Equi Wing
Wide Tread Hyper Nylon vs. Aluminum
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Equi Wing
Model: Wide Tread Hyper Nylon vs. Aluminum
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I acquired my first pair of aluminum EquiWing stirrups when I bought a used saddle. I purchased a second pair of hyper nylon EquiWing stirrups from my local tack store for $70.

Likes: I like the wide foot bed which keeps my foot in the proper position and reduces leg fatigue. Unlike the aluminum pair, the nylon has encouraged me to weight my stirrups less and focus more on my seat and legs. Surprisingly this has not resulted in my losing a stirrup but has given me a more independent seat. My leg is quieter and my sensitive horse appreciates the difference. The black nylon is also subtle, easy to clean and adds just that much less weight to my saddle overall... for hauling and for bonking me in the nose!

Dislikes: I found the used EquiWing aluminum metal dull, unattractive and stirrups bulky, clunky and they could not polished. For me, I tended to weight them too much - to try to keep them in place and they banged around. The nylon runs up on the leathers and stays there, out of the way and is kind to my new french leather saddle. There really isn't any I don't like about the light weight nylon EquiWings!

Quality: The black nylon EquiWings are nicely finished and arrived with cheese-grater pads already installed and a set of additional rubber pads. I prefer the cheese grater pads - the entire unit can be easily washed in water. There were no rough edges or surfaces to irritate my horse or scratch my saddle.

Summary: I'm a convert to the wide tread, light weight stirrups, not only for convenience, but because it has improved my riding position. M
