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

  • Three adjustable settings for everyone's personal preference

Sizing It Up

    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.
