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."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent irons Purchased for my daughter and they are really helping her to avoid losing her footing. Very happy that they can so easily be clicked into position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for knee and back pain This is my second pair of these stirrups for my "new" dressage saddle, They are a bit heavy, but I really like how they my position and they eliminate back and knee pain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very heavy Bought these to replace basic jointed stirrups. I have severe knee issues and I thought these would be beneficial. High quality and I like the angle options but they are simply too heavy. Will be returning for a different style.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very heavy and do not help I bought these because even with half chaps I get constant rubs inside my lower legs. These did not help at all! I'm not really sure why, they look like they should help, but they just didn't (yes, I did adjust the top to 90 degrees). But also, they are really heavy! At least twice the weight of normal stirrups, and taller too. If they weren't so heavy I'd use them because why not, maybe they help a little, but they add so much weight I'm not going to use them for no reason. Very disappointing, a huge waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stirrups! Love these stirrups, the ability to rotate them and not have stirrup leather pressure is great. However, I have one complaint/warning.. I realize these stirrups are heavy to keep them in place should you loose one, it's easy to recover. However, they are really heavy, and if you ride without your stirrups a lot, and don't cross your stirrups, they really beat up your ankles. I've started crossing them, but I've always preferred not to, in the event that I want them back quick, I like them down and ready.

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.
