How a 10” Rubber Band Can Make a Foot of Difference

Thursday, April 30, 2015

Have you ever been horseback riding? While most consider not falling an accomplishment, rodeo competitors have a lot more keys to success.

One such factor is keeping their feet in the stirrups, which hang on each side of the saddle to receive the rider’s feet.

During competition, time spent putting a foot back into a stirrup can be the difference between winning and losing.

To combat this, some riders use up Rodeo Bands. These 10” bands are tied into a figure eight to hold the feet in the stirrups for barrel racing.
