Stirrup leathers just got a whole lot better. Try them out for 30 days, and if they don’t make a huge impact on your riding we will pay your return shipping! Offer only valid for US orders.

SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers are now available in an intelligent low-profile design that removes the buckle bulkiness of traditional stirrup leathers from under the saddle skirt, leaving a rider feeling nothing but the comfort of the saddle. This unique design also allows a rider to configure the stirrup irons to be rotated 90° from traditional positioning to alleviate knee strain (see above photo gallery for example).

The SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers’ wide-body design brings an unprecedented level of stability to a rider’s leg by providing a broader contact area on the saddle flap. Traditional 1 inch wide stirrup leathers have an inherent instability against the flap due to their height to width ratio. This either causes the two layers shift independently of one another, or the entire leather to rotate.

SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers solve this problem by reducing the stirrup leathers to a single layer of leather and broadening the portion of the leathers that touch the flap. These 2 design elements provide an unparalleled level of stability not possible in traditional stirrup leathers.

The secondary benefit of this wide-body design, is the unbelievably smooth feeling under the rider’s leg. By the same mechanism that provides stability, they smooth out the transition from stirrup leather to saddle flap to create a feeling of “no leathers” under the leg. When this is paired with the ultra-slim design under the saddle skirt, it becomes the most comfortable stirrup leather available.

Another key benefit of the SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers comes from the material selection. The wide portion of the leathers are made from a 4mm durable and supple buffalo hide to provide the necessary support for the stirrup leathers to function. The remaining portion is made from an ultra-thin nylon webbing wrapped in soft calfskin, with length adjusting buckles at the bottom.

SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers are designed deliberately in two styles, either JUMP or DRESSAGE in sizes Medium or Large, which fit like 54″ and 60″ traditional leathers, respectively.

More specifically the size ranges are as follows:
Medium: 20-25 inches
Large: 22-27 inches

Please note that due to the unique design of the SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers, the irons (stirrups) cannot be “run up” onto the saddle flap for storage. They must be crossed over the seat of the saddle instead (or left in place).

    I find these stirrup leathers to be very comfortable and they definitely do provide more stability. Love them!

    I heard that these keep you more secure to the saddle but didn’t have a problem with the stirrup leather “cutting” my contact between the horse and the saddle. Or so I thought. I was thinking it was the calf area that it would secure but it was the upper park of my inner thigh on my big movers and below the knee on some of my lower level horses. And what a difference they make. Such an innovative product. Not sure how you research and drew this conclusion but I’m delighted you did. Thanks for our hard work.

    Nice and slim under the thigh, but not short enough. I’m 5’4” and do low level eventing. The jumping length stirrup leathers on the top hole was the equivalent of my usual dressage length. I was a bit disappointed not to be able to try jumping in them as I could feel they swing less than my regular stirrup leathers so imagine they may help with lower leg stability. I think they would also be good on wide horses and wider saddles as the less bulk under the thigh meant my leg could drop down a little straighter and wrap around the horses side a little more.
