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.


45 Degrees
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.


90 Degrees
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.


Traditional Angle
Of course, the MDC Intelligent Stirrups® can be set at the traditional angle. This allows you to easily run up your irons.

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.

Love these Sitirrups

By: on 29 October 2020
I have had recent ankle surgery and I bought these stirrups after searching the internet for recommendations for stirrups to help with my recovery and possible ongoing ankle issues. I love them!!!!! Compared to my old standard knife edge irons these place much less pressure on my ankle. They are lovely and stable under my foot, and with the eye set at 90 degrees and the weight of the stirrup they just sit in the right place for my foot. I didn't realise how much pressure is on your ankle in even just positioning a normal stirrup until I had this injury. I highly recommend these stirrups. They might be on the more expensive side, but they are going to last me forever.

Love them

Love these stirrups most comfortable to ride with

After recommendations from other riders I purchased a pair of MDC Ultimate Stirrups with the hope of reducing knee pain following surgery. I have only ridden in these for a short time but can already recognise the benefits of the rotational head clip and the built in suspension sides. I had to return these stirrups for a smaller size and appreciated the service that I received with a no hassle exchange system.

I have always suffered from weak ankles and after a long trail ride or hard work out my ankles ached and part of my foot/toes would be numb but since getting my mdc stirrups cannot believe the difference its like having cushions under my feet the best investment ever thanks to Ashbree Saddlery great service prompt delivery well done guys

Super comfortable

Great quality and very well made. I have only ridden in once but already feel more secure. My leg feels like it sits a lot better and I seem to be able to stretch down into the stirrup better. I have always had trouble keeping my leg still and my foot always creeps up. Very happy. Thanks also to Deb for helping me with sizes. They fit great.

Very happy with my new stirrups. No more pain! Love them!

The best stirrups ever

By: on 13 June 2013
I borrowed a pair of these stirrups and after I tried them once I begged and begged her to sell me her stirrups. I was resolved to the notion that riding equalled pain. But after riding in these MDC stirrups, for the first time ever I was pain free. I am so glad Ashbree is stocking these stirrups as I won't ride in anything else now. I would recommend these to everyone.
