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.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Airbrushbobby, welcome to the forum and I'm glad it worked for you!

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.

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.
