Meet Jessie Smith South Australian dressage and show rider, who also happens to be the first Australian featured rider! At just 18 and 21 Jessie and Storm respectively have already achieved some big things. Her recent accomplishments include finishing in the top 10 at the Interschool National Championships last year, being a finalist for the Showhorse/Dressage Scholarship and being named on the 2018 South Australian Youth Development Dressage Squad.

Aphrodite Tech Stirrups – Product Review
What I love about the Aphrodite Tech Stirrups:
- Clean, elegant design which is stylish enough to take you from the dressage ring to the show hack classes. The design includes clever features such as rounded edges on the footbed, which means no scratching or marking on your saddle.
- Super grippy, wide foot bed. Instead of the traditional rubber inserts, the foot bed of the Aphrodite stirrup irons is covered with small bumps which really help you to keep your foot in the iron as well as giving you plenty of support.
- Light weight, meaning that you are not adding additional weight to the saddle. Another clever design feature is that the weight is concentrated in the tread which prevents you loosing your irons.
- Well priced – In Australia these irons retail for $220 through Ocean Easy Stables. And if you’re interested but aren’t sure they’ll suit you, Ocean Easy Stables offer a great ride before you buy option.
Importantly these irons are also legal for competitions under the Equestrian Australia rules.
My rating for these stirrups if 4/5 stars.
