Finally, an Intelligent Stirrup!!!
The MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are a revolutionary new stirrup design that positions your stirrups where YOU want them. Riders can now select any of three preset stirrup positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees. You can customize your stirrups to the setting that best suits you, your horse and your riding application. This Feature is a First in Modern Stirrup Technology! The preset angle improves leg, calf and foot position, relieves pressure on hips, knees and ankles, as well as reducing leg burns. The MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are easily retrievable, making your performance more precise and much safer. Additionally, the open stirrup angles greatly reduces the danger of being hung up and seriously injured.
Releases Pressure on Ankles, Knees, Hips and Back
Many stirrups claim that they release pressure on the ankles, knees hips and back but do not explain how this happens. The MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are truly more comfortable due to the fact that these stirrups come to you and not you to them. Our preset angles match your specific body needs and work to promote a greater harmony with your body alignment. Anyone with any stiffness or previous injuries will immediately feel this release of pressure on their joints.
Once the rider presets the stirrups at 45 degrees, instantly they notice that the leather is applying ½ the pressure across their shin as a normal stirrup. This reduction in leather pressure reduces leg burns, but still gives the rider who relies on this pressure the feeling that they desire. Should the rider lose their iron, the MDC Intelligent Stirrups® will tend to leave a clear opening making the stirrup easily retrievable. This increase in stirrup retrieval puts the rider back in control and allows them to proceed and compete at their highest possible efficiency. 45 Degrees seems to be the preferable preset angle for Show Jumpers and Event Riders.
Presetting the irons at 90 degrees results in no leather pressure across the shin and leaves the iron completely open for retrieval. At 90 degrees, the MDC Intelligent Stirrups® are preforming at their maximum level: no leather burns, maximum retrieval and the greatest safety, as the stirrup tends to remain open allowing the dislodged rider to clear the stirrup safely and easily. 90 Degrees seems to be the preferable preset for Dressage, Endurance and Trail Riders as well as general flat riding applications.
Of course, the MDC Intelligent Stirrups® can be set at the traditional angle. This allows you to easily run up your irons.
Sizes: 4 ¾", 4 1/2" & 5"

Stirrup Sizing Chart. Please Consult Before Purchasing.
Stirrup measurements are taken from the inside branch of the stirrup across the tread to the other inside branch. Stirrups that are too small are more difficult to retrieve and may not release your foot easily during a fall.
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” unlike other hinged products whose openings are smaller than advertised. MDC's patented design allows for more escape room from the top of the tread to the top of the inner stirrup arch. Modern stirrups are taller than they are wider. This increased area allows for more ease in escaping a stirrup during a fall than designs with less clearance area.

Excellent productBy: Elissa Bond on 2 August 2021Love these, this is my second pair of MDC sport stirrups and my body is thanking me for it. No more sore knees or feet.
MDC STIRRUPS SUPERSPORTBy: Carol on 18 February 2019Excellent product. Super to ride in. Hios and ankle feel so much better. Highly recommended.
Innovative and impressiveBy: Lauren Hickey on 8 November 2018I was fortunate enough to win these stirrups, and I can honestly say it was one of the best wins ever! The design of the iron allows movement and flexibility whilst aiding you in maintaining a correct leg position. As someone with lower back and hip pain, the way the stirrups move with the suspension of the horse has eliminated any blocking pain I previously experienced with standard stirrups. To top it off, the product is not only functional and practical, but it looks classic, and not overwhelming as other technical stirrups can. Really happy with the stirrups, and planning on buying another pair for my other horse’s saddle.
MDC Super Sport StirrupsBy: Chris Brown on 23 October 2018I was so pleased to have purchased these stirrups within the first few minutes of my first ride in them. They have relieved pain that I have long experienced in my knees and ankles as well as allowing me to feel very much more secure in my lower leg position. Well worth the cost - just wish I’d purchased them a long time ago!
Excellent productBy: Jessica on 21 October 2018These stirrups are fantastic! My foot used to get sore and unstable in regular size stirrups, the wide tread offers so much more support for your foot which leaves you with no soreness or instability, well worth the money don’t delay buy yourself some today, you won’t be disappointed
Super - worth the investmentBy: Karen on 30 September 2017Very happy with this investment. My son has stopped complaining of sore knees after riding and finds them comfortable to use. He finds that the stirrup treads are much more grippy and stable and that they help him keep his heels down. He likes the adjustable top makes it easier to mount and to 'find' his stirrups. He is using them for dressage and is happy that they do not compromise his 'feel' for the horse. I am happy because they have a lifetime guarantee. This purchase is a winner all round.
MDC Super Sport StirrupsBy: Liz Jones on 15 March 2017Great stirrups. Because you can set the stirrup to different angles they make getting on with my bad knee so much easier. Very comfy to ride in. Well worth the expense. My only regret is not buying them sooner.
MDC Super Sport StirrupsBy: MIkala on 26 January 2017I used to suffer form pins and needles after every ride, as well has knee and ankle pain. After much research, I thought I'd bite the bullet and purchase myself a pair of the MDC Super Sport Stirrups. I can safely say that I have not regretted that purchase for a second! These stirrups are my saviour! One ride and I was hooked. For the first time, I rode without pins and needles and I got off without any aches or pains. 10/10 Service from Ashbree, who were in contact with me to make sure I had ordered the right size. Having a fairly wide foot, I ordered the 5" to allow for Pony Club rules and they are a perfect fit - unlike other flexi stirrups which can often run small. I will be recommending this product to anyone who suffers from joint pain and will definitely be shopping with Ashbree in the future.
MDC stirrupsBy: Tonia on 13 December 2016Excellent product has really helped with the ankle and knee pain I was getting from my other stirrups. They are great for my horse that shies a lot if I loose my stirrup it's right there but have found with the wide base I don't loose them as much.
MDC Super SportBy: Amy on 2 December 2016Fantastic stirrup irons. I recently torn major ankle ligaments and an ankle fracture and these stirrups have allowed me to ride sooner without the pain i was getting in other irons. They are sturdy and put me in a lovely position. Love the trial period!
MDC Super Sport StirrupsBy: Emma on 16 November 2015My first Ride was AMAZING. So much better than the normal Korsteel Irons that i have. These are Amazing. I have so much better control over my feet when riding.
MDC Stirrups30 April 2015Very happy with the service of Ashbree Saddlery and the MDC stirrups. Very comfortable to ride in and love the wide tread. With the flexible sides my daughter would like a pair for jumping in.
Cannot believe I rode in pain for so many yearsBy: Monique on 7 May 2014These stirrups have changed my riding experience forever. I had come to terms with riding in pain until I rode in my friend's saddle which had these stirrups. I loved them so much I was going to steal hers, but them found out where she bought them.
