Re: [RC] Questions about stirrup cages/tapaderos - rides2far

Friend told me to get cowboy boots, that is the purpose of them 
since  > they are smooth-soled, pointed-toed, and most importantly slip
if  > they get hung up in the stirrup.  

I was diddling around on You-Tube and somehow ended up watching barrel
racing wrecks. I was amazed how many times that a horse slid down on his
side then jumped back up and the rider was hung up. I'm sure they were
wearing boots so that's kinda scary. I've also seen people lean too far
forward going up a big hill and have their English safety leathers come
off. So, I'm very happy to use my safety cages. They make me feel *much*
better just knowing they're there.
