"Angle Irons" - the "old school" kind?
I am wondering if anyone on here remembers what I believe were called "angle irons" or "angled irons"? They were popular in the 80's before Herm Sprenger et al did the flexible irons. I would post a picture if I hadn't lent my pair to a friend with an ankle injury, but I'll do my best to describe them:
They look just like regular fillis irons, except the bottom bar where the foot rests is angled. If you put the bottom of the stirrup on the ground, the sides go up to a ten-o-clock position.
I'm obviously not great at describing this type of thing, but surely someone remembers these? I haven't seen them in a catalog for decades, and every tack shop employee I've ever asked about them just gives me a blank stare...They've been a godsend for several people I've lent them to, and I'd love to tell them where to buy their own!
