AS riders, stirrups are not only an essential element for our tack, but have also in recent years become a great statement, with so much choice in terms of style and colour!
At Old Mill Saddlery, we stock a huge range of stirrups from a number of world leading equestrian brands. It’s not surprising that some of our most popular styles of stirrups are made by Acavallo, a world renowned Italian brand. Acavallo is mostly known for its stunning quality and modern style.
Acavallo Opera GP Evol Stirrups
The Acavallo Opera GP Evol stirrups offer a unique design, where the special patented loop construction allows the stirrup to adhere to the saddle flap. This avoids friction between the leg and the stirrup allowing a more correct, comfortable and secure ride. These stirrup irons also boast a large stainless steel stirrup pad, which offers riders a better grip whilst relieving tension in the hips, knees, ankles and calves.
The Acavallo Opera stirrups have been an extremely popular choice in stirrup irons, coming in with a rating of 4.9/5 by our customers.
Comments from our customers include:
“Love these stirrups for everyday riding and they are brilliant when jumping as they seem to stabilise my foot, they are lightweight, forward facing and have a lovely wide base.”
“I love these stirrups… Lightweight with super grip tread. Would definitely recommend.”
“Very happy with these stirrups, they keep your feet nicely positioned and I feel more secure.”
The Acavallo Opera GP Evol Stirrups are priced at £80.70 and are available in black or brown, with a range of options for your desired country flag.
Acavallo Arena Alupro Stirrup
The Acavallo Arena Alupro stirrup has a unique breakaway system, where the pivoting stirrup arm allows the quick release of the foot when necessary. The stirrup is also constructed with flexible polymers, making it less rigid and much more comfortable for the rider than traditional stirrup irons. In addition, the springing stirrup bow and foot support system effectively absorbs short-term and sudden impacts (for example during rising trot, jumping and hacking). This offers considerable comfort for riders in the feet, ankles, knees and hips.
The Acavallo Alupro stirrup irons are rated 4.8/5 by our customers, with comments including:
“Fabulous modern twist on the safety stirrup.”
“I have arthritis in my ankles and these stirrups have helped ease a lot of the pain due to the wide foot-bed. Very light-weight too.”
“These stirrups are lightweight, and have a wide and very grippy tread. Very comfy to ride in. Have great peace of mind from the safety features too.”
The Acavallo Arena Alupro stirrups are priced at £125.95 (adults) and £113.95 (junior) and are available in a range of colour options including black, blue, bronze, red, orange, rose gold and titanium.
