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 Hunter Classic Stirrup provides high traction and greater support for the traditional or performance minded rider.  The MDC Hunter Classic features an ultra-low profile tread and is practically invisible in the show ring, allowing all the benefits of MDC's advanced tread with the classic lines of traditional stirrups.  The MDC Hunter Classic is an extremely versatile stirrup as it is suitable for all traditional riding disciplines.  The MDC Hunter Classic Stirrups are lighter than most standard stirrups but still has enough weight to allow your stirrups to hang true without the "fly away" effect of overly light stirrups. 

Favorite Features

  • Traditional sides provide the appropriate look for all traditional riding disciplines
  • Ultra-low profile, high traction wide aluminum tread with 45 degree easy retrieval trailing edge
  • Traditional stirrup leather opening
  • Optional traditional width aluminum tread available
  • Lighter weight
  • Ideal for Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Polo, Endurance, and Trail Riding

    MDC Hunter Classic Stirrup is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful WIDE Stirrups! I've been looking for a classy pair of stirrups to replace my old jointed pair and after lots of hunting I found these! I show in the big eq and junior jumpers and wanted to upgrade my stirrups. They were a splurge but from the reviews and pictures I figured they'd be absolutely perfect. However, I missed the memo that the footbed would be SO WIDE! Almost 4 inches! Don't get me wrong, I know that's the style now and I love how they feel, but my trainers think they are too wide for the equitation. While I am definitely keeping them, I have to find replacement treads that are standard size (which do exist through MDC...) I would have appreciated knowing that these stirrups had extra wide treads before hand, though! Or it would have been nice if SmartPak offered those replacement treads too (wink wink). However... That's just one "misunderstanding" issue on my part, so that doesn't take away from these beautiful stirrups!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these stirrups! So much better than the Royal Riders and you can use them in any ring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super These stirrups are great for the Hunter and equitation rings. They have super grip, even in wet weather and have the classic look that can work in all the rings. Very comfortable on the ankles. I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from MDC Hunter Classic Stirrup I ordered these thinking they came with the thinner/narrow stirrup pad but it came with the comfort pad which is wider. I don't feel I can put my weight in my heel as well as with a classic pad but they definitely provide stability. You can buy the narrow stirrup pads for these stirrups but they are not available at SmartPak. The stirrup irons are beautiful, great quality though a bit heavier then the normal traditional stirrup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these Stirrups! I bought these when I needed more traditional looking stirrups for an equitation class. I had loved my other stirrups, and these are my new favorite! My trainer loves them and so do the other boarders at my barn I am so happy I purchased them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice classic looking alternative to composites I normally use the popular composite irons but bought these for a clinic to avoid being called out for using trendy plastic irons - silly, but it happened last time, and I just don't want to live it again. They're really great - heavier weight so you can pick them up easily if you lose them (hasn't happened to me as they are quite sticky) and still provide a good solid feel and grip. Love them. Also since they're not cheese grater, there's no chance they will leave teeth marks on my boots like the others did:(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these Stirrups!! I needed more traditional hunter stirrups, but liked the wide base of my RRs. I bought these and tried them. I love them. They are great support and my foot never slips out of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Nice Overall Hunter Stirrup This is a really nice stirrup for jumping. I had never used a wide grated stirrup before and I am really pleased. It keeps my feet in the correct spots over the jump and it also looks very stylish. My trainer who is used to the normal stirrup rode in my saddle with the stirrups and fell in love. They are pricey but overall i think they are worth it.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
