    Stirrups

    I have really small feet and I constantly feel like I have to keep readjusting my footing with my stirrup irons, and I've never had this problem before I bought some new ones.

    Any stirrups with good traction any of you recommend?

    Well, are you new stirrups the right size for you foot? Should not be too large. It's not safe.

    There are all kinds of products you can buy to make the stirrup have more traction or padding. I have mine wrapped for more padding. I like that.

    Measure the width of your boots where it would touch the stirrup tread and add 1". You want' 1/2" of extra space on each side, no more.
