Premium Leather Stirrup Leathers
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Derby Originals
Model: Premium Leather Stirrup Leathers
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I purchased these from Tack Wholesale for $25 because I needed new leathers for my favorite saddle.

Likes: They were inexpensive and are nice enough leathers to show in.

Dislikes: The only thing that I could say, if pressed, was that after using them with no issues for four or five years my husband rode my horse one day in my saddle for twenty minutes. Now, it could just be a problem with the husband, not the leathers, but somehow they must have stretched funny so the next day when I rode I had to have the leathers on two different holes to get it (almost, but not exactly) even! Again, this was after 4-5 years of using these regularly. I think it was my husband.

Quality: Reinforced ends with stainless steel buckles. Several hole punches to insure fit. They are a good buy for the money and held up right until my husband had something to do with them. They still don't show any signs of stretching at all and I'm completely confused! Fairly supple, although not as supple as some of the nicer leathers that cost three times as much.

Summary: Good leathers for the money, fine for lower-level showing and everyday riding. I would buy these again (and it seems like I'm going to have to...)
