Patented MDC design allows riders to put their stirrup in the exact position for optimal riding. Shock absorbing sides 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 open 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 dragged. Performance, comfort, position and safety are the hallmarks of MDC’s patented line of stirrups making MDC Stirrups™ the favourite of many of today’s top riders.

Will my MDC Stirrups™ turn while I am riding?
How do MDC Stirrups™ release pain in the ankles, knees, hips and back?
The MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are truly more comfortable due to the fact that These Stirrups Come To You and Not You To Them. Our patented adjustable top allows your stirrups to release pressure in the vertical plane at the angle of your choosing. With our adjustable top, the pressure across your shin is reduced by half, thus reducing painful leg burns. The release of pressure in the vertical plane allows your leg to take a more natural position on the horse thus releasing unnecessary pressure. Our multi-point flexible sides further allow pressure in the joints to be relieved in the horizontal plane. Our stirrups have proven to be the answer to your leg pain issues. Anyone with any stiffness or previous injuries will immediately feel this release of pressure and elimination or reduction of pain, often in one ride!! Please review the MDC website endorsement and testimonial pages for first hand reports of our proven pain relief.
The most popular size stirrup is 4.75”. Riders with size 5 to 8 shoes usually take a 4.75” stirrup. Larger men or those with wide feet will want a 5” stirrup. If you ride in wide winter boots, you may want to move up a size to accommodate the extra width of your wider boots. Boot size 5 and 5.5 are cusp sizes. You may ride in a 4.75” or 4.5” stirrup depending on the width of your foot. Boot size 4.5 riders will want a 4.5” stirrup. 4.25” stirrups are for the very petite.
MDC Stirrups™ are true sized. We have taken into account the rubber sleeves and create a true opening of either 4 ¼”, 4 ½”, 4 ¾” or 5”. The MDC design allows for more escape room from the top of the tread to the top of the inner stirrup arch. This increased area allows for more ease in escaping a stirrup during a fall than designs with less clearance area.
The sport of horseback riding involves various inherent risks of injury, including the risk of catching your boot in a stirrup. No stirrups, including ours, can guarantee the user’s safety.
We want your treads to be secure and tight. Only a ratchet wrench will be able to achieve maximum security. If any looseness remains, remove the tread and apply a bead of waterproof, 100% silicone to the underside of the pads to the left and right of the four rails where the screws attach. Put the treads back in place, tighten and let the silicone dry. This should insure a secure fit with no tread movement. You may need to use a rubber or plastic hammer to tap your stirrups into place over the screw holes. This is a close fit to insure security. Do not over-tighten the screw as it may strip.
