And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Herm Sprenger System 4 Stirrups is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice but exchanging for bow balance I liked these irons--I just liked the bow balance ones more. If you like cheese graters you can put them in these but not the bow balance irons (they have an awesome wide grippy footbed).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had these irons for a few months. At first my feet were a little wobbly in them, but now after using them a 4-5 days a week for a couple months, I'm used to them and really like them. It only took a few weeks to get used to them. Don't worry, it's not like they wobble all over. My right ankle just isn't as strong due to a few surgeries. I feel a lot safer in these irons than my basic irons.
    Date published: 2014-10-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been in several riding/horse accidents when I was younger. I struggled with severe knee/ankle pain and muscle soreness/ fatigue when I rode. Now I can get through rides with minuscule pain to no pain at all. I like the give in these irons, I have found that it has allowed me to be able to have a soft and relaxed leg.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Stirrups I tried a few other types of stirrups but didn't like any of them until I ordered and tried these Herm Sprenger stirrups. They are definetly worth the money and I highly recommend them to any rider.
    Date published: 2013-07-29
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappointed Quality stirrup. Didn't do my ankle any favors. Doesn't mean it won't work for you. Worth trying. Sadly returned.
    Date published: 2013-04-05
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Undecided Had to send first pair back, too small even though I had customer service assistance in sizing. Three days ago received correct size. Quality stirrup. Have ridden all three days, there does not appear to be an advantageous relationship between my rolling ankle and this stirrup. Too much "play" in the stirrup so far. Yet, I will try a few more rides because I love the happiness guarantee at Smartpak. Also ordered the Bow Balance and am trying those at the same time. Same opinion. One warning, if the stirrup is a close fit size wise, it is VERY difficult to intentionally drop a stirrup if needed because the rubber on the sides has sticking power to your leather boot if it makes contact. So, go a size up. Not that I was riding an exciteable horse or anything like that. LOL. The stirrups are worth a try, I can see where they would be beneficial to some riders.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Achy Knees No More! I grew up with the solid metal stirrups, but after I tore my meniscus 9 years ago, I started looking into jointed stirrups. For years I tried the cheap versions; they were definitely better on my knee than the full metal ones, but I would still hurt after riding, especially at shows. A few Christmases ago I got these as a gift and they are AMAZING! I have so much more range of motion in my ankles and my knees have never felt better. I know George Morris isn't a fan (and I'm normally in agreement with him on everything), but these are very good stirrups and haven't messed up my equitation in the least. There will always be people who want to stick with the traditional equipment, but this is a great advancement in stirrups!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Well I'm a fan of flexible stirrups and have used less expensive models. Then I injured the ball of my foot and the pressure from any stirrup pad was excruciating. This stirrup was the only one to cushion my foot. The wide stirrup pads grip boot soles whether dry, dripping with mud, or wet sand. The flex and offset angle are not even noticeable, yet they're definitely working!
    Date published: 2013-02-01
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Expensive Only ridden in them a short time and haven't notice a major difference according to what this product claims to do but the quality is good, they look good and maybe with a year in them I will notice the difference that made them worth the outlandish price.
    Date published: 2012-03-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy Well worth the money! They help eliminate joint pain and help smooth out the ride.
    Date published: 2012-02-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I instantly fell in love when I originally got the 2-way Herm Sprenger irons. Honestly I don't notice much difference between the 2-way and these, but it doesn't change the fact that I'll never go back. As a professional I ride multiple horses per day. My body certainly appreciates the ease of the irons. I have never had a single problem with Herm Sprenger products durability. They are just as wonderful today as they were on day one. Definitely worth the price over the long haul. Sarahjoy Crain, trainer - Independent C Farms

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My ankle pain is gone I have ankle pain from an accident when I was younger, these stirrups have completely taken the pain away, I can always tell when I'm not riding in these, my ankle pain is instantly back, these are not cheat stirrups you have to actually have proper leg position as well as your heels down for these to work, the flexibly in them is amazing, however they do run large and are a bit pricey, that is my only complaint though! I have even accidently left these out in the rain and no rust or stiffness in them, I've had them for two years with no wear on them what so ever they are awesome!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not My Favorite I bought these at Equine Affaire this year for $80 used. I popped them on my dressage saddle and was not an immediate fan, and quickly changed back to the Fillis irons. I've yet to ride in them on the close contact saddle, but I feel that it will help with the loss of feeling I experience in my right ankle on long hacks. But for $80, I couldn't turn them down

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me Being a former junior equitation champion, I like a very firm connection to my irons. I tried these on my dressage saddle and hated them. While they do decrese pressure on your feet and legs, I feel like I am forever reaching down to find my ideal position.
    Date published: 2010-07-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product One of the few products I ever tried (rode in my friend's saddle) and then went right out to get for myself. They are shock absorbers for your ankles, knees and hips. I've had mine for several years and they are as good as new. A bit of an expensive purchase for irons, but you'll be using them for years and years so its really worth it.
    Date published: 2009-11-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Anyone I have used these stirrups for a year and still they look new. I don't clean them everytime I ride. The bottom of the stirrup is very well made. While I wont say these stirrups lock in your feet so they will stick, but I prefer they dont any way.
    Date published: 2009-07-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very happy This stirrups are my first ones, I ever used the ones that has my equine school, but the difference is huge!!!. I really recomend them they are very confortable.
    Date published: 2009-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite! Until now, always had the traditional solid stirrups and never wanted others. Why did I wait so long? Love the feel, the comfort and even getting used to the look! Highly recommend, especially for mature riders with knees and ankles that aren't what they used to be....
    Date published: 2009-06-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Pain! I have to say "ditto" to what everyone else has said! If you ride 10 horses a day or one time a week, these irons are WELL worth the investment. 15 years of riding multiple horses a day has taken its toll on my knees and back. With these irons, my knees aren't swollen at the end of the day and I have fewer trips to the chiropractor. You'll never go back to plain fillis irons!
    Date published: 2009-05-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My knees! I love these stirrups... as I get older, my knees can't take a pounding... once I got these stirrups, my sore knees were gone! They take a few days to get used to, but they are worth it!
    Date published: 2009-02-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than physical therapy My pre-teen daughter was having serious trouble with painful knees, and the doctor sent her to physical therapy. The therapist's "solution" was to stop riding. That's not an option! After reading about these, we gave them a try. What a HUGE difference. No more knee pain, and she doesn't need PT anymore, either. We have let a few ladies at the barn borrow them, and they have bought their own, too.
    Date published: 2007-10-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Stirrups on the Market I absolutely love these stirrups. I have really bad knees and a bad back. These stirrups help take some of the pressure off, especially when I am jumping. I would never go back to ordinary stirrups again.
