Stirrup leathers just got a whole lot better. Try them out for 90 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.

The 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.

Stability Stirrup Leathers solve this problem by broadening the top layer of the leathers. This allows for the top layer to have left and right contact points on the flap (traditional leathers do not), which in turn provides 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.

Another key benefit of the 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, which keeps the bulk under the saddle skirt to an absolute minimum.

Stability Stirrup Leathers are designed deliberately in two styles, either JUMP (sizes 48, 54, 58) or DRESSAGE (sizes 54, 60, 64).

Specifically, here are the usable lengths for each size:

48: 16-22″
54: 18-25″
58: 20-27″
60: 21-28″
64: 22-30″

    I am in love with these leathers. I hurt my knee years ago and it has always affected me in my riding. It tends to get weak faster than I’d like which causes my leg to swing. This not only kept my legs still in the beginning of my ride, it dramatically decreased the swinging even after my bad knee got tired. Will always have a pair of these!

    Love these Leathers. This is going to be my third pair. A friend tried mine and now she owns them.

    I have permanent dents in my lower legs from years of riding with standard leathers. Every now and then I would rub a hole in my shin from galloping conditioning. I’ve just started with these leathers, but the lack of bulk under my leg is amazing. We’re going xc schooling tomorrow, and I don’t have to worry about finding mole skin to protect my shins. WONDERFUL!

    I’m sold. My 2 point is extremely solid and pain free

  5. Katherine (verified owner)

    Really like these leathers so far, but I wish they came in more color options and half holes would be great.

  6. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Did not help stability at all. In fact, I think my leg was more quiet with my regular leathers.

    Great leathers! The only stability leathers I have seen that come in such a great length. My only critique so far is that I wish as the leathers got longer, that the stability portion of the leather would be made longer as well. With my leg, the wide part of the leather ends just below my saddle flap, so I feel like it can’t be doing much for my lower leg since it stops so high.

    I ordered the 64” black dressage leathers to Australia which I received today. I found these to be exactly as advertised – soft leather, very slim under the leg and they immediately improved my leg stability. As a para equestrian rider with leg weakness this is a real asset to me. I found the 64” but will order the 60” next time. I am placing an order right away for a brown pair to go on my brown dressage saddle – the brown only go up to 58” so I’m hoping they won’t be too short. (I’m 175cm or 5’9” tall). The only thing left for me to see if how well they hold their shape over time as I hate having stretched leathers. From what I’ve seen and felt today I can highly recommend them. 👍🏼 ⭐️

    Always excellent service, the leathers are beautiful and work with my AP saddle perfectly. However, the 53″ were too long even on the shortest setting when I tried to use them with my dressage saddle (I’m 5’1″).

    The quality of the leather is top notch and I would have given it a 5/5 but the length of the wide part makes the adjustability limited. I ordered the 54” and im at the shortest adjustment they will go. I’m 5’ 8” with a fairly good leg length.

    Unfortunately they were not right for my saddle. I had to return them.

  13. Grant Du Feu (verified owner)

    riding position feels improved – feel sitting deeper in saddle somehow ? – leathers needed couple of extra holes to get correct stirrup length – had to pay £32 import duty (UK) which weren’t warned about when ordering from US – over all very pleased although only used couple of times so far

    I love my stability stirrup leathers, I had a bad broken leg a few years ago now, and that leg has been a lot weaker and my leg would move a lot when I rode, since purchasing these stirrup leathers I feel so much more stable and my leg does not swing no were near as badly. Thank you Total Saddle Fit

  15. Kristin L. (verified owner)

    Just started using these leathers. So far I love them! Definitely a closer feel and more stability to my very wobbly leg 🙂

  16. KAREN T BANKS (verified owner)

    Yes… Absolutely works great…. : )

    Good at first- definitely make my leg more stable and stop the rubbing- but they are painted leather and the wear marks are strange and unsightly. (The paint wears away in certain spots and makes them look scrappy) and they have stretched SO unevenly! I am on hole 11 and hole 13 on the other leg. I have never been in to stretch leathers unevenly, and I’ve never had this issue before these. Overall I plan to upgrade and sell these since I’m beyond the warranted time.

    Help to steady my leg and no lump under my thigh. Very high quality, I’m sold! As an aside, I’m 5’-4” and bought the 54” black for my dressage saddle and they fit great.

  19. Allison Bowling (verified owner)

    I’ve only ridden in these once but I am totally impressed. My trainer was blown away by the improvement to my leg position and most importantly, the ankle pain I normally experience was GONE! We both felt that I had much better control over my leg and seat while riding in these. Today was a breakthrough lesson and I am very pleased!

  20. Laura (verified owner)

    I really noticed a difference with these. I initially bought the 60” length but even though I’m 5’7 I’m actually finding I need the shorter ones. I’ve got them as short as they can go with no room for stretching over time. Unfortunately it’s past my return window, the barn closed down for 6 weeks so had been unable to ride in them. Can’t wait to get the shorter ones in!

    I bought these from riding warehouse and I absolutely love them, they make my saddle look nicer and the leather is soooo soft. my very first ride i noticed a difference!

  22. Nik (verified owner)

    These are great. I noticed a difference right away and they are made of quality material! Would def recommend

  23. Lauren Drew

    I have a connective tissue disorder that causes unstable, painful joints. Stability Leathers on my jump saddle really do help stabilize my leg, and I notice a difference when riding without them in my dressage saddle and wish I had them on that saddle too! You cannot tell that they are wider when you are in the saddle and feel nice and smooth/not bulky under your leg. Additionally, I have a calfskin Voltaire Lexington and they have not scraped or rubbed the flaps of my saddle at all and I’ve used these for many months now. I recommend these to everyone!! Once you try them you’ll never want to ride in anything else!

  24. Lauren (verified owner)

    These leathers are awesome! They made an immediate difference in stability for sure and they are super flat under your leg. They are on the longer side, so maybe order a size down but I’m lucky I have longer legs so I made them work.

    Have yet to receive them, they left California went to Detroit, went to Toronto, left Toronto went back to California, left California AGAIN and are now sitting somewhere in Vancouver. I live in Ontario…Ottawa. Cant use them if I dont have them yet. There must be 20 arrivals and departures on the tracking list.

  27. Dawn (verified owner)

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new Stability Stirrup Leathers. I felt the difference with my first ride. I would certainly encourage anyone considering the purchase to at least give them a try!!

  28. Denise (verified owner)

    First quality leather, the brown complements my hunt saddle. I am so happy that I replaced my leathers with Stability leathers. Way more comfortable.

  29. Erin (verified owner)

    I loved them. They were absolutely great except that they were waaay to long on the highest hole even in the 48”. Please make a smaller size! I’m 5’1” but these would have been a stretch even at 5’3”! Other than that, great product and company.

    Was blown away by the feeling of my first ride in these leathers. The feeling takes some getting used to, but they really do steady my leg, I had been considering changing saddles and getting a more forward flap model to see if it would help my jump position, but after a ride in these I am planning to stick with my saddle.
