I want some new stirrups. The stirrups on the new,used saddle I just got seem to grab my boots and with my riding record I will be on the ground again. Any suggestions on new stirrups for casual trail riding.

This is why I ride in boots with leather soles.

Yeah, we need a lot more information if we are going to answer your questions. I would also like to know what kind of boots you are riding in.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

If you're riding english, they have different iron pads you can buy. I have simple ones but they are purple, they have different ones that have different types of grip.

But I agree, we need more info to help you!

Look into crooked stirrups - Authentic, Original, Crooked Stirrups, Patented Western Saddles or bell stirrups with a 5" thread like these eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices. Both are very comfortable and great for trail riding.

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.

I have oversized stirrups. There a good..6.5-7 inches across with a 3" width. I wear my work boots with steel toes when I ride, and I have to physically take my feet out of any normal stirrups (if I can even get my boots in them) with my hands. That isn't safe, and I can't ride without my oversizes. I'm hoping my BO will let me buy them off her :p And they're very comfortable, especially for the trail. I use them doing everything though. Random jumping, trail rides, barrel/pole shows, etc.
I think they were $100 for the pair of them, and they're wood with aluminum (I think) plated insides (I probably called that stuff the wrong name, lol). But, totally worth it, I absolutely love them. <3
