Finding the best stirrup
for you to use on your horse is important, however finding the best stirrup leather is just as important. Attaching the stirrup to the saddle has to be done using a firm strap, commonly referred to as a stirrup leather. As all riders need to be able to move their legs whilst riding, stirrups attached directly to the saddle would cause a number of issues for the rider whilst on the move. By attaching them to the stirrup leather straps and adding them onto the saddle, the rider is provided with a full range of movement and motion which massively aids the ability to ride. There are many different types of stirrup leathers, with ranging widths and thicknesses. In England leather stirrups tend to be around an inch wide whereas other regions will have thicker alternatives. In any case, a stirrup leather is a vital piece of tack for each and every rider.
