Manufacturer: MDC
Model: Ultimate Stirrup Irons
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I bought these at Dover Saddlery last year after I began doing some serious jumping. They cost $190. I figured a pair of jointed and offset irons would make my leg position better and make it more comfortable to ride. Initially I had bought the Herm Sprenger Bow Balance stirrups, but I didn't really like them so I tried these.

Likes: These are great stirrups! While my friend who has normal stirrups complains about her ankles, I'm perfectly fine and comfortable! They look really nice, especially with my new Pessoa saddle. I love how they click into different settings. You can choose from normal, 45 degrees, and 90 degrees. I always use the 90 degree setting to get the best effect. The leathers never touch my legs, which is wonderful, and helps them not wear out and crack as quickly. When I untack my horse, I put my stirrups back to the normal setting and then they lie flat against the saddle. These stirrups also are jointed, and allow me to put my heels down more easily.

Dislikes: There's nothing I don't like about these stirrups!

Quality: These are definitely built to last. They are about the weight of a normal fillis stirrup. After a year, they clean up to look almost brand new!

Summary: These stirrups are perfect! Even if you don't have leg problems, these will make your ride even more comfortable! The only thing to remember is that it will be difficult to pick up your stirrups at first since they aren't where you'd expect them to be :)
