MDC, known for their innovative adjustable-top Intelligent Irons, now offers the MDC Classic Jumper Flex Stirrup Iron, featuring the support of a grippy, wide-based stirrup and providing a traditional look for those purists in the hunter, equitation, and dressage disciplines that may not prefer MDC's patented top.
The MDC Classic Stirrup Line: Wide Tread Design - Traditional Classic Lines
- More Traction: MDC's a low profile, aluminum 'sure grip' tread delivers more points of traction than traditional cheesegrater pads - you'll feel like your stirrups are being kept in place with velcro, without tearing up your boots or your saddle
- More Stability: Imagine standing on the narrow end of a 2" x 4", then imagine standing on the wide side - the wider the area, the more stable it is, and so is your riding position on a wide footbed
- More Comfort: MDC's wide footbed design allows for pressure of the foot to be spread over a greater surface area - the greater the surface area for your foot to rest on, the less foot pain you'll feel
- More Traditional: Although the top of the stirrup is the same as a traditional fillis iron, MDC's low-profile aluminum footbed is half as thick as a standard fillis iron - once your boots are in the irons, they are practically invisible
The MDC Jumper Classic Stirrup with Flex can be ridden in any discipline's show ring environment and have the look of traditional stirrups with the advantages of a modern aluminum tread.
Note: For those who would prefer a narrower footbed, MDC Classic wide tread models can be converted to a traditional width tread; no other stirrup in the world has this option. The MDC Sport Traditional Footbed is available for purchase separately at Mary's Tack & Feed.
