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

Based on an Italian design, the MDC Sport Line brings to the market a combination of features not currently available from any one stirrup manufacturer. MDC Sport Stirrups offer the look and strength of stainless steel, blended with the lightness of polished aluminum. The bright metal finish maintains an elegant and traditional look in the show ring. MDC strongly believes that stirrups that adjust to your body are better stirrups, and MDC Sport Line features three preset stirrup positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees.

The MDC Sport Classic comes with a solid base, for those who prefer a more traditional look and feel in their stirrup. They feature a wide base, non-slip aluminum pad, which provide a secure grip, but are less aggressive than “cheese grater” pads, which can cut boots, breeches, saddle leather and do not easily release in the event of a fall. A hinged base is available on the MDC Super Sport Stirrup.
Favorite Features

    MDC Sport Classic Stirrup is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ankle saver! I have a VERY bad ankle (bad break many years ago) and felt relief from both the extra large pad footprint as well as the stirrup hanging much easier to retrieve tho now I'm not dropping my stirrups nearly as much! I tried the extra flex type in another brand so I already knew they created way more stress on an already weak ankle and therefore knew to choose the non flex style! I love these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HUGE difference A few months ago I sprained my ankle really bad. Those who had sprains know the pain of unstable ankles and that horrible "popping" sensation when the joint gives. I have tried ACE wraps to my ankle under my boots, athletic tape around my ankle, even an ankle brace stuffed under my boot ever so tightly. Never failed that my ankle would still give everytime I would ride. The moment I would start posting my ankle fails. It's a major set back--almost discouraging. My trainer suggested these and I was skeptical because well every stirrup claims the best features. But reviews seemed to touch on an issue I had--bum ankles. Let me just say THESE ARE BEST!!!! It made me forget about my ankle. I don't feel my ankle instability at all. Posting, cantering, and jumping are very easy on my ankle now. Takes off so much pressure that my ankles feel so soft. I also have "weaker" lower legs so they aren't as still as they can be. These SIGNIFICANTLY improved my leg position. I thought maybe my ankle may just have been getting better and my lower leg may have improved. I switched saddles with the fillis irons a few weeks after only using MDC-- oh my gosh did I suffer. I felt so insecure. My ankle gave and gave and gave. I stopped five minutes after posting and asked my trainer if I can switch irons really quick. She laughed and said to try a lesson without those and see how I do. Needless to say I had a great lesson, but could have cried from the pain in my bad ankle. It kept popping. My legs were waving at the world. THESE IRONS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I'm someone who loves to stay within budget but--Worth every penny, get them if you have weak ankles or struggle with lower leg position/heels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I tried two other types of MDC stirrups and these are the best. You have the option of 3 different angles which make them really easy to use. I highly recommend these after riding in Herm Sprenger 4 Way stirrups for years these give you the best support and comfort hands down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stirrups ever!!! I've been wanting these stirrups for a while now. They're pretty expensive so I waited for them to go on sale.... These are the greatest stirrups ever!!! I absolutely love them. The wide foot pad is really comfy on my knees. I usually ride in 4 1/4 they don't make that size so I got the 4 1/2 and they fit great.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly Strange – Nicely Constructed I have been eyeing these over for a couple of years . . . so I thought it would be the perfect stirrup. Upon receiving them I found them Nicely Constructed; however, extremely large in height and just plain awkward in use. My horse is large and they also looked awkwardly large on him as well. I really wanted to love these but I just could not especially for the price. Disappointed I sent them back.
