Should I alternate between my Ophena magnetic stirrups and my traditional stirrups to not lose habit?

We honestly believe that once you try the Ophena Magnetic Stirrups, you are not going to want to ride with anything else. The connection between you and your stirrups will be more than magnetic ;)

In case you are worried about the differences in grip and forgetting how to ride with traditional stirrups, you can read this article we have in regards to the differences between magnetic and traditional grip.

Riding also involves muscle memory and switching between magnetic stirrups and traditional stirrups shouldn't be an issue - in fact, since muscle memory can sometimes play tricks, riding with Ophena's safety stirrups can help you by releasing pressure and making you feel more relaxed which eventually will lead to better balance and an overall better riding experience. All of which traditional stirrups can't do.

To put it in simple words: you shouldn't loose habit of riding in traditional stirrups by riding with Ophena's magnetic stirrups and we don't think you will want to switch back anyway.

How did we do?

The stirrups repel my boots. How can I solve this?
