MDC Intelligent Stirrups® Gives Riders a Leg Up on the Competition
The MDC Intelligent Stirrup® offers unparallel comfort and safety. This stirrup invites the leg to fall into the correct position eliminating the pain a rider may have after years of riding. It has three preset positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees to improve leg, calf and foot position and relieve pressure on the rider’s ankles, knees, hips and back as well as reducing leg pressure.
Professional and amateur riders are quickly catching on to this “intelligent” equipment and find them available in traditional stainless steel and also black powder coating. They come in two designs: the MDC Ultimate Stirrup®, featuring a shock absorbing, hinged foot plate and the MDC Comfort Stirrup® which offers the traditional solid foot plate.
A life-saving benefit of the MDC Intelligent Stirrup® is it “retrievability.” Because of the preset angle, the stirrup does not return to a flush position against the horse’s side when the rider loses a stirrup. Read More.....
