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.

Sizes:  4.25", 4.5", 4.75", & 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.

MDC stirrups

I love these stirrups! They make it so simple to find your off side stirrup when mounting, and they put a lot less pressure on your knees, especially good for riders with leg/knee problems. They are comfortable, a good width and a good weight, so it would be very hard to get your feet caught in your stirrup if you get into trouble. Highly recommended!

Pretty darn good!

These are a great stirrup! Good weight to them making it easier to reach to the stirrup itself and then already a noticeable improvement in the freedom of my hips which have often locked out on me in the past. Definitely recommend.

Great stirrups

Love these, now have them on both my saddles, removes all pressure from knees, hips and ankles, puts my foot in a great position and also removes pressure from stirrup against the outside of my foot.

Love this stirrups

These stirrups are just what they say they are - they are really comfortable and already have helped my hips to relax. The only thing that is not quite so good is that when you have the stirrup at 90 degrees the clip at the top can dig into my ankle - but only if I'm not riding with my feet in the right position. So this will teach me to ride better.
