As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Say "Goodbye!" to losing a stirrup while riding, these pads provide superior grip for added security

You can easily attach them to your own irons. Guaranteed to stay firmly in place. If you spend any time in the saddle, you will greatly appreciate these unique treaded rubber iron pads. Treaded rubber will last years and years of constant use. Wraps around the entire iron, thereby eliminating foot to steel contact that often causes a rider to lose their stirrups.  Reduces impact to help alleviate added stress on the knees. Helps keep heels down. Easily attaches in less than 5 Minutes. Helps improve body and leg position. Should be sized down by a half size for jointed irons.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gripping stirrup pads Love these pads!! I ride young & green horses a lot. I have lost a stirrup less often since using these pads because these pads wrap all of the way around the stirrup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I was really nervous about spending $30 on this product. After riding in them for a few weeks, I'm so glad I bought them! They provide the perfect base for a stable leg. I haven't lost my stirrup since I've started using these pads! The package says to buy a size down if you have jointed stirrups, but I found the size I got worked fine since the joints didn't go to the bottom of the stirrup. Overall a really great purchase!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stirrup pads I bought these for my daughter, 11 yrs old. I was sick of stirrup pads that don't fit in the metal groove on the bottom of her stirrups, and these looked grippy so we gave them a try.Installation is easy, just zip ties, I tightened them with a pair of needle nose pliers I keep in my tack box but I could have just tightened them by hand. You'll need nippers or scissors to trim the excess zip tie ends.When she rode in them, I noticed that her legs and feet were under her (in good hip heel alignment) and I didn't have to yell at her to get her legs back and her heels down. She tells me that her boots dont slip out of the stirrups anymore. These stirrup pads seem to allow the ankles to more comfortably flex down in to a heels down position, while securely gripping the bottom of the boot. The rider can relax a little bit more. And for my daughter, this actually gave her a more lovely riding position. I definitely recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for stability I've used these on and off for years and have found them to be helpful for stability and less foot movement in the stirrup. I prefer it over the sandpaper stirrup pads. This recent pair was purchased for my daughter and she likes them too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just $30 and a game changer Bought these and never lost a stirrup again, something I'd had a problem with. Now, *six years* later, these things are still going strong. They last and last. Yesterday I rode in some regular stirrups without this pad... I felt unstable and my toes started to ache. So if you have any tendency to arthritis or joint pain, I think these things are stupendous. These + some heavy steel filis stirrups and you are set for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from pricey, but worth it I had a trainer tell me years ago to try these stirrup pads and I finally gave in and bought a pair. I hadn't tried them yet because of the price, but it has definitely been worth the money! I tend to let my feet slip out of the stirrups, but these help me keep them in!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product These are awesome. In the "If you don't have'em, buy 'em" category. Really durable, really work. Great grip and good on the feet. I have sensitive, bony feet that used to go numb in the irons. Not a problem anymore. Also, losing a stirrup is a rarity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stirrup Iron Pads! I wouldn't say you're never going to lose a stirrup again, but they sure as heck make it a lot harder to anymore. I think they also absorb a little bit of shock too, but I have no way of scientifically proving that! I got my husband to put these on for me as he's stronger, and I did not want them to move a centimeter. I just wish you didn't have to see the ends of the zip-ties underneath. Be careful of scratching your leathers, you just have to learn to put up your irons a little differently is all. I recommend them to anyone I see.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfort Iron Pads I love these iron pads! I found that I was often losing my stirrups from under my feet because I had transitioned from a flat-going hunter to a very powerful and bouncy saddleseat horse. These pads help keep my feet planted in the stirrups and I feel way more secure! Nice and grippy and durable. Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more lost stirrups for me My trainer kept telling me to buy these but I didn't think they really would make a difference. My last set of pads were ready to be replaced so I decided to give them a try. I'm amazed at how much this helps me keep my stirrups. I would definitely recommend them for jumpers especially.