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.
