    Default Which Royal Rider Stirrups to buy?

    I searched the forums, but didn't find a lot on the Evo and T3 models...

    I've been riding in the HS Bow Balance- good for my bad knee, not stable enough for my ankle. I do like the wide footbed a lot, which is why I am looking at the RR stirrups now.

    They will be for my jump saddle. Any opinions and reviews? In terms of jumping is the changed angle of 30 or 80 degrees going to interfere/benifit my ability to put my calf on, toe out, and leg around the horse?

    I'm primarily looking at the T3 (http://cheshirehorse.com/Royal-Rider...14C503.aspx)or Evo (http://cheshirehorse.com/Royal-Rider...P2869C503.aspx), but if the originals are best, I'd go for those, too.

    Thanks guys!

    I use the Royal Rider wide track stirrups and I LOVE them. They look good, they have handled regular use very nicely and they are comfortable. They might be light weight, but they are extremely sturdy.

    I can't speak to how the ones you linked would impact your jumping, but the quality of the brand is wonderful.
