The MDC Comfort Stirrup® is designed for riders who appreciate the traditional look and benefits of a non-flex stirrup. Patented MDC design allows riders to put their stirrup in the exact position for optimal riding and is proven to relieve stress and pain throughout the leg. Your MDC Comfort Stirrups® greatly improve your ability to regain a lost stirrup. Just as importantly, due to the preset open angles, your MDC Stirrups do not turn back against the horses side as aggressively as traditional stirrups when lost, which is the primary reason a riders foot can get caught during a fall. Performance, comfort, position and safety are the hallmarks of MDCs patented line of stirrups making MDC Stirrups the favorite of many of todays top riders.
