I'd actually never heard of those, but they look nice. I had just seen other brands of angled stirrups and wondered about them. Hopefully someone out there has some experience with angled stirrups...?

I may invest in a pair when I get my tax return. I always drop my stirrups at anything faster than an average trot, mostly because my feet do not angle the same way as my stirrups when I'm riding. I think the angled ones might help. I've been wanting to try them for a while anyway. It'd be a huge bonus if they helped with my dumb knee.

I know the team ropers seem to love them. But I have never ridden in them.

Another option is Nettles Handmade stirrups (www.nettlescountry.com) They do have an offset pr too, but they are made out of 6 layers of wood - they GIVE. I had both my knees injected a week ago & was almost afraid to ride - they feel great in my Nettles! I have the Halfbreeds - the 2" on one saddle & the 3" on the other. The one w/the 3" is my new Martin Crown C & I especially wondered with it being a new saddle, but no problems! And they are beautiful to boot!

Walls Stirrups Twisted Slanted Aluminum

Nope these...I SWARE by them..they are TWISTED and SLANTED. I couldn't ride for more than 15 minutes in my old saddle before my knees would get sore and I would have to take them out and stretch them...now I can go hours with out feeling the need to stretch out...They are spendy I won't lie..but they are more than worth it..I was actually recommended by someone on here to try them... and I am SOOOO glad I did. I wont go back to regular stirrups

I used to have the Walls Slanted too - but I always felt "too restricted" in them - & when stepping off my big mare, my foot would get hung up many times. They are too tight for me. Plus, I HATED the aluminum stain on all my jeans from where the stirrups laid on them, hated the sore shins from them when carrying my saddle & they'd bang my legs, hated the aluminum stains on all my boots too. They did help my knees but still not as much as the Nettles, plus I don't have any of those issues w/the Nettles. :)
