Slanted, Crooked, or Normal Stirrups

Hi I am looking at potentionally buying walls slanted stirrups. Do the crooked or slanted stirrups help take pressure off of knees and backs?

Yes! Different shapes/different angles help in specific ways. For the most part they alleviate stress on the knees and through the legs. I have them on my trail saddle and my barrel saddle. I love them! (:

Yes! My mom has a pair of walls and they are awesome! No ankle, knee or back pain.

I use regular stirrups but the slanted and crooked stirrups do take pressure off of certain joints and such.
