Item #12370

Sign in to choose an existing horse

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

From Royal Riders of Italy. Lightweight (only 10 oz) Royal Rider Flexible Stirrups are made of the highest grade polymer composite to incorporate the advantages of shock absorption with superior strength. These stirrups are flexible- increasing shock absorption qualities even more! Comes with interchangeable black rubber and stainless steel "cheese grater" foot pads. Pads screw in to ensure that they do not move! Black.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EURIKA!!!!!! I LOVE these!!! I have only had them a week and I use the cheese grater type pad. I have major problems keeping my left foot in a stirrup (especially at the sitting trot and canter) due to a fused ankle. It is the first time since breaking it I did not loose my stirrup while riding...I ride daily. AND dismounting was not painful (some with past ankle fractures will know what I mean). For safety and comfort so very worth the $$$. Although I don't feel the does something because 99% of the discomfort I had in the past is gone. I am a "Senior" rider and I think anyone with joint issues, regardless of their age, might benefit from these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more knee pain! After purchasing the HS Bow Balance irons I started experiencing severe pain in my knees after riding. I then switched to these irons and the pain went away - didn't even feel any pain the first ride with them. Yay! My trainer commented on my two point position at the trot saying I looked a lot more stable and balanced. I felt like I could stay in the two point at the trot forever when I used to start hurting and get sloppy in my old irons after about a minute. I also love the cheese grater foot pads because my foot does not move or slip at all and these irons are SUPER light weight. These are some great irons!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever Simply the best stirrups I have ever used, and I have used a lot! I have complicated issues and severe pain in my knees and these stirrups have made things so much better! No ankle fatigue, much less knee pain, and I NEVER lose a stirrup! Every student in my barn wants to ride in them - I keep telling them to get their own!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I bought these a year ago, while having extreme pain in my ankles and making it clear that it wasnt cause by a riding fault, i got these because they are so light weight, nice style, and the cheese grater pad, doesnt let my foot slip a bit!A little pricey but so worth it in the end!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've had these for a month now and have been very happy with them. I'm an eventer and broke my leg/ankle badly over the summer, so I bought these hoping they would help the pain and stiffness in my bad ankle. They've definitely made a difference. I ride between 6-10 horses most days, and have had no back pain from them - though I've mostly had them on my dressage saddle, they've travelled back and forth. I like the give they've got on my ankle while jumping and when I get up off the horses' backs - after a few horses in normal stirrups my leg is much more sore than it is with these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pain Gone!!!! I have been riding horses for 8-10 years and I did not discover the Royal Rider Stirrups until I went to BC, Canada. Almost everyone has them. When i would ride in my average stirrups i would get extreme pain in my knees, and when I swiched to the Royal Rider Flexible Stirrups, the pain was gone. I would recommed them to Hunter/Jumpers!! Also when I swiched I saw that my horse was happier because I did not weight my stirrups. LOVE THEM

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extreme Lower Back Pain I purchased these stirrups 4 months ago because of the lightweight and comfortable design that the manufacturer states. Having used them for the past four months, I would experience extreme back pain after riding, and I am only 18! Thinking it was not normal for me to have back pain from riding at such a young age, I asked my trainer what she thought it was from. Guess what, her and another client of her's had the same back problems from these stirrups, one to the extent she had to go to a chiropractor. As soon as I switched to the other jointed stirrups my back pain miraculously disappeared! I would not recommend these stirrups to anyone who doses not want to suffer backstabbing pains every time after riding, and in the mornings after getting out of bed. Definitely would not recommend to Hunter/Jumpers like me, because the shock absorption in these stirrups is non-existent, and that’s where I think my back pain was coming from. On a good note, my foot never slipped out of the stirrup ONCE, thats why I gave a rating of 2 and not 1.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever! I loved these stirrups so much! They are lightweight and comfortable. They are great to use riding without stirrups and lunging because they don't bang the horse in the side. Loved them!
