I have a left leg prosthesis and currently I am using the Abetta Escape Breakaway stirrups while taking lessons.
The prosthetic foot does not slide very well in and out of the Abetta Escape safety stirrups I bought. I got the mens ones so they would be wider but I am having a hard time getting my foot in them and then hard to get it back out too.
I have to put my foot in right up the the heel with both feet as I cannot feel the stirrup under the ball of my foot, (The western levels manual says this is appropriate)
I think maybe I need to find some wider stirrups, maybe a wider base will be better?
If I remember right it was easier to get my foot in them when I used regular stirrups without the tapedero (sp) on it.
My foot would fall out all of the time with the covered stirrups as it would not go in far enough.
Is there anyone else who rides with a prosthesis that can has any suggestions as to what to use for western riding and what works for them?
I don't have experience with a prosthesis, but if you're looking for a good breakaway stirrup with some grip, the Freejump stirrup is the best out there on the market. Horse Rookie did a great roundup of 10 stirrups ranked on grip/comfort/price/safety >> https://horserookie.com/best-stirrups-for-jumping/. You don't necessarily need to be a jumper to need a solid stirrup. I hope your riding journey is everything you hoped it to be. You are an inspiration to me and many equestrians out there, no doubt. Happy Riding!
