From horse expert, Dr. Robert Miller, DVM:
Your recent clinic overwhelmed me. Your ability to communicate your desires to the horses with no obvious signals, is extraordinary. You were able to get the horse's head to drop, look where you wanted it to, and to obtain movements in various directions in response to the vaguest of stimuli . . . .
"You are doing a great job. I call you the ’clinician’s clinician' " . . . Regards, Bob
You have one head, and you are worth it!
Finally! Someone has made an atractive looking, practical and professional safety stirrup that guarantees you won't get dragged by your horse if you fall off and cannot get your foot out of the stirrup.
I encourage you to call or write to the men who invented and manufacture these life-saving stirrups. Mike and Jake McCoy at the BREAKAWAY STIRRUP COMPANY in Laurel, Montana .
This forward-looking safety-minded people designed an ingenious mechanism that does not allow your foot to get hung up when you are roping, cutting, jumping, penning, pleasure riding or starting colts!
MY GOAL IS TO HELP YOU LEARN HOW TO RIDE WELL, and HAVE A LOT OF FUN DOING IT. RIDING IS A RISKY BUSINESS AND FALLS ARE SOMETIMES INEVITABLE, you must PROTECT YOUR SELF FROM AN ACCIDENTAL DRAGGING.
The McCoys have extended the generous offer of a three-month payment plan to all my students. This is incredible opportunity makes it possible for many people who, otherwise, would not have the chance to purchase them.I WANT PEOPLE TO LEARN ALL THEY CAN ABOUT RIDING ALL SORTS OF HORSES. WE HAVE A GOOD TIME RIDING, AND IT HIS IS DUE IN LARGE PART TO THE PEACE OF MIND THAT COMES FROM KNOWING THAT WHEN YOU GET IN A WRECK YOUR FOOT WILL COME FREE FROM THE STIRRUP AND THE HORSE.
Driving to town? Most people fasten on a seat belt. Playing a little ice hockey? Football? Fencing? Face guards and helmets are donned and the game is on!
More bull and bronc riders than ever before now wear protective chest plates and a helmet.
Why? Their children and wives want to go out for a meal together after the show...and onward into their lives - - - healthy, happy and in one piece!
Riders . . . check out the McCoys and their safety stirrups for men, women and children. For sport, recreation and show. Many styles and all sizes!
Leslie Desmond, friends of Leslie Desmond and their students who have all fallen clear of a horse thanks to breakaway stirrups from STI.
