The Tech Venice Young Evo Stirrups are designed as a modern horse riding safety stirrup for children.
They are made from lightweight metal, with a revolutionary safety system to allow quick release in a fall, and are available in lots 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 locking mechanism cushioned by a rubber insert, which allows it to be particularly reactive when the release is required.
Like all of the patented Tech stirrups, the Venice Young Evo model is made in Italy from the highest quality metals 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. It is angled at 2.5 degrees to assist with a 'heels down' position.
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 Young Evo 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.
