Item #16038

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

Say "Goodbye!" to losing a stirrup while riding, these pads provide superior grip for added security. 

You can easily attach the Super Comfort Iron Pads to your own stirrup irons and they are guaranteed to stay firmly in place. These unique Super Comfort Iron Pads are made of treaded rubber which wrap around your entire iron, thereby eliminating foot to steel contact that often causes a rider to lose their stirrups. 

Favorite Features

  • Reduces impact to help alleviate added stress on the knees
  • Helps keep heels down
  • Easily attaches in less than 5 Minutes
  • Helps improve body and leg position
  • Treaded rubber lasts for years of wear

Made in USA

Sizing It Up

    Super Comfort Iron Pads is rated 4.8969 out of 5 by 97.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy These pads keep your feet from slipping and are comfortable. I used to have the cheese grater pads and switched to these. I love my new pads!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wasn't expecting these to be so great! I recently purchased these to put on my jump saddle - I have composite stirrups with a wide tread and was worried these might not fit, but they did. I rode in them cross country the next day and was SO impressed - my feet did not once slip from the stirrups, my heels stayed down much easier, they have a great grip and they provide very good shock absorption too! More expensive than your traditional fillis pads or even cheese-graters, but I definitely plan on buying another pair to put on my dressage saddle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stirrup Pads! These stirrup pads are fantastic. Great grip without tearing up the soles of your boots like cheese-grater pads. Cheese graters always left me with a sore back and sometimes numb or ouchy feet. These stirrup pads are great and reduced my back pain and feel great. Since they wrap around the stirrup if they do happen to slip you can still catch traction on the edge. They can trap dirt if its really muddy but just quickly brushing them off with a horse brush solves that easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy These!! Dont bother buying the expensive stirrups with the cheese grater pads. These pads are awesome!!! I have an ankle problem and always losing my one stirrup even with the cheese grater pads and i did not once loose my stirrup in these. The do a great job with shock absorbing as well. Easy to assemble too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Product These Comfort Iron Pads met and exceeded my expectations. My feet feel more secure in the irons + the cushy feeling under my boot encourages my heels to stay down. Only one very small negative comment: the straps used to fasten the bottom edges together are difficult to attach and sometimes come apart. I highly recommend these pads.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't do without I've had these on my stirrups for the past five years and could not go without. Perfect for anything from pony hunters to Level 4 jumpers. Its impossible to loose your stirrups during a course with these. A must buy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daughter loves these My daughter says these prevent her boots from slipping on the irons. They need to be replaced as they wear down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A+++ I've had these for 2 years now and they've been a great buy. They are very comfortable and provide a secure fit between the boot and stirrup. I haven't lost a stirrup since having these, and I recommend these for every rider!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! I have added these pads to my irons and am very happy with them. With the extra grip, I no longer lose my stirrups. I also like the extra width it adds to the base of my irons. I was worried that they wouldn't be safe to use, but I have no problem taking my foot out when needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They did their job! I love these pads! I was wary of them until I first rode in them.. they are amazing! I never think about losing my stirrup when I sit the canter or in a middle of a course! It's not a large difference, but I never lose my stirrup. It didn't change my achy knees (which happens only when I ride hard- really hard!) but that wasn't expected. It did it's purpose!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfort Iron Pads Tried a pair of my friend's and I loved them so I had to get my own. Comfortable and keep my foot in place. I love them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Impressed with the Super Comfort Pads I was actually given a pair of these pads many, MANY, years ago when a local vendor was trying to market them. It wasn't until recently I realized that after all these years, I have not replaced them or done anything to them since the day she put them on my saddle and the tread is just as new as the day she did! These things have just lasted forever and give great stability in the saddle. At first I thought they were a little silly looking, because they wrap AROUND your irons rather than sitting in your irons - but it's worth it and now I don't even notice it. I've shown in them and schooled in them without comment from very conservative trainers, so I think it was just my being wary at first of something new. I highly recommend them to anyone, especially if you ride often!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a Huge Difference The Super Comfort Iron Pads had such glowing reviews, I had to try them. I didn't find them to make a noticeable difference in either traction or cushioning. They are also really big and bulky on the stirrup iron, and tend to collect more sand and dirt than regular treads.
    Date published: 2009-07-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HIGHLY RECOMMEND! These stirrup pads are fantastic! I use to lose my stirrup fairly often, now, it doesn't move. Your foot feels more secure in the stirrup with these pads as opposed to regular stirrup pads. They also provide additional cushioning, which is wonderful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're tired of slippery stirrups Buy these pads! I'm glad I bought them with all the rainy horseshows I've been to this season. They offer excellent grip.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny The Super Comfort Iron Pads are great! I would not want to ride without them.
    Date published: 2009-05-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more lost stirrups Even on rainy days, these stirrup pads stay "sticky". In an emergency situation, the stirrups are not so sticky that your foot gets stuck. Also, these stirrup pads do not scratch your leathers the way the "cheese grater" pads do. I love this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The name doesn't lie! My sandpaper pads were worn out so I went ahead and ordered a set of the super comfort pads. I'm really pleased with them - not only are they really grippy, but they feel great and my feet don't get fatigued nearly as fast!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME. Try these and they will prove they are worth the price. I wasn't a believer until I tried them on someone else's saddle...makes losing a stirrup nearly impossible and cushions your foot.
