For November's issue of Horse & Rider, we're preparing an article on one of the worst potentially deadly riding wrecks--getting hung up in a stirrup and being dragged.

In the research process, we went to the Web site of STI Inc., which makes and markets breakaway safety stirrups.

Now I'm curious: Do any of you ride with this form of stirrup? For those who don't: Were you aware that such stirrups exist?

Check out the link, and let me know your thoughts on this element of adding greater safety potential to your rides.
