We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best!! These stirrups are simply the best - the highest comfort combined with well made/solid construction. I have knee problems and being able to dial in the angle helps reduce strain on my knees and hips and supports correct alignment.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have only used these stirrups a few times but so far I really like them. I do think they help me keep my leg in a more correct, relaxed position. I love that they are weighted, and now I just have to remember to rotate them before I mount. All in all I like them - they are a definite step up from plain straight irons.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps with leg position This is my second pair - my daughter stole my first pair! I love these - they help position my leg and also much easier on my knees in the 90 degree position!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far So Good I got these because my toes tend to point out a lot when i ride, and it was causing me to always spur my horse. So my friend and trainer both recommended these. So far, they are pretty dang goo d stirrups. They have helped me keep my toes forward. I do have a once in a while day when my toes point out, but thats probably because my saddle is too big for me (i have a new one being made) I think they are pretty easy to keep on the foot because ive always had a problem with keeping my stirrups. They really help keep my heel down, and if you are someone that tends to have issues loosing and then trying to find your stirrup, i highly recomend these because when you lose them, the stirrup stays where it needs to be and it makes catching them so much easier. Over all i really like these stirrups and think they have help tremendously. I highly recommend these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't ride without!! I don't know how in the world I ever rode without these!! They feel like I'm riding on clouds! I use the 90 degree setting. Even though they are a little pricy, this is one investment you won't regret!!
    Date published: 2012-02-23
    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.
    Date published: 2011-06-13
    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...
    Date published: 2007-07-23
    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! ^_^
    Date published: 2007-03-27
    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.
