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'!).

    Royal Rider Flexible Stirrups is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and not bulky. Lighter in the saddle and easier on the feet. Very good quality.
    Date published: 2016-03-18
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from High Cost, Not Worth It I bought these mostly because I wanted black stirrups, and these got really good reviews. I do not think they are worth the price. I do not like that they are light weight at all, you cannot feel where they are when riding. I do like the wider foot bed than the traditional stirrup, I feel that provides better support. I do not think the flex in them makes any difference.
    Date published: 2015-02-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so light and comfy! I wasn't sure I'd like the look of the stirrups but they feel so great that my worries were put to rest instantly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feet never slip Very comfortable, love the width of foot and flexability. My boots are pretty smooth on bottom and slide with regular rubber treds but the don't budge with these stirrups!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stirrups I bought these for a dressage saddle. I love them! They are very lightweight but I never have to worry about losing them. I have the MDC stirrups on my jumping saddle and I am thinking about replacing them with these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous stirrups! My 12 year old put these stirrups on a few days before a Hunter Show and easily made the transition from basic stirrups to these. She has always fussed with her stirrups and lost them frequently, even with her heels down. The grating and the flex on these stirrups really helped her feel secure. The black color actually blends in for a nicer look in the Equitation ring. I bought a 2nd pair for myself! Love these...Great buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase I am a trainer and have ridden in the Springer jointed stirrups for years. Speaking of the benefits of the jointed stirrups in general I think it makes a huge difference with leg position, I have all but one of my clients in them. For me it really helps my knee pain etc, I notice a huge difference if I ride in someone's saddle who doesn't have jointed stirrups. One of my clients has these stirrups and I really like the look and the lightweight feel, so when it came time to replace my stirrups I went with these. I really am glad I did, I love them. The material of these also seems to hold up better, appearance wise, than the Springer stirrups. Of course I wish all of these stirrups were cheaper but I highly recommend them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Composite Stirrups Out There! I was a little iffy seeing the price on these babies, especially when there are other composite stirrups for about one tenth the price all over the place. But I was very interested in the flexible part not only for the innovative concept of shock absorption but also in case I needed to make an unscheduled emergency dismount I figured that I would have a much better time getting out of these than any other, and though I (thankfully) haven't had a chance to test their ability not to get me into the hospital, they've delivered everything that was promised and more! They're very sleek and stylish (a must for all stirrup irons as it turns out) though I was pleasantly surprised that the actual product didn't match the picture, it shows the "flexi" part being a light brown in contrast to the black of the iron, when it's actually all a nice matte black, you can't even tell that the flexible part is there unless you're right up close. I also noticed an improvement in my knees the first time I rode with them, as well as finding it MUCH easier to keep a proper leg position while in a posting trot/ two point position because of the almost bouncy quality to these irons. All in all, though the price is a little daunting, I now swear by these and recommend them to everyone from my friends to strangers at shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never USE anything else EVER again I was having some knee issues with my non flex stirrups. Bought these and loved how light weight they are also perfect amount of bend and no more knee issues. Don't buy the cheaper version the stirrup pads dont have the same surface area and your foot will slip out. These have a little hang over with grating. This allows for the right amount of contact with your boot sole. Some have to much but these have NEVER marked my saddle.
    Date published: 2013-05-13
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very comfortable! Was concerned that they were too light weight at first, but doesn't affect lower leg position. Very comfortable on the ankles!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever Pricey but worth every $ - first show of year with these stirrups and walked away with championship Wish I had known about these before
    Date published: 2013-01-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stirrups Bought these for my daughter - Apparently these are the current must haves! Anyway, a little on the expensive side but everyone that uses them swears by them so...... They appear to made well and my daughter is very happy with them. SmartPak shipped them quickly and I am very happy with both their pricing and service.
    Date published: 2013-01-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the money I hate writing reviews on products, Amazon constantly harasses me for reviews, but I LOVE these stirrups. I've been riding for fifty years so my body has some wear and tear. I didn't know it was possible to love stirrups but these have me riding pain free. I used to have pain along the ball of my foot, but no more. As a hunter rider one stands in the stirrups often and now I can be comfortable jumping, galloping, posting.....They are light weight but stay in position and I imagine if you loose one while riding it wouldn't smack the horses sides like metal ones do. They also come with 2 choices of screw in pads, metal and black rubber. A must have for the "seasoned" rider.
    Date published: 2012-11-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE! By far the best stirrups I have used. Worth every penny. I had a huge problem keeping my stirrups in place on my foot, these have completely solved the problem. I will never go back to regular irons!

