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.

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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'!).

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    MDC Sport Classic Stirrup is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stirrup! I read the reviews on these stirrups and decided to try them. Everything is just as stated. They really did improve my balance and stability with the wide and grippy foot pad. Super easy to pick up a lost stirrup! Love them and glad I spent the money, well worth it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wide footbad is strange Stirrups are such a personal thing, so while these are well made and may be great for some people, they were not for me. I could not get my heels down with the wide footbed. I found myself putting weight into the balls of my feet, and at the sitting trot my feet were bouncing all around. I rode in them only once and knew they weren't for me. When you think logically about a wide footbed, you can see how getting your heel down is an issue!

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, adjustable, balanced and no more pain I purchased this stirrup after searching for months for a stirrup that would alleviate the pain I've begun to experience in the ball of my right foot. It started during endurance rides last year and just kept getting worse. I ride hunters and jumpers, trail ride, as well as doing some endurance and no matter how I moved my foot or adjusted my leathers, I continued to experience pain. Even 20 minutes of flat work was sometimes excruciating. I had stirrups that flexed a bit at the base, they did not help. I tried the super expensive Herm Sprenger Bow Balance Stirrups and, while they are beautifully made and high quality, not only did they not help but they also put too much "spring" in my ankle and I felt like I could no longer keep my heels down. I tried these and within one ride felt better. The nerve pain still exists in general but riding does not make it worse. The wide footbed is comfortable and spreads pressure across a greater area reducing the psi. Additionally the adjustable eye on top allows for less pressure across the shin although you can also set it traditionally if that is your preference. The ONLY downside is they are very heavy especially as compared to my friend's Jin stirrups. With that said, those are over $300 and do not have an adjustable eye on top. I am very happy with these stirrups and they're beautiful, to boot. A little bit expensive but...sadly, so is everything of quality :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic & Incredibly Comfortable Even though I only recently aged out of the junior ranks, I've dealt with muscular back pain as well as ankle and knee strain for several years as a result of an intensive riding schedule. My training has always been classical hunt-seat equitation and my tack reflected it for years. I used stainless steel fills irons without complaint for the sake of tradition, but I decided to try these stirrups while looking for something that could ease my pain. They did not disappoint! I feel more secure than ever and the 45 degree eyelet positions the stirrup beautifully across the ball of my foot. They're heavy enough to feel substantial and I love the metal tread; it doesn't tear up the soles of my boots like cheese graters tend to do. I would highly recommend them. If you intend to use them for hunters or equitation I would opt for the normal-width tread instead of the wide one ju

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect compromise stirrup iron I was looking for a stirrup with a wide, 'cheese-grater' footbed. My daughter's trainer suggested these in the jointed model because she has knee/ankle issues and thinks these are the best. My trainer at home is of a more conservative, classic bent and I knew she wouldn't approve of anything with a non-traditional look, so I went with these and I am super happy that I did. I feel very secure and comfortable in them, and I get fewer criticisms about my leg sliding back over fences, but that could also be my awesome new saddle. So far I prefer the 'neutral' setting. One thing I have noticed is that my trainer tells me at least once in each lesson that I have too little foot in the iron, where I used to have the opposite problem. I'm guessing this is because the footbed is so wide. I show in the jumpers so it's not a problem, but I wonder if they might look odd to a judge in the rated hunters or eq? It would still be worth it in my book to school in these and switch to Fillis irons for showing if your trainer thought these don't look classic enough for the A circuit.
