Endurance stirrups
 
I have endurance stirrups on my trail saddle. I like them, but I think I would like them even more if they were covered so that I could safely wear my hiking boots while riding. What kind of covered endurance stirrups are good?

Specific links would be nice.

I use EZ stirrups but mine don't have cages = funny you should mention this because I ride in sneakers and was just about to get some cages to screw onto my stirrups!

I've been bad - I ride in Nike's and half chaps with wide EZ stirrups (no cages) for years and years - shame on me....:oops:

I have no idea what has made me decide to get some - perhaps getting older or having young children to leave mommyless has something to do with it - actually, that's probably EXACTLY the reason!

Subbing to this.....after years of uncovered stirrups I have been looking for a good set. I second the age and the mommyness thing too! I'll blame the mommy thing because I am in denial about getting older though.

Are you referring to stirrup hoods? I've seen cages for sale, a configuration of straps that prevent the foot from going through.

Yes, I think that is what I need.

EZ Ride Stirrups. Hands down. Mine look exactly like these, and and worth their weight in gold :) No slipping through, and it feels like you're standing on solid ground!

Jilly, I see that they are available in aluminum, nylon, and leather covered. What do you have and do you like them?

Stirrups

Aluminum - I don't ride with anything in leather anymore except my saddle because I am really hard on it all lol. Plus, I make tack, and none of it is leather except when people insist on having slobber straps or whatnot. Fact is, leather wears down and you'll have to replace it eventually. Nylon seems alright, but I've never tried them. Aluminum is definitely the most sturdy, so I made the investment for the long haul. Never had a regret since.

You and me both sister - aluminum EZ stirrups rock.
