WINNER- 8 Prestigious International Awards

Track Rider’s Horror Dragging Ordeal
   This dragging incident at Sandown on 6th October 2004 follows another near fatal dragging incident whereby Matthew Palmer was dragged for 100m and blacked out. When he came too Matthew said he had no feeling from his waist down and thought he was paralyzed. Fortunately Matthew only suffered severe bruising.
    Matthew has since been using Track Toe Stoppers and said "They are good - Too good!" because he was concerned if he had to ride another trainers horse without Toe Stoppers. Matthew also used the Race Toe Stoppers last Saturday 2nd October 2004.

To properly fit a stirrup:  When foot with shoe is in the stirrup, with the ball of the foot on the tread, you should have “There must be 15-20 mm to spare when the foot is in the stirrup over to one side” Pony Club Gear Check Guidelines -Jan 2006 or 1/2 to 3/4 inch.

Toe Stoppers: Rated the best safety device since the helmet, Toe Stoppers have won eight prestigious international awards! Riders who use Toe Stoppers may gain a competitive advantage because they no longer lose concentration when their feet slip forward off the stirrup iron. Toe Stoppers keep feet in the correct position and prevent feet from slipping. Balance and concentration is improved, as well as performance and results. Toe Stoppers are made of a durable material and attach easily with Velcro making for comfortable, safe riding and dismounting. Designed to fit western, endurance and English stirrups/irons, Toe Stoppers attach easily by sliding into the stirrup, the side straps wrap around the sides, top and base of the stirrup. Safety can be added to any stirrup! Did you know that being hooked up in the stirrup iron and dragged is the most dangerous aspect of horse riding resulting in serious injuries and death? Latest statistics show there are 210 horse-riding deaths and 75,000 serious injuries each year in America alone. Over the past 20 years in Australia alone, 410 riders have died, on average 20 horse riders die each year and there are 3,000 serious injuries. Avoid the inherent risk of dragging or worse. Toe Stoppers are sold in pairs, with two colors to choose from in the following sizes. State size, color and style. Approved for all sanctioned equestrian events and used at the Olympic games.   Item # ST-TS - $85.00  (Regular Price $99.95 pair)  ALL ToeStoppers are STITCHED for durability.

Sizes and styles below:

MRE's:  "Meals Ready to Eat"- by The Wornick Co:  These are the REAL MREs that were conceived by NASA over 30 years ago and introduced on Apollo flights to the moon, in Skylab, and on every US space Shuttle flight from Enterprise to Challenger. They have gone to Grenada, to fight forest fires in Alaska and bring relief after hurricanes. They fed Desert Shield and Desert Storm and they've done the job again in Afghanistan and Iraq Great for camping, car trips, search and rescue, hikers, bikers, truck drivers, horse shows, backpacking and snow trips such as cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, ice fishing, snow camping and in any emergency situation.
   The secret to this delicious instant survival meal is in the pouch. US military research labs took the lead in the technology and development of the POUCH, which has three special layers allowing the food to be sealed and then cooked inside never being exposed to the air until ready to eat. Thus, the food is sterilized and blocked from future contamination. This packaging delivers an almost unbelievable shelf life of 5-10 years (not 2 years like current commercial preparations). Food, which is not FREEZE-DRIED, therefore retains its natural moisture, gravy, sauces and juices.  The resulting taste and texture are much more realistic and naturally delicious than those of dehydrated and freeze dried foods. With over 30 years of field research experts have carefully designed these meals for maximum nutrition (an average of 55% meat compared with 35% normally), familiarity, and TOTAL convenience! These meals are ready to eat right from the pouch at room temperature (as they are pre-cooked). Or they can be heated the following ways.

1) Just add a little water to activate the self-contained non-flame chemical heater, officially called the "MRE Heater", which is included in each full meal.
2) Placing next to a non-liquid heat source: radiator, engine block, or even the human body. Be careful of burning or melting the pouch if the heat source is too hot.
3) Boiling for 3-5 min. - take the pouch from outer carton and place it in clean boiling water heated from available sources: fire, heating tabs, or stoves.
4) Microwave 2-3 min. after removing from the pouch. The pouch contains an aluminum, non-micro-waveable layer that gives the pouch such a long shelf life.

These are so good that we eat them.
 The Entrees are super for one meal or supplement the full meal with extra calories.   The full-meal packages – have “extras” in the form of power bars, cracker snacks, etc. – provide plenty of food for one person for a whole day.
