Hey, sorry for yet another stirrup leather thread... but I was wondering what people's favorite stirrup leathers are for under about $80. I dont really need fancy, just durable and something that wont ruin my saddle. I'd like to hear people's opinions on plain leather vs. nylon core, I hate bulky stirrup leathers but like that the nylon ones stretch less. If people wouldnt mind giving me some reccomendations or tips on what brands to avoid I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance :]
Gary Mundy! Or in the absence of that, I do like the SmartPak nylon lined leathers, VERY soft, extremely durable but not bulky at all, and are quite adjustable as well. Wish they were shorter, but I have strange legs and a tiny pony!
ditto Gary Mundy, so inexpensive and great leathers. I think the leathers he made for my daughter in a custom length were $30? They do stretch like crazy though, since they are unlined, but we just keep changing them on the saddle from one side to the other and they are staying even.
on my saddle I have Prestige lined leathers, I think they were about $80. I love them.
