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'!).

Why We Love This

The MDC Comfort Stirrups® are a revolutionary new stirrup design that positions your stirrups where you want them. You select any of three preset stirrup positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees. The preset angle improves leg, calf and foot position, relieves pressure on hips, knees, ankles, and back, and reduces leg burns. The MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are easily retrievable, making your performance more precise and much safer.

MDC Comfort Stirrups® have earned top praise, including Horse Journal Magazine Product of the Year and endorsements by many top riders including the entire US Dressage Team, Phillip Dutton, and Margie Engle. WEG Show Jumping Silver Medalist Beezie Madden says "They're simply amazing!" and Debbie McDonald says "I would recommend these stirrups to anyone at any level of riding."

    MDC Comfort Stirrup is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stirrups I purchased this because my ankles tend to hurt when I ride and I also tend to point my toes out a lot & I found that using these stirrups did help both those problems significantly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love these stirrups to jump in! If your a rider like me who tends to have their toes pointed out and have tried everything to keep them straight try these. First time I jumped with them I, my trainer and I noticed a huge difference in my position! My horse was much more relaxed going over the jumps since I wasn't jabbing her with my spurs! I can now pick up my stirrup irons in a matter of seconds and not have to stop and look down to see if my foot is in the right place.I wasn't happy using them with my dressage saddle, but for jumping they are a dream! It was worth every penny! Test ride in them and you will notice a difference too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the $$$ This stirrup is worth every penny for comfort. I waited a long time to justify the $$ and wish I hadn't waited. For dressage riders, helps to get your thighs on and rotated inward. Also, can't be beat for comfort; these relieve alot of the reciprocal stress on the knee and lower leg that comes from the traditional leather/iron attachment.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from quite disappointed! I recently broke my leg near my knee and I purchased these stirrups to help reduce stress on my knee. The first thing I was disappointed about was that the tread was grey instead of white. While doing this review it shows a grey tread, but I never saw grey before, I saw white. When I started using them I didn't notice any kind of difference, and I actually lose my stirrups a lot more when using them! I ride dressage, hunter-jumper and eventing, and even though I had broken my leg, I was riding 7 horses a day before the injury and came back into shape quickly, so my leg position is as strong as it was before. I just haven't noticed a difference in the stress on my leg, and I'm losing my stirrup a lot more with them. Pretty expensive for what seems to be regular weighted stirrups...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! I wouldn't wanna ride without these! I can't ride without em. I can ride for only so long in traditional stirrups before my ankles start to hurt. I could ride all day in these and feel fine. A bit pricy, but worth EVERY penny! ^_^

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahhh!!!! That's what your knees and hips will say when you first ride in these! I am very impressed with how well these stirrups release the stress in my leg - from my hip to my ankle. It is much easier to keep my leg in the correct position. I use these in the 90 degree position on my jumping saddle and in the 45 degree position on my dressage saddle.
