Western stirrup swivels???

What is everyone's experience with battling knee/ankle pain using stirrup swivels? I get intense knee pain after just a short ride and really hope these will help! What brand do you use? Or do you have any other solutions for pain?

Yes! My mom just got a new pair of stirrups and they have helped immensely with her knee problems. They are amazing! I can't wait to get a new pair myself!

One of our saddles came with a pair, and they do help with knee pain, but..... I find that if you drop a stirrup, its harder to pick it back up as the stirrup just swivels back to the flat position, where with a properly turned fender, the stirrup stays pretty much where you want it to slide your foot back in....

I never have this trouble with my english saddles though, so maybe its just me, because they lay flat when you drop them too., but they bounce around a bit more, so maybe that's the difference...

It depends on the stirrups. The ones I posted are actually twisted and not set on a swivel. They don't twist back if one is dropped because they are set that way.

My mom has issues with picking stirrups up if she loses them and constantly complains and blames stuff on the stirrups. (when it's really her) But with the new ones, I haven't heard a complaint yet. (Thank goodness) LoL.

The ones you posted look like they'd be great! These look more like what came on our spare saddle....

My mom had something similar to those before she got the new stirrups. They left bruises on her ankles after every ride for some reason. She hated them with a passion. LoL.

I can't wait to get my Wall's Stirrups. They are so comfy...

knee, pain, stirrup
