Cross-posting: are these stirrups (the intelligent version w/ joints and rotatable eye) legal in dressage tests?

I've ridden with them for about a year now and no one has said anything to me, so I hope so!!

Thanks! My USDF book says the jointed stirrups are fine, but I couldn't find anything about the 45-90 degree angle placement. Thanks, again, for your response. I inherited a pair, but I don't want to use them or get used to riding in them if I can't show in them.

To my knowledge they are dressage legal. I rode with them all last season and never had a thing said about it.

As far as I know, they are legal- I've showed with them for several years and never had an issue. They really are wonderful stirrups, I have knee and hip problems on one side and any other stirrups make my leg go numb, so they are a real godsend.
