Turning synthetic fenders

Plastic eventually flattens back out. Turning the stirrup leather the other way won't cut it, because the plastic fender is still flat and now poking the horse constantly.

So, I'm wondering if using heat could "recure" or "reset" the memory of the plastic to stay permanently curved.

Has anyone tried this?

What about leaving the fenders and getting stirrups that turn instead?

Here's just one example. There are lots more out there.
