what are some good stirrup irons?

I am looking into getting new stirrup irons for my AP english saddle. Since I jump I do need ones where my feet don't catch but I am not a fan of the open side with rubber band. Any suggestions? Website options would be great

Not sure of the website but there's always google. I prefer Korsteel.

Theses were two brands I was looking at. What about the plastic or the rubber flex styles?

If you want safety stirrups, but not the peacocks, get S shaped stirrups.

Rubber Flex? I've not heard of that. But I know some stirrups made from plastic and rubber are very light weight. It's worth looking into and what feels good on your feet.

I personally love metal. It feels more solid and secure to me and it's hard to break (and I'm rough on stuff.) But I can see how that would pose a problem if it has no give or "break" to it.

But if you're worried about, or preventing, a dragging situation.. then it's something to reaaaally research and go over and try. I know at Dover, they've very flexible with their products. Maybe you could put the kind of stirrup on a test saddle, hop on, and see if you like how it feels?

I'm not all that knowledgeable on jumping, either, so you may want to talk to someone like Allison_Finch who could have some recommendations.

Hope you find what you're looking for, OP!

Here are the flex stirrups: http://www.amazon.com/Korsteel-Flex-Stirrup-Irons-4-25/dp/B002HTQX3A
I personally use these and love them: http://www.amazon.com/Herm-Sprenger-System-4-Stirrups/dp/B0015HVKGU
I do have a pair of these as well on my "spare" saddle and I like them: flexible jointed stirrups
