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

These wide-based stirrups are uniquely designed to reduce stress on the body and increase safety. Based on an Italian design, the MDC Super Sport Stirrup brings offers a combination of features not currently available from any one stirrup manufacturer.

A solid base is available on the MDC Sport Classic Stirrup.

Favorite Features
  • Three preset stirrup positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees, allowing you to position the stirrup according to your personal preference and resulting in reduced stress on your ankles, knees, hips and back.
  • World-class flexible hinge - a feature rarely found on wide base stirrups
  • Wide base, non-slip aluminum pad provides 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
  • The look and strength of stainless steel, blended with the lightness of polished aluminum, the metal finish maintains an elegant and traditional look in the show ring


Non-slip aluminum pad is 2 1/2" from toe to heel.

    MDC Super Sport Stirrup is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the wider base I am a novice dressage rider with a weak right hip. I love how the wide base gives support yet the slight flexibility doesn't not jar the leg/hip.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prefer MDC Ultimate over Super Sport These are excellent built stirrups. They did not work for me because the smallest size was 4.5. I did give them a try but they were way too big. I didn't think a 1/4 " would matter. I wanted to get MDC stirrups because you can set the angle. After riding in Herm Sprenger this are far better. I exchanged them for the Ultimate 4.25, which I love!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from High Hopes for these, but product fell short... REALLY wanted to love these stirrups - design sounded promising. I ride 6 times a week, sometimes multiple horses, and due to some arthritis in my feet I tend to get stiff ankles and sore soles after I ride. But after trying these irons I am returning them for the following reasons: 1). Interior stirrup height too tall for safety - I wear a ladies size 7 paddock boot and my entire foot including the base of the heel can fit through the stirrup opening. 2).I couldn't find a benefit to the hinged pivot - maybe because my stirrup leathers are well broken in and have a natural twist in leather already. 3) I found the wider tread base to be quite comfortable, but found that it changed my lower leg balance. I can certainly see how this wider base would be nice on a trail. I liked the slight downward angle on the back side of the tread. Probably could get used to the changed leg balance, but given all the other issues, sending irons back for something different.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved position & pain relief I didn't notice it in the first few rides but after a week all of the tightness in my hips and knees after rides was gone! While I strive to stay in shoulder hip heel alignment, I find it much easier to stay ib this position even when I'm getting tired after a long ride.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ripped up the bottoms of my boots This is almost a year to the day that I had them shipped to me, and with steady use at least twice a week. They might not be exactly "cheese grater" bottoms, but they will wear out the ball of your foot on your boot like crazy! My feet still haven't slipped out of the stirrup at all- which is great, I'm just sad that I need to get my boots repaired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent base of support! I have MDC stirrups but have started having more issues with foot and knee pain when riding. I purchased the MDC Super Sport Stirrup in hopes to achieve that. I have been very happy with them and I could tell from the first ride! The wider base of support is great and the flexible joint is a necessity for me! I want them for all my saddles now!
    Date published: 2015-02-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these irons!! Totally worth the money! These irons have helped my riding tremendously, and I no longer have hip and knee pain.
    Date published: 2015-01-20
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for knee pain I needed help picking up my sturips and these with the off set top are very helpful! The wide footbed keeps your leg secure and and is comfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra money! I often find myself fidgeting and fighting with my stirrups to find a comfortable position. This has completely stopped since purchasing the MDC Super Sport stirrups. I absolutely love the wide, supportive base. I also love the stirrups pads, they do not hurt my feet like the cheese grater stirrups but still provide extra grip. The hinge is different than I expected but a concept that works well. While is rotates and swivels, you have to 'click it' into place depending on the angle you want. It is not a free moving swivel. After riding in a friend's saddle who had these stirrups, I purchased my own. I typically would not have spent the extra money on stirrups but these are so comfortable and well made I am sure they will be worth the investment long term.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A recommendation from a barn buddie Decided to spend the extra money for a quality stirrup and it has made a difference .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stirrups! I bought these stirrups to see if they would help with ankle fatigue on fifty mile endurance rides. Although the ride season hasn't started yet, I have been doing a lot of conditioning in them, and they have really helped.
    Date published: 2014-01-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't foxhunt without these! I got myself some plain, inexpensive flexible stirrups. The flex helped, but I was still having pain in my knee where I had my meniscus removed. It was like the supporting muscles in my knee were being fatigued by the slight pressure to turn a regular stirrup outwards and it would be sore for a day or two after a long, hard hunt. I borrowed these and was shocked at the difference having not just the flex, but also the extra wide foot bed and the adjustible tops made to my foot and knee comfort. To top it all off, I lost a stirrup doing a complicated ditch crossing onto a road and was able to slip my foot back in a lot faster. I can't recommend them enough, they are worth every penny. As my friend with restless leg syndrome said, "I spent a lot of money and time on a new saddle and new boots to make my legs not hurt, when changing my stirrups was all I needed to do."

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from ALMOST Perfect... I have had these stirrups for a year and a half now. After ten hours of riding in them at a recent endurance ride, my feet would eventually lose some sensation... feel that a closed-cell foam pad on them might help. Need to addess this before the next endurance ride - hopefully the Cashel foam pads will fit these. Otherwise, they're fab for shorter (3-4 hr) conditioning rides. They've helped with my knee/ankle pain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! These stirrups are amazing. Very well made and Comfortable. Love them!
    Date published: 2012-04-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these stirrups! I absolutely love these stirrups. I have been having ankle pain when riding in my jump saddle, and these stirrups completely solve the problem! My leg remained solid and relaxed, pain free! I tried them on my dressage saddle, also... and I really enjoyed the results. I set them on the 90 degree setting, and that paired with the super grip really allowed my leg to fall naturally around my horse. In normal stirrups, my heel tends to come up when I apply my leg. Not so with the super sports! Looks like I might need 2 pairs!
    Date published: 2012-03-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long to get these! I have always had pain, tension or stress in my ankles, knees and hips riding. I would brace in my stirrups and it would cause me to lock up. I figured why get these when I just need to stop bracing... boy was I wrong! When I rode in these stirrups it felt like my legs where feathers and I finally found alignment without brace in my body. Best most comfortable ride I have ever had! Worth every penny and so upset I didn't get them sooner and saved my ankles all the trouble they had before. I love the wide pad (thought I wouldn't) and I love, love, love the jointed action in the stirrups. It really saves my ankles and the twisting top helps my knees and toes point straight and free.
    Date published: 2012-03-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They Work! I've been dealing with the last two toes on my right foot going numb while riding for awhile now. I tried the stirrups, and no more numbness! And to top it off, my hips didn't hurt after my ride! I didn't rate durability since I just got them, but they seem very sturdy.
    Date published: 2011-11-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb I just had to ride that day I received them in the mail & my knees, ankles felt great! It was a 2.5 hr ride. They look very well constructed, solid, but I only rode with them 3 times & didn't want to give them a 5 star durability unless I had them longer
    Date published: 2011-10-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stirrup iron ever tried! I tried these on my friend's horse and loved them. I felt stable and they are really comfort able. Just purchased a pair and I highly recommend!
