British brand FoxyEquestrian have made a name for themselves with their bright and brilliant cross-country colours and faux fur pom hat silks. They also design and craft a range of useful tools that make life easier for riders, including their innovative Fleece Stirrup Pockets (£20.00).

They are, as the name would suggest, a way to protect your precious saddle from bumps and scratches. Most importantly those from your stirrups and girth when you’re not riding. They were first designed for use with Freejump stirrups and leathers (because they don’t run up like traditional stirrups). Because founder of FoxyEquestrian, Sophie, wanted something that prevented her stirrups from damaging the immaculate leather of her jumping saddle. However they are suitable for use with any saddle or stirrup types.

You simply place each stirrup in the pocket and lay the girth over the top. To therefore preserve the condition of the seat, panels and cantle of your precious saddle in storage or transit.

They are available in navy or black. Just like the rest of the FoxyEquestrian range, these can be personalised with the addition of bright colours and a name on each one (for an additional £5.00). The name can be in any one of the 26 vinyl colours available from FoxyEquestrian. And a maximum of 9 characters.

The FoxyEquestrian Stirrup Pockets would make the perfect ‘good luck’ gift for a keen showjumper. As they would be a lovely little reminder every time they get their saddle ready for competition. Or perhaps you’ve just invested in a beautiful Devoucoux saddle and the Stirrup Pockets sound like just the ticket to keep it as good as new.
