English Stirrup Irons
Sleek & Elegant English Stirrup Irons
Stirrup irons are a must-have piece of tack for any rider in any discipline. They provide stability while mounting your horse, and while riding. English and Western-style riders both use different stirrup irons, as the aesthetic and practical needs of each style differ in various ways.
English Stirrup Irons are built and designed with jumping and dressage in mind. Like English spurs, English Stirrup Irons are sleek, simple, and elegant in their design. The most traditional type of English stirrups you will see is known as the Fillis stirrup. Fillis stirrups, like these from Shires, are a classic choice for many casual and competitive riders. Their appearance and reliability make them great for both leisurely riding and for events like dressage and showjumping.
For new riders, the Fillis Peacock Irons are a great way to prevent the rider’s foot from being caught in the stirrup while mounting or dismounting. They come with a high-tension rubber band that pops off in the event that a rider encounters a problem while mounting, dismounting, or training. These stirrups are good for beginning riders or kids who are learning how to use stirrup irons properly. We also carry a line of toe cages that are great for added security while in the saddle!
Some accessories, such as stirrup leathers and irons, are essential.
