Why We Love This

Herm Sprenger Bow Balance Stirrups ensure improved leg position. Changing the weight ratio on the Herm Sprenger Bow Balance Stirrups results in perfect balance and great comfort for the rider. Shock absorbing grip is achieved by a widened tread made of rubber with two types of properties. Bow Balance design provides easy "pick up" upon mounting as they require very little effort on the rider's part - a simple touch of the foot to the stirrups and it gently folds onto the rider's foot. Based on Herm Sprenger's innovative four-link system on the inside of the stirrups, making them extremely comfortable and especially good for helping to prevent joint pain. Feature the patented System 4 joint.

Made in Germany

    Herm Sprenger Bow Balance Stirrups is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 96.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait I had no idea what a difference stirrups would make in terms of comfort. I rode someone else’s horse and who had these Herm Sprenger stirrups and I was amazed by how much better my joints felt. I saved up my money and bought ‘em for myself!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I bought these I have always wanted these stirrups since they day I saw them in my SmartPak catalog. I have had problems with my right knee from falls from jumping. I was starting to have some hip pain from riding dressage, and I was also tried of loosing my stirrups. So I finally broke down and bought the bow balance stirrups. Best purchase ever no more pain in my knee or hip. No more lost stirrups, and my leg stays nicely in place against my horses side. They do take some getting used to but they are worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stirrups I have only ridden in these a few times, but they are wonderfully secure. Also, the pads make great currycombs for a horse that doesn't like a hard curry, so I bought an extra pair of these pads to use for grooming.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally I can ride without pain! Yes I had seen the great reviews. Yes riding was getting increasingly painful on my knees. But they were expensive so I waited. And waited. I had a birthday and splurged. The difference has been truly remarkable. I went from limping after an hour trail ride to riding for two hours and feeling darn wonderful after dismounting. Huge difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Necessary for knee trouble I had these years ago, before the saddle they were on got stolen. I hated to shell out for them again, but I have bad knees (from years as a teen being taught poor jumping position) and was starting to really suffer as I began riding 4x/week. These have since saved me. They definitely take a little adjusting with your leathers to get right, and make sure that the Sprenger logo is facing you (I definitely put one on backwards at first!). I'll definitely purchase again, but these are frankly more expensive than my saddles, so I doubt I'll have any issues with thieves!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! I bought these, rode in them once and then immediately splurged on a second pair for my other saddle. They are wonderful!
    Date published: 2020-02-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with this purchase! Before buying I did research for months about the stirrups. I was very wary about paying this much for stirrups. After one ride I have noticed a major difference in my riding , I can use my legs ! Love love ,
    Date published: 2019-12-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! I've ridden with these about 3 times so far, and I really like them. They definitely reduce the pressure on my knees, which is what I was looking for. Even though they're very flexible, they don't feel less supportive or stable than regular irons> I also appreciate that they hang at a better angle to the saddle, so there seems to be less torque on my knees, and I like that they're a bit lighter in weight than my ancient Fillis irons.
    Date published: 2019-11-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was a bit sceptical, but desperate I purchased these several months ago, replacing earlier version of Herm Sprenger jointed stirrups. I'm old, and my foot hurts after many activities, along with riding. With these stirrups, I no longer get pain in my foot after riding. Now if I can just get my feet to quit hurting after walking on the beach barefoot. Sadly, hasn't improved my riding: too many years playing polocrosse.
    Date published: 2019-05-25
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought these about 2 years ago and they worked amazingly. I have horribly weak ankles and they did the trick for this long but now my ankles are getting extremely sore again and plus since i’m an eventer, when I would go through water, my foot would slip so easily so it just isn’t a good match for me anymore.
