Have you heard of these Stability Stirrup leathers? If you have been reading my blog posts, then you have for sure! The last time I talked about these stirrups leathers was way back pre-pandemic. In 2019 I wrote a blog post titled: The Best Wide Stirrup Leathers Period. I professed my love for these stirrup leathers in that article.
Well, nothing has changed. My Total Saddle Fit Stirrup leathers are my go to choice for riding. Whether I am hacking out on the trail or doing some pole work in my arena. I even was lucky enough to share these stirrup leathers with someone who joined my No Stirrups November Challenge a few years back. That made me really happy. To be able to share such a great product? Heck ya!
And then just yesterday, I got an email from Total Saddle Fit:
Oh my goodness! You see – this is why you sign up for emails from your favorite companies. You get emails like this!
And of course, I clicked on the link, which took me to their YouTube channel. And I saw this:
You should really watch this video. Especially if you want a chance to be able to test out their new design of the Stability Stirrup Leathers. This just looks so cool. And honestly, I have to say I was totally drawn in by the bling. #goldyesplease
and I was so excited to share this with YOU. Of course, I would love to be able to really test out the new design of the leathers with the buckle. This seems like a great advancement in stirrup leathers, for sure. But I wanted to share it with you so that maybe you’ll have a chance to really get to experience how awesome these stirrup leathers are.
Stability Stirrup Leathers are the Best Wide Stirrup Leather
Hands down, these are my most favorite stirrup leathers I have ever owned. Have you ever tried a wide stirrup leather? If you haven’t let me tell you why I feel these are the best.
The first thing that makes these wide stirrups work the way they do and provide greater stability is the width of the top of the leather. The top is about twice as wide as the portion that feeds through the stirrup bar. The wideness of the leather on the top is what makes it more stable. And depending on which size you get determines how long this wide part is. For example, the leathers I chose were the black dressage length, and the wide part of the leather is 18.5” in length. They also have a shorter version that is meant for jumping, and the wide section of the stirrup leather is 16.5” long.
The leather is soft, and the stirrup leather itself is the thickness of traditional stirrup leathers. This makes it easy to pass through the stirrup bar when you’re attaching the leather to your saddle. And when you get down to the narrow part, my favorite part of this leather, you will find something great, a nylon core. This means the stirrup leathers will not stretch out. No matter how much you ride in them. No matter how much you oil and condition the leather, it will not stretch. That in itself is a reason to try these for yourself.
Best Wide Stirrup Leathers
The upper or wide portion of the leather is made from buffalo hide (very nice), and the lower portion has an ultra-thin nylon webbing wrapped in calfskin. This helps to keep the leather thinner but strong. And it is nice because there is less bulk beneath your leg. But with the new modification that they are trying out, the leather stirrup leathers will lie even flatter. Meaning no large bump where the stirrup leather feeds through the bar, and the buckle sits. This is sheer genius!
But Do They REALLY Work?
From the first ride, I noticed a difference in my leg stability. My leg feels strong when I ride with these leathers. And for me, someone who is older and doesn’t have as much strength in my leg as I once did, I will take all the help I can get. I feel more confident in my ability not to interfere with my horse as he moves forward, and my legs aren’t all over the place.
There is no pinching of my leg from the stirrup leathers, and it just feels so right! I am in love with my Stability Stirrup Leathers from Total Saddle Fit. And from the first time I ever tried a wide stirrup leather, I knew this was the right choice for me. But now, finding the best of the best, well, it makes it even better. And I think after riding with these leathers for the past 4 years, I can give a very enthusiastic two thumbs up for these leathers. They truly are the best of the best.
And they are obviously on to something because now it seems everyone is jumping on the wide stirrup leather craze.
But while others try to imitate, I don’t think any of these competitors will have the level of quality that Total Saddle Fit does. I have been very impressed with the longevity of these leathers. And they are so sure that you will love their wide stirrup leathers that they offer a money-back guarantee. This is great, in my opinion. You can try them out and know that if you don’t like them, you can send them back. But I’m very confident once you try them, you won’t want to ride in anything else.
