exercise iron pads?

So on my quest to buy irons for my new saddle I accidentally bought exercise irons instead of regular(I didn't know there was such a thing lol) These are the ones I bought D. A. Brand Stainless Steel Exercise Irons Stirrups Horse Tack Equine | eBay The opening where you put the pad is smaller then traditional irons I guess because none of the pads I have will sit flush against the iron. I've been using them like that since they are secure, it's just awkward to not have it flat. Does anyone know where I can get pads to fit them? The ebay seller offered to exchange them for regular irons but I'd hate to be without irons for however long it would take to send them back and get the new ones. I'm hoping I can find pads that will fit, otherwise I may just try to shave some of the rubber off the pads I have to make them fit(although I may accidentally destroy the pads in the process ) I'll take some pics later just incase it isn't clear what I mean

They look like standard PSOBs (Prussian Sided Open Bottom) to me - normal English-type irons. You ought to be able to get treads pretty much anywhere. The only difference may be if the footplate is narrower (less metal would make them a tad cheaper to produce), but even then I'd have thought a rubber tread could be trimmed.

If the company say they're made specially for them, they're pretty poor if they don't do matching treads. The roughing of most stainless irons is pathetic.

Hope you find some :)

Does the eBay seller also sell the pads? As it says they are made custom for them they may have custom sized pads that you can purchase? Annoying I know but maybe the route to go? Because as far as I know most pads are all the same size.

Otherwise I think your other option is to just try to cut some of the rubber away.

Good luck, that's the problem with buying from eBay, usaully a great but not always 100% what you want

The seller doesn't sell pads nor does she know where I can get any to fit I'm going to post some pics before, it's not so much the size of the pad, it's the bottom that hold the pad in that is too wide. I've tried googling the company but I'm not having any luck.

I'm going to try cutting the rubber, but I'll probably going to end up cutting too much and ruining the whole pad lol, good thing the pads were cheap.

Ah - I can see your problem!!!

You're trying to put treads designed for Fillis irons in a standard iron. Fillis footplates are a lot thicker. You need treads for PSOBs which you ought to be able to find somewhere. Just about every saddlery in the UK would have them in stock ;)

I've never heard of psob's lol, and I don't know any UK saddle websites, would you happen to have a link to where I can buy them? Where they will ship them to the us for a reasonably cheap fee.

Try these. The Derby House treads look as if they're designed for a thicker footplate but that might just be the picture. You can always email them to check.

Hope these help :)
