Yes, they do hurt when you bash yourself in the shin with them.
My irons are weighted so they can work their way down!

I run them up and then put the tail of the stirrup leather thru the loop (that is where the stirrup would be if it was down) and then put the tail back thru the keeper, they can not work their way down.

I was taught to secure them in this fashion. I've let them down to trot or walk solely for desensitization purposes, and for a very limited amount of time.

No.

No twisting.


Push stirrup up back of leather.


Push portion of the leather that is where the stirrup used to be up thru the stirrup and then up in front of the stirrup so it is now in front of the stirrup but has come from underneath it. The photos show it going back thru the stirrup, I do not do this. Then take the tail of the stirrup and run it thru the loop at the bottom that you now have in front of the stirrup and tuck the tail back into the keeper.

Stirrup can not go anywhere. No twisting or knotting or anything.

I don't run my stirrups up if I am only lunging for 5 minutes or so. In that case I throw them over the opposite side of the saddle and they don't bang againest my horse. If I do run up my stirrups I have to change the hole they are on because I have webbers, not normal leathers.
