Based off of a European design, the MDC Sport Stirrups have an elegant show-ring-ready look, sure to please even the most discerning rider. Because they come from MDC, you can rest assured that these stirrups will bring you a more comfortable, safe and secure ride. How?
MDC strongly believes that stirrups that adjust to your body are better stirrups, and make for a better ride. In keeping with this belief, the MDC Sport Classic features a patented adjustable top, offering innovative and technical support. With three preset stirrup positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees, you are able to position the stirrup according to your personal preference. This produces a better foot and leg position, resulting in reduced stress on your ankles, knees, hips and back, helping to alleviate pain or discomfort. In fact, most riders experience relief from discomfort in as little as one or two days! Furthermore, the preset open angle greatly reduces the tendency of standard stirrups to turn back to the horse and catch a rider’s boot during a fall.
The MDC Sport Stirrups features non-slip aluminum pads which combine the best of both worlds. While they provide ample grip to keep you secure in your saddle, these pads are less aggressive than 'cheese grater' pads, which can cut boots, breeches, saddles leather and do not easily release in the event of a fall.
Additionally, MDC Sport Stirrups are the only stirrups on the market that offer interchangeable widths. Two simple screws allow you to alternate between the wide base non-slip aluminum pad, and a traditional width non-slip aluminum pad, suitable for hunters, equitation and dressage.
