Twisted Stockman Stirrups
Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Saddlery Trading Company
Model: Twisted Stockman Stirrups
Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: Purchased online from James Saddlery, Brisbane, Australia for $60AU plus $30AU s/h.

Likes: After trying 2x4's, "e z knees" and "leg savers", I decided to spring what I thought was going to be a custom-made pair of *true* twisted stirrups (that is, twisted on the vertical axis). After months of searching, I finally found a ready-made pair at a fraction of the cost of custom stirrups online at James Saddlery, Australia. The stirrup bar hangs like a regular stirrup but the tread twists out at about 45 degrees. Exactly what I needed for joint relief.

Dislikes: Wish they came with non-slip / shock-absorbing pads but those can be easily added. Only other noticeable difference is when lifting or carrying the saddle they don't always stay hooked over the horn as well as my old straight stirrups.

Quality: They are incredibly well made and very handsome. These babies are rock solid cast 18/8 polished stainless steel. No stains, scratches, burrs, bending or flexing. These stirrups are better made than my kitchen cutlery!

Summary: Even including the relatively high cost of shipping, these stirrups were worth every penny and the time spent looking. They will outlast me by many many miles on the trail and probably several lifetimes more.
