Yup. These are the same ones I got for $18 at Horze with 15% off.
I have the EquiWing wide tred aluminum stirrups. I have always been a “traditional tack ONLY!” person – but I had also been a “my toes go numb if I ride for more than 40 mins” person.
I found a set at a tack swap and decided to give them a try. (new in box for $10! Usually around $70)
I LOVE them. No more foot numbness. Went on a 3 hour ride this weekend, and was comfortable the whole time.
After messing up my achilles tendon over a year ago, I wasn't sure I would be able to ride in my jumping saddle again. I got the Composite Reflex Stirrups that Chocomare recommended and I am able to ride in my jumping saddle again without pain.
