A stirrup iron in the English riding disciplines suspends from a narrow strip of leather and offers a flat base of support for the ball of the rider’s foot to assist with mounting and riding. Stirrup irons got their name from centuries’ old versions that were originally forged from iron. Today, they can be made from long-wearing stainless steel, lightweight composite materials, aluminum and even heavy-duty colored plastic. Styles of stirrups vary now just as widely, from traditional Fillis irons to peacock “safety” stirrups to designs that relieve stress on the rider’s joints, remove excess weight or make proper leg positioning easier to achieve. No matter what style of stirrup irons you prefer, Dover Saddlery has you covered.