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says I've been using these iron pads for about three months now and it's made a BIG difference in my ridding. My feet NEVER slip out of the stirrups like they were before. When cantering I would become tense, afraid that my feet would slip out then become off balance. Now instead of raising the stirrups I can have them low and my feet stay put.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more losing stirrups These are quick to install and really provide good grip. Although a bit pricy for stirrup pads, they should last a long time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these pads! A few of the ladies at my barn had these pads and when I needed replacements I decided to give these a try. They came highly recommended and after my first ride in them I knew why, they are absolutely wonderful. The pads are very comfortable on the ball of the foot and offer excellent slip resistance. All around excellence for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheap and very effective for foot stability, these were not a replacement but placed on a second saddle, original pair 5 + years and still perfect

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secure Grip for Stirrups! This is a great product, have used before & just reordered for new stirrups. Considerably helps for knee/ ankle pain for arthritis etc. Keeps those irons in place, with a very secure feeling. Highly recommend for green horses & jumping. I have tried other replacement pads- these by far are the best. The price is a little high for what they are, but worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aaaahhhhhh There were a great addition toy stirrups. Try truly do relieve leg fatigue and are super comfortable as their name says.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy these!!! I have to confess, when I first saw these I thought I would never actually pay money for them. They seem expensive, smell funny, and look, well, weird. I was given a pair of these for free as a sample when they first came on the market so I felt obligated to at least TRY them. Pardon me for shouting, but YOU MUST BUY THESE. I never, EVER, lose my stirrups anymore and positioning my feet in the irons is a breeze because they don't slide around. Plus, the rubber gives just enough for extra comfort but still leaves a good feel under your foot. They look awesomely technical, but are a must for beginners. They are also easy to install and come in every size imagineable. I have since purchased three more sets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Easy to do, and great for those rainy days when normally your foot was slide. Also very comfy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. I don't know how they do it. I used these stirrups on this crazy pony I ride named owen. My best friend rachel has these and has told me how wonderful they were. As I was riding and he got a little bucky and was jumping SIDEWAYS i really needed a good grip and my stirrups. these suckers stayed glued to my feet! truly amazing! And when rachel falls off every so often they let go so her foot doesnt get caught in the stirrup. I'm really amazed and would recommend this product to any of my friends!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far a winner! I mostly ride hunter under saddle and some over fences on the breed show circuit and I bought these stirrup pads on the recommendation of a friend who is an eventer. She couldn't say enough good things about how well they keep you from losing a stirrup and how comfy they are. I put them on my stirrups while at a show and had only ridden in them a couple of times (and really like them!) before going into my first riding class. My horse is normally unflappable and going to the left we had no issues. To the right, he suddenly realized that "OMG, THERE ARE CATTLE JUST OUTSIDE THE ARENA" and made a quick hard right, unceremoniously dumping me. While in mid-air I remember thinking "Oh please, don't let my foot get hung up in the stirrup with these new pads." Thank goodness, my foot came out with no problems, even though while in the saddle they felt very secure. So far, I love them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My feet were slipping in the stirrups after jumping through the water complexes on cross-country. These add the traction I needed. I did wrap a couple loops of black Vetrap around them to prevent them from scratching my calfskin saddle though. The only thing I don't like is the appearance of the zip-tie knobs under the iron after you attach them. But they work really well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these!!! I just got my first english saddle, and i needed stirrup pads, AND I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE!! They are very nice, and my foot never slips out of my stirrup. I ride a horse with a very uncomfortable canter, and i always loose my stirrups, but with these i never lose them. ALSO! I used to get really bad back pains after i rode, and my knees used to hurt, but now, i am never in pain after i ride!! THESE ARE AMAZING!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stirrup Pad These are some of the most comfortable stirrup pads ever, and they help stabilize the leg. I think they must run large as I have a 5 inch fillis iron and the 5 inch pad was too wide to fit inside. I had to use the 4.75 inch pad, which fits well.
