Need help mounting that especially tall steed before you?...

Found these nifty things on eBay. Haven't bought em. Don't know who sells em. But boy do they look tempting. Thought I might pass em on, maybe it's just what you've been looking for. Lol... Without further ado...

I have these!! I can't remember the maker, but they are German high quality and If anyone really wants to know I will look tomorrow. They are totally brilliant and better than any other stirrup extender I've ever seen.

If they are still up on eBay, buy them while you can?..

They also make you 5" lazy

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Ps ah! Just taken another look. They are not exactly the same - mine are hinged, those look retractable. I take back my recommendation as mine are so great, and the design works so well... I would be cautious with anything else.

Haha, yeah you're probably right. I've never seen anything like these or the ones your describing. Would you mind posting a picture when you get the chance? I'm very curious about them, as I am relatively vertically challenged
