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 5 out of 5 by from Best ride yet! I know there is a less expensive version of this type of stirrup, but these are of very nice quality, extremely comfortable while in the tack, and provide a great base of support and are so light weight! I will never go back to conventional stirrups again after riding in the Royal Rider Stirrups.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stirrups I love these stirrups. Good shape, light weight and cheese grinders already installed. They definitely help to keep my foot in place and my saddle is much lighter now. I only own them for about a month but they seem very durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Moved to the Jumper ring and my regular stirrups were WAY to slippery. These are so lightweight, I hardly know they are there but my feet stay PUT. I am comfortable and secure in the saddle over jumps and around tight corners.Very happy with them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love 'Em I love these stirrups. I had been riding in Sprenger stirrups for about 5 years to help with my knee pain from ACL tears and ligament replacement. My trainer finally convinced me to change to the Royal Riders for a better fit to my foot, and I am really glad I did. They are lightweight, and I feel that the wider foot bed gives me more security and support over the jumps. I highly recommend these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting quality irons are worth it After years of riding in school saddles, I finally got my own saddle. My trainer recommended these stirrup irons because they are lighter, high quality, and the material is less prone to breaking than metal. These irons are really nice and feel super secure. I haven't tried the rubber pads yet, but the cheese grater ones help lock your feet in place. Now I feel like I can concentrate on the rest of my riding without having to be distracted by my feet. I also tried the Royal Rider flexible irons, but preferred the solid, locked-in feel of these instead. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love These Very lite weight yet strong. Great grip but you don't feel like your foot is stuck in them. I'm using them for my young fresh gelding. They give some added security :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!! WOW... I really did not expect to like these stirrups because of their weight. However, because of their weight they are VERY secure! They are durable and the cheese grater keeps my foot "locked-in"! Just be aware that the cheese grater does not wrap around on both sides of stirrup. It did take me a few minutes to place them correctly on my leathers so they hung properly with the grates wrapping around the edge that my boot rests on. I rode with my beloved MDC stirrups the other day and could not believe the difference!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive and Effective I bought these irons because flex irons, that i use for ankle pain, tend to bring my leg in front of me. I also was invovled in a bad riding accident a few years ago and have trouble flexing my one ankle which in return makes my foot slip out of the stirrup. I hate the price on these stirrups but they are close to being worth the price. My foot has yet to slip and i haven't had any ankle pain. I have even used these with my boots caked in sand and they still didn't slip. I am also carrying my leg where it needs to be. I have a black jumping saddle so these irons look great with my saddle. I love that they also give you an extra set of treads. I am pleased with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for ankle pain! I have ridden in standard fillis irons ever since I was a pony kid, and never thought much about changing. Recently I was diagnosed with an overuse strain to the peroneal tendons in my ankle, which makes stretching down into my heel very painful. The doctor suggested that I use a stirrup that would flex with my foot, or one that would absorb shock better than steel. Since I started riding in my trainer's Royal Riders stirrups I have experienced NO ankle pain and have been able to ride comfortably for hours. I was concerned about the light weight, but have noticed no difference in feel between a heavy fillis iron and these. The wider foot platform is very comfortable. Though these stirrups are expensive, I am now looking into getting a pair of my own!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! The Royal Rider Stirrups are the best stirrups I've ever owned. Well worth the price! The cheese grater pads are worth their weight in gold and have saved me many of times over drop fences. If you go over fences in the ring or out, these are a necessity!
    Date published: 2008-09-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I'm not one for the stirrups fads, and I'm pretty loyal to my fillis irons. However, I rode in my trainer's saddle the other day, and he has these irons. They're extremely lightweight, and I figured they'd be flimsy and hard to keep my feet in, but I hardly even noticed they were there! My feet were locked in place, and I felt even more secure in these than in my own stirrups. I'm definitely getting a pair!
    Date published: 2008-04-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - super light and flexible LOVE these super-light stirrups, not only because they weigh nothing, but because they also stick to my feet. No more "clanging" when I drop them and ride without. Definitely recommend.
    Date published: 2008-04-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't be beat... These just stick to your feet. Nice wide platform for jumping and the "cheese grater" pads don't budge. I like them so much I am tempted to get a pair for my dressage saddle.
    Date published: 2008-03-17
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stirrups These stirrups are really great. I have a bad ankle and the flex stirrups caused me pain but with these stirrups I have not had pain in my ankles due to the wider pad and I love the cheese grater pads. I recommend these stirrups for anyone who has pain with flex stirrups.
    Date published: 2007-07-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stirrups I've Owned These are by far the best stirrups that I have owned in my life, and they have saved me over a few fences in my life. The cheese grater pads will not allow your feet to move, and I have never lost a stirrup. The Royal Rider Stirrups are also lightweight which almost makes them seem nonexistent when your riding. An awsome product that every overfences/cross country rider should own.
