    They have a completely different effect. The rotated eye helps the leather flatten across the boot. ( These are a "fixed" rotation, unlike the MDCs. A negative is that they are harder to run up the leathers for storage.) The single offsets help the top of the leg to relax and drop down under the rider's body. Whether any of the effects of non-standard stirrups will work for you depends on the specific issues with your personal conformation.

      The offset eye allows the leathers to be flat and not wrap around your shin, therefore the iron will be straight across the ball of your foot properly, and easier to pick them up if you drop them. The initial ones are for jumping, they tilt the ankle in and drop the heel more (but easily too much), not used for dressage.

        Oh dear, I thought the painful part of saddle shopping would end when I found the right saddle! Now it's trying to find the right stirrups! I think I will give the offset eyes a try. Thank you everyone for your help!
