These are my favorite stirrups. These are 5" wide, I have some 6" but I think they are too big. I think those that may want to try them might like the 4". They do come in an ecomony version that are tin bound rather than the monel or brass if someone didn't want to spend a whole lot on the stirrups.
I too like the twisted and tied stirrup leathers and I haven't found them bothersome to adjust. How do you twist and tie yours Renee?
But now I think of it and looking at yours if I just pre twist them and tie them up as close as possible to the blevin buckle there shouldn't be much problem adjusting them as much as people need to.
