lenght for stock saddle stirrups

Should they be the same length as a normal saddle? I have a lot of trouble with mine being either to long to short or then just overly uncomfortable.

Any ideas? : )

They should be the same, yes. From the ground measure them by putting your fingers at the top of the leathers, and they should touch your under arm, and in the saddle they should sit at your ankle bones. Play around with them to see whats more comfortable, it could be the actual saddle too. You have ridden in a stock saddle much?

Not much. I'm getting used to it though. It doesn't help I've been riding in an English saddle for 8-9 years. XD Dad always wanted me to ride in a stock saddle though. He doesn't understand, in his words, 'this pommy crap'. I should just ride in it more, I'll get used to it. : )

Try them the same length first, then just adjust them to what feels comfortable ;)
