Stirrups are a device for supporting the rider’s leg when landing on a horse and riding. The first creators of stirrups decided at once a lot of problems – finally, it was possible to drive fast, it was possible to make jumps over obstacles the rider lifted himself on the stirrups, thus saving his rear from crushing blows. The landing became much more reliable since it was possible not only to rest with our feet but also to maneuver the center of gravity. It was possible to turn in the saddle and hang from it, striking in different directions. Finally, the ability to start a horse at a gallop repeatedly increased the effectiveness of the attack.
First of all, the stirrup gave support to the rider
Now he no longer risked falling out of the stirrups during his swing with a weapon. Over time, the stirrups improved. The materials from which the stirrups are made now are wood, metal, leather, plastic, and rubber can be used. Often, at the bottom of the stirrup, there is a special non-slip lining for the foot, so that the foot does not slip into the stirrup and provides a better grip of the stirrup and shoes.
There may also be a stopper on the stirrup, which is a shoe that secures the toe of the rider’s boot from falling deep into the stirrup. There are still safe stirrups, with a different rubber side, detachable when pressed hard in the direction of the leg of the rider. This avoids getting your feet stuck in the stirrup.
