Phoenix, I've had the Stateline ones; they're very well made. In fact, when I went to all-black jointed on my Wintec (black saddle), I gave them away to someone. She still has 'em on her saddle, so she must have liked 'em.

I prefer the black rubber over the gray, but it's merely an aesthetic preference and has nothing to do with the stirrup quality. I have the jointed on my Stubben, too.

These are the ones I have on my Wintec:

Yep, if I was riding dressage I'd definitely go with the black ones - I think they look really sharp, but since they'll be for use in my jumping and Hunter classes, the grey doesn't stick out as much, which is what I'm going for

I ride in a dressage saddle, very rarely do I do any actual dressage (sadly), esp. Not in a competition setting. If I could find neon pink stirrups for my trail riding i'd be thrilled. I'll just go with whatever colour I can find that is the right price and comfy.

The black ones are nice though :)

Another thing to think about is how much weight you are keeping on your feet. I used to ride all the time with most my weight on my feet and I would be in agony at the end of every ride. Once I figured out what I was doing and started keeping my weight on my butt instead of my feet, I don't have pain anymore....unless I ride in a saddle that doesn't fit.

I have to agree - certainly not my cup of tea and I typically love the brightly colored things.

Maybe, next time I ride i'll try and put more weight in my seat and see if it makes a difference. I do tend to ride quite defensively after years of riding my unpredictable bucker. I need to be more relaxed when I ride.


Oh My! Those stirrups are something else. If they were a solid colour they might not be so bad, but floral... just no.

Get an aussie saddle. My knees never hurt in it. But I do still ride my western at times and have found that by putting the weight in your seat it will help a lot.
