Oxbow stirrups are the ones that bow out on the sides some are a basic round type like those in the photo above. Some are flat on the bottom like these

Rather than the straight sided "bell" stirrup
Bell-

There is your useless western tack information of the day LOL

Thank you for the input everyone! I just received my new stirrups today from 123tack.com! I decided on the composite reflex stirrups CJ recommended. I borrowed a friend's and have ridden in them several times. Hasta la vista ankle pain!

Thanks again!

Vida, does the bow of the oxbow make a big difference when compared to the bell?
