    I was thrown a few weeks ago. I'm not as young as I was and healing is slower. I was trying to figure a way to turn the stirrups and Mr. Iridehorses, you have the BEST solution I've seen! I had a little bit of a pulled groin and I think my synthetic will be fine after tomorrow. I'll take pics and show you the progress and result.
    A BIG thank you to you!
    Bobby

    Here's the twist! It worked!
    Even before the stirrup hobbles, they hang at a 90 degree!
    Thanks!
    Sincerely,
    Bobby

    I've also turned my stirrups. Looks exactly like Bobby's ^^^ but my Fabtron is all black.

    Thank you very much. I was googling "fender twist" or something like that and found this forum. I think it's great! Thanks for the welcome!

    A trainer at the barn saw your "There are only two things that scare a horse - things that move and things that don't." and appreciated that.

    I learned that you have 2 ways to twist the fenders. Only one works. When I first did it, one was fender was good and one was not. I redid the side that was twisted incorrectly or backwards.

    Hey Dumas Grrrl, I liked your quote (1 Chron) and shared that with someone this a.m.
