Tech Venice Young Stirrups are designed as horse riding safety stirrups for children. They are made from lightweight aluminium, with a revolutionary safety system to allow quick release in a fall, and are available in a range of eye-catching colours.
The special safety mechanism allows the outside arm to open when required, thus helping to prevent the child's foot being caught in the stirrup in the event of a fall. The arm is loaded with a special spring so it can be returned to its original position after the release.
One end of the arm is fixed to the tread, while the other end secures to the top of the stirrup with a special magnetic locking system, which means it is only possible for the arm to open when a certain amount of pressure is applied.
Like all of the patented Tech stirrups, the Venice Young model is 100% made in Italy from aluminium billet and fastened with stainless steel screws.
An anodised final coating gives a shiny finish and ensures the stirrups stay looking great for years to come.
The patented spiked grip is designed to help avoid accumulation of mud and water in the tread, and therefore enables excellent grip for the rider's foot.
The top eye to thread the stirrup leather through is specially shaped to allow the stirrups to sit in the correct position and ensure rider comfort. Tech Venice Kids' Stirrups are designed to be used with normal stirrup leathers.
They are easy to clean, too. Simply use clean water and a soft brush and cloth, and then wipe dry with a clean cloth afterwards. It is recommended to use a spray of WD40 on the spring loaded mechanism from time to time.
Tread size: 4in
These stirrups are recommended for use up to shoe size EU35 (UK 3), and up to a bodyweight of 35kg (ie up until the age of 7-9 years).
