Hello everyone! I’m looking for a recommendation on silver stirrups that are approriate for the equitation ring. I’ve been riding in Royal Riders for ~2 years and LOVE THEM. When USEF made the rule change this year, I went out and got the silver RR’s which claim they are “appropriate for the eq ring.” Well, this past weekend I ended up getting disqualified in an unrated eq division in Aiken because the judged still deemed them illegal and too dark. Let’s just say I will be returning them pronto… anyways, I’m looking for a new stirrup. I have bad joints and a larger foot, so I really really like the wider footbed on the RR’s.
Any suggestions as to what I should get? I’d prefer to stay under $200, as that is about what I should get back from my RR’s.
I’m looking into the MDC Sport/Hunter Classic stirrups, anyone have experience with those?