    Date published: 2012-06-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My poor knee! Love these flexible stirrups! I thought I was destined for knee surgery but don't even notice my knee anymore. Worth every cent for that alone.
    Date published: 2012-06-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I broke my ankle 4 years ago and have a plate and screws in it now. When I recently began riding again after a 10 year break my ankle would really bother me and sometimes so painful I couldn't walk. After a few rides in these stirrups I really noticed a difference. Sometimes my ankle gets a little sore but is tremendously better with these stirrups.
    Date published: 2012-05-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I have had two knee surgeries. For the last few years I have had extremely green horses and was primarily jumping 2'6" except for around a month before equitation finals. When I moved my current horse up to 3' and had to jump it once or twice a week continuously my knees started to kill. I purchased these stirrups and have barely had any pain. The other reason I love these is the wider foot bed gives an excellent base of support and has made it easier for me to control my upper body break over. I use these with the plastic foot bed instead of the metal and still have plenty of support. I am keeping the metal pads though in case I have to show in the remnants of a hurricane again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Rider Flexible Stirrups I LOVE these stirrups. Since breaking my ankle last July, I have been having a really hard time getting my heel down and after several minutes of riding I'd be in aching pain. Since I have been riding with these, I have NO pain and I am able to get my heels down without any problems! I love the "cheese grater" grips, which give me a secure grip when my young horse decides he wants to spook at the wind. I would DEFINITELY recommend these to anyone looking to ride pain free who has knee/ankle issues, or to anyone period!
    Date published: 2012-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Rider stirrups I love my new Royal Rider Flexible stirrups. The base is a nice wide platform where my foot stays in place instead of flopping through the stirrup. They have a nice springing action, so that when I am approaching a jump, I am very comfortable in two-point with my legs feeling very soft and flexible. I highly recommend these comfortable stirrups!
    Date published: 2012-03-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from L-O-V-E my stirrups I love these stirrups! My trainer let me borrow her Royal Rider Flexible Stirrups at a horse show when my mom told her I was having ankle and knee pain. It was the first time I had ever used them. I was able to take all of the fences and stay on course with ease and had great standings; a couple of 2nd and 3rd places and a 1st place! For Christmas, my parents bought me these stirrups and I'm very happy with them.

    Date published: 2011-09-30
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from And I thought my knees hurt before... Before springing for a new saddle, I thought I'd buy these stirrups to see if they cure my knee pain that comes hours after riding. After the first ride I was in so much pain immediately getting off the horse that I knew these were not supportive enough, or too flexible. I still recommend because they are great quality, well made stirrups - and they may work for you. However, I wont give these a second chance. Now for the saddle search!
    Date published: 2011-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super secure feeling These stirrups will make you feel more at ease with the amazing grip and flex. Less pressure on ankles and knees and no more losing your stirrrups!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product I love my new stirrups. They are light and very comfortable. I no longer have knee pain after riding. Would highly recommend!
    Date published: 2011-08-01
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic products For 2 weeks I have been riding in my new Royal Rider Flexible Stirrups. They have made an amazing change in my riding, for the better. 9 years ago, I broke my ankle and tore a tendon. 2 years ago I hurt my knee (same leg) the combination of the two caused me great discomfort, stiffness, and pain. Riding was becoming a chore and my horse was always tense. A friend loaned me her flexible stirrup irons to try. Instantly my knee stopped hurting and my ankle flexed. I had to find my own pair when I returned hers. After looking at many different styles from very inexpensive to the most expensive, I chose the Royal Rider because they were not too flexible, but flexed enough to give me relief. Before these stirrups I could ride perhaps 15-20 minutes and canters and trots were for very short periods. Now, I can complete an entire dressage test and canter around a show ring. For those with joint damage, these stirrups might just be what you have been looking for. For those all intact - ride in these so that you can prolong your great rides. SmartPak delivered on time and I am very pleased with this purchase. Worth the money and worth the wait. Thank you!!
    Date published: 2011-07-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These will improve your riding! These are the best stirrups ever! Reasonable price and well worth it! The security and balance is unbeatable. After ankle surgery, the flex is a must! Wouldn't ride with anything else!
    Date published: 2011-05-16
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I tried both these and the standard rigid Royal Rider stirrups. I thought I might like these better since I've had joint issues and people said it helped, but these actually made me feel pain in my knee almost immediately. I also preferred the solid feel of the rigid stirrups.
