Cashel® E-Z Knees - aligh western stirrup

Cashel EZ Knee Stirrup Corrector 3 In

I got the pair and they are pretty cool (although feels different). I was debating about twisting my fenders, but really hated doing that. This looks like solved the problem with my knees on long rides.

Put those on my synthetic saddle and was very happy (so were my knees). Was going to put some on my leather endurance, but turned the fender instead. May add in the future (as I get older :).

I tried them for a few months, but I guess I just prefer the old fashioned way.

Just curious... How did you turn the fender? I've heard about couple ways to do it, but my concern was to screw the look of the saddle (I have nice leather one).

I oiled my saddle and then turned the fenders and ran a broom stick threw the stirrups. Because I just oiled, left in the sun to help open and absorb the oil (placed on a saddle rack). Otherwise, just turn the fenders and run the broomstick or whatever you have threw the stirrups.

BTW I know threw is not the correct form of the word I want, is it through? Having a brain cramp this morning!

I did a thread about turning Western stirrups a while ago. This the link: Turning Western Stirrups hope it helps.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yes I read that one. I don't mind to try it when my saddle will be older, but it really bothers me to do to the rather new saddle, which was not that cheap (for my money). What if something goes wrong, what if I won't like it? Just too many ifs...

I actually tried that. But instead of broom, I turned and secured in perpendicular position. For 3 months... As long as I took rope away it returned to almost same position - parallel... May be too stiff leather? I don't know....

Val, I did it the day I got it home. I've done that to every saddle I've owned for the past 20 years and it never hurts the saddle.
