Why We Love This

The MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are a revolutionary new stirrup design that positions your stirrups where you want them. You select any of three preset stirrup positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees. The preset angle of the MDC Ultimate Stirrups improves leg, calf and foot position, relieves pressure on hips, knees and ankles, and reduces leg burns. The MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are easily retrievable, making your performance more precise and much safer.

MDC Intelligent Stirrups® have earned top praise, including Horse Journal Magazine Product of the Year and endorsements by many top riders including the entire US Dressage Team, Amy Tryon and Margie Engle. WEG Show Jumping Silver Medalist Beezie Madden says "They're simply amazing!" and Debbie McDonald says "I would recommend these stirrups to anyone at any level of riding."

Rubber protected hinged bottom. Black or Stainless Steel.

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 Ultimate Stirrups is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 78.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing I am 68 years old and have knee and back issues. These stirrups have helped me so much. My horse has a very springy trot which hurts my knees but with these stirrups I don't even think about my knees. I use them in the 90 degree angle. They really are great and I never write reviews.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stirrups I bought these a couple of weeks ago & from my first ride I felt hip pain relief I no longer feel stiff after riding & I feel more relaxed down my legs & am able to give more precise clear aids to my boy I wish I would have purchased them sooner.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I bought these to put on my new dressage saddle. I ride a reiner and have been for the last three years exclusively in a Western saddle, but figured why not branch out a bit. During my first ride in my new dressage saddle with normal fillis irons, I kept having this problem where I wouldn't "lose" my stirrup, necessarily, but the stirrup would find its way from the ball of my foot to the arch, essentially in the middle of my foot only stopped by my boot heel. I was really frustrated, I hate fighting with equipment and it seemed like no matter what I did, I could not stop the stirrup from creeping back towards my heel (I do know how to ride with my heels down). So I figured I would try something a little different to the traditional irons and rode in these for the first time last night. I don't have any knee/joint pain yet but I did experience the leg burns with the traditional irons, and I can say that after one ride with these at the 90 degree angle, that is gone, and I seriously appreciate the fact that the stirrup is mostly always "open" to your foot if you lose it. I still experienced the semi-lost stirrup though, which is disappointing. I have a feeling that just takes time with a different riding style and learning new muscle memory, so in that way, I don't know if a $200 stirrup was worth it since it didn't solve the problem, but I will be keeping these because I think overall they will be more comfortable and I do love the black look against my black saddle. I like that the "jointed" part doesn't feel too jointed and I don't have a fear of over-extending my heel and causing injury down the road. So I would say overall these are a great stirrup but they didn't necessarily work miracles on my stability issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big difference I bought these a few weeks ago and noticed right away the difference. It didn’t take long to get used to and the strain on my knee was reduced. I like the heavier feel underneath my foot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for joint pain I love these stirrups! I just bought them from a friend at the barn and they immediately alleviated the ankle pain I used to get when riding in standard stirrups. I never feel like I'm going to lose my stirrup and my leg is so much more secure than with the standard flexi-stirrups.
    Date published: 2018-11-19
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ankle Pain I had been having some issues because one of my ankles is much more flexible than the other and I have difficulty keeping my more flexible ankle and foot properly aligned. I bought these stirrups to help alleviate knee and ankle pain, but they actually ended up making it worse for me personally. If knee pain is an issue for you because of the impact landing over jumps can put on them, I would recommend these stirrups. However, if you tend to put your heels too far down because you overflex your ankles, I recommend sticking with a solid, inflexible stirrup iron because these have a lot of give in them and may allow your heels to sink even deeper, causing more pain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cannot imagine riding without them! I might have reviewed these when I purchased mine originally, but even if I did, I love these so much I thought it would be good to provide a long-term use update. After almost 6 years of regular use, these stirrups are still in fantastic shape. I don't even think anymore about the knee and hip pain that had become part of everyday (pre-MDC Ultimate Stirrup purchase) riding. I truly cannot imagine not using these stirrups for the rest of my life. They show no signs of needing replacement anytime soon, which makes them a great long-term investment in pain-free riding. If/when one day they do eventually wear out, I won't blink an eye before immediately replacing them. I may not even wait that long....the black ones sure look sharp!
    Date published: 2018-05-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good concept I've been using the stirrups for about three weeks. I don't have any knee problems, but was looking for something that might just make my ride more comfortable overall. I have to say the design and quality are good and concept of this stirrup makes sense but I have not felt a huge difference either way. I will continue to use them anyway.
