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 Stirrups is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My foot doesn't move! Love these irons, my feet don't move when I'm riding, and they are super light. Will most likely buy another pair in the future! I bought the gray ones, they are lovely!
    Date published: 2016-04-14
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from These do the job! These are great. I am a bunion sufferer which makes it difficult to keep my foot from sliding into the stirrups. The wide foot bed and "cheese grater" base have really helped! I do wish they were a little heavier, though.
    Date published: 2016-01-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit! I tried the 4 3/4 Royal Rider Flexible stirrups and they were too big. I tried the 4 1/14 Royal Rider regular stirrups and they were too small. The 4 3/4 regular ones fit just right! Love them....and I don't miss the flex.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stirrups I use these on both my dressage and jumping saddles. Super lightweight, provides wonderful extra grip, and a nice subtle look. Expensive, but well worth it. Clean up well and last!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stirrups! I wasn't sure how I would like these stirrups, but decided to give them a try. They are so light, and I love that the footbed is wide. They also come with the "cheese grater" pads so my foot never slips. I have been using these for about a month, and I have to say I just love them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stirrups Had a pair in black and needed grey for equitation classes. So comfortable and you will never lose a stirrup again.
    Date published: 2015-08-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sticks like glue! Best non-slip stirrups I've ever used. Really grabs your boot and keeps the stirrup from wrapping around your ankle should you compromise your leg weight.
    Date published: 2015-03-03
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I think these are too light After riding in these Ive noticed that I don't feel as supported as I did with the heavier stirrups
    Date published: 2014-11-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like these So I just recently transitioned from the hunter ring to jumpers, and my beloved Herm Sprenger Bow Balance stirrups just weren't cutting it anymore. Don't get me wrong, those stirrups are awesome. But not when jumping higher than 2'9". Something that is going to keep my foot securely planted in place is what I was looking for and these definitely deliver.
    Date published: 2014-08-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these stirrups! I bought these stirrups for the wider footbed and grip factor. I wasn't disappointed! I feel very secure in the saddle and over fences with these stirrups
    Date published: 2014-04-30
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super light These stirrup really keep my feet in place. Never lose my stirrups anymore 
    Date published: 2013-12-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stirrup The cheese grater feature makes this a great stirrup and makes it impossible for your foot to slip when it's wet or muddy. The only downside is I prefer the traditional look of the Fillis iron with stainless steel. Make sure the stirrup is hung correctly (in the right direction) so you don't scratch your saddle.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helped My Position I really wanted to give these a 5 because they've been so helpful in keeping my feet steady. With steady feet, I find the rest of my position is better too, My seat and hands are more independent. The only reason I gave them a 4 is that I think the price was too high for plastic stirrups. Otherwise, they're great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these stirrups!!!!!! Went to my 1st rated horse show... just put these on my saddle with no trial...my feet stuck like glue!Wish I had started with these, may have saved me from some nasty falls.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great jump stirrups These are nice and light and the grates help keep one's foot nicely set.
    Date published: 2013-07-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great traction! I bought these stirrups for my jumping saddle. I love them! Your feet will stay put! As an added bonus, they are really light weight.
    Date published: 2013-06-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice irons! The cheese grates are perfect for extra grip on the irons and these make it easier to keep my irons in place over jumps. They also take away and leg/joint discomfort!
    Date published: 2012-11-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product design and size - if you are an adult rider with a small and narrow foot the 4 1/4 width size is great. Most stirrup widths are too wide for my foot. This size has kept my foot from slipping in and out of the stirrup.
    Date published: 2012-11-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grip with these stirrups My 9 year old gets great grip with these cheese grater style stirrups. Additionally they look really good with her Beval saddle.
    Date published: 2012-11-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Rider Stirrups Love them. My 9yr old is a petite child but these fit her wonderfully. Great with both saddles and really help her keep her feet planted.
    Date published: 2012-10-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Stirrups I used to ride with expensive jointed stirrups. My trainer recommended I drop the jointed with a traditional stirrup. I had loved my jointed stirrups and wasn't sure if I wanted to switch. I bought the same stirrups my trainer had and I am so glad I did! I wish I made the switch earlier, it has not only helped my leg position but my feet feel very secure in these stirrups.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Stirrups- I am a dressage rider. I started to have arthritis in my big toes. Very painful. I had the UMS 6 Stirrups and they were good for awhile but the pain came back. I purchased these and also the flex Royal Riders to compare. I did not like the flexible ones and returned them but these are very good at reducing the pain because they are wide and give more support to my feet. I have only used them a few times but so far my feet feel better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stirrups Ever! I had been lusting over these for a while and I am so glad to finally have them! I have always ridden with the Herm Sprengers but tried these out once when I rode in a friend's saddle. Love the wide foot bed and grippy grater, especially in the fall/winter when the bottom of your boots are wet. Never lose my irons, and they don't bang against my horse when I do no stirrup work like the heavy metal ones.
    Date published: 2012-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feet won't move Love the grip. Yet to be seen if they chew through my shoes. But I feel so secure. At least yiu can change out pads if you dont like cheese graterWas a long time fan of older heavier but love these. Won't got back to jointed. Love them.
    Date published: 2012-08-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Stirrups but..... These will make your foot stay put! And they are very lightweight. But for me, I didn't like the look of them with my dressage saddle. I prefer the classic irons instead. But definitely worth getting if you don't mind the black color.
    Date published: 2012-06-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Suprised I purchased these not expecting something overly spectacular (my coach asked me if I was crazy buying stirrups for this price), but I was pleasantly suprised with the difference I felt when I rode; they feel so much more stable ! My coach even noticed how much solid my leg and heel looked and after riding in them decided she wanted a pair for herself.
    Date published: 2012-05-09
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from holds foot great I love the grater stirrups. They really help to hold my foot in place. Well worth buying.
    Date published: 2012-04-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! These are the best! I love how light they are, and your foot doesn't move one but once you put your foot in and your heel down. I feel like they have really improved my lower leg stability.
