MDC Stirrups


The MDC Stirrup™ designed to allow riders to put their stirrup in the exact position for optimal riding. Shock absorbing sides (Ultimate and S Flex) reduce concussion and relieve pain in the ankle, knees, hips and back. Your MDC Ultimate Stirrups™ greatly improve your ability to regain a lost stirrup. Just as importantly, due to the preset angles, your MDC Stirrups™ do not turn back against the horse’s side as aggressively as traditional stirrups when lost, which is the primary reason a rider’s foot can get caught during a fall with the potential of being drug. Performance, comfort, position and safety are the hallmarks of MDC’s patented line of stirrups making MDC Stirrups™ the favorite of many of today’s top riders.

Sizing Guide

Stirrups are measured by the inside opening of the stirrup where the foot is placed. A standard rule of thumb to size your stirrups is that when the foot is in the stirrup, there is room for your index finger to be placed on either side of the boot. Some riders, however, choose less gap for their personal preference. It is obvious that stirrups that are too small will be more difficult to retrieve and easier to get caught by the boot in the event of a fall.
Generally, a ladies size 7 boot can be either 4 1/2 inches inches or 4 3/4 inches, depending on the foot width. Size 7 and below are 4 1/2 inches, while size 7 and above are 4 3/4 inches. Very petite women and children use a 4 1/4 inch stirrup, while men with larger feet or very wide feet generally use a 5 inch.

Properly fit stirrups affect a rider\\\’s safety as well as comfort. Please remember that a properly fit stirrup allows for easier retrieval and, in the event of a fall, more room to clear the stirrup before it has a chance to turn back and catch a falling rider.

All MDC stirrups are true sized. The actual opening is the advertised measurement. Most hinged stirrups measure 1/4 inch smaller than advertised as they have not taken into account the width of the rubber sleeve. Their 4 3/4 inch stirrup has an opening of a 4 1/2 inch and may be too small.
