You will also need other items for your saddle to be safe and well fitting for your equine, look below and see if we can help you chose the type you might find safe and attractive.
Safety Endurance Stirrups
From ARETE EQUISTIAN
photo coming soon
Sharon, owner of Arete Saddlery, is a real sweety, she is kind and curtious. One thing I noticed on her site is that she handles items for larger riders. She also has links to other sites that carry equine items for large sized riders.
When I emailed Sharon about her products she got back with me straight away. When I ordered she verified my colors. I had ordered "blue" stirrups and she emailed me to make sure I got the blue I wanted. They carry two blues, true blue and powder blue as well as several other colors. She also made sure I received the Half Chaps I wanted correctly too. (see product testing write up below at a later time)
About the Product
The Safety Endurance Stirrups are really well made. They have a nice foot platform that is covered well with treaded rubber. I ordered the color blue and the painting on them is high quality.
I noticed that the stirrups are heavy enough to know you have a nice product but not so heavy you wonder if they are too heavy.
The stirrups will first be used on a Western Saddle. They were easy to put onto the fender and look nice when on. The foot platform is wide and deep, mounting was easy with these stirrups.
After 30 Days Use
Not only are these Stirrups comfortable for your ride, but the paint has not chipped or scratched. The pad on the foot bed is well made and stayed put with lots of riding.
On Going Notes
I still feel and the stirrup looks like I did/it did when I wrote my 30 day report. I would highly recommend these safe and attractive stirrups.
