Fast N Forward Stirrups are designed with a forward angle to help you keep your toes down.  Having your toes down allows you to maintain proper balance and position throughout your run.  The Patented design helps to keep your feet slightly behind your hips, giving you an athletic stance in your saddle.  The forward angle also helps to prevent you from losing your stirrup during the run.  FNF Stirrups have been proven effective by many barrel racers.
