Stirrups...

I have a pair of the herm sprenger bow balance stirrups.. they're blue in color. Anyways, i'm thinking about showing and I wanted to know if those were acceptable in the show ring, or do I need to have regular stirrups?

well, they are in the hunter, jumper, equitation, or dressage ring!

I see quite a few of them, even at the rated shows. (well, maybe even more at the rated shows!)

ok.. Would a walk trot, or walk trot canter class be classified as equtation, or would that just be a flat class?

Hmm.. I think i'll keep my regular stirrups just in case. Rather not place for something I or the horse did, rather than because I had blue stirrups.

Either way they're ok. There are almost no rules about stirrups. :)

Most shows will follow the rules of USEF, even if they aren't directly affiliated. So you can get always double check on their website. Go to USEF.org under Rules and Governance. Find your discipline and filter through the pages. :)

No problem! I had to double check to see if I could use my hinged HS stirrups (the non bow balance kind) in a dressage show so I actually had to look up that very question! :)

oh cool!

I think i'll hang onto my other stirrups just in case.. I rather have the option of changing them the day of the show, rather than wishing I had the old pair.
