For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Thorogood
Model: Tuff Stirrup/Composite Stirrup
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: My husband found these stirrups at a dressage tack shop while we were traveling in Maine. Paid roughly $15 for them. HE bought them because he was tired of getting whacked in the shin with my weighted fox-hunting/jumper type of heavy stirrup iron.

Likes: My husband replaced my stirrups without my knowledge JUST BEFORE a 100 mile endurance ride. I WAS NOT HAPPY! You typically don't make any adjustments to your tack or clothes at this time, but, there was no time to change them back before our initial 20+ mile loop. Well, long story short: they've never been off my saddle and now mom-in-law and sister-in-law both own a pair. I had difficulty in keeping my irons before, but, since this change, I've NEVER lost my stirrups!!! I thought a HEAVY stirrup was better for this, but, these light weight ones are much much better. These stirrups are great, and must be a tiny bit flexible, although you can't feel that when riding. They feel stable, but my back and knees can certainly feel the difference. My sister-in-law has problems with her feet and knees (fused bones in feet, knees were making her think of quitting endurance). These stirrups fixed her problems and fixed my back aches. Also, my saddle is much lighter with these.

Dislikes: I wish they had a fancier type that would look better in the show ring (i.e. silver-colored sides). Also, the fact that they are black as well as my boot and half chap, it makes it almost impossible for me to see my foot/heel placement on the lesson videos I depend on...I have limited lesson money, so I often video and watch myself and I watch and re-watch all of my lessons to help me improve. I think placing white tape on them might help.

Quality: Very durable, can withstand anything. Very tough and solid despite light weight.

Summary: WONDERFUL! Invest in a pair of these immediately!
