E-Z Ride Endurance Stirrups - Nylon/Safety Cages
These E-Z Ride Nylon Endurance Stirrups are made of durable yet lightweight nylon. They are very resilient and feature an extra-wide and deep design that allows your feet the room they need to distribute weight properly while riding your horse. E-Z Ride Stirrups are the #1 long distance equestrian stirrups and can be used with any Endurance, Western, English, Dressage, or Australian saddle!
Patented shock-absorbing top bars compress slightly as you put your weight into the stirrups, adding just enough extra comfort without bounce. The result: shock transmitted from the horse is effectively deadened, making long days in the saddle more enjoyable. E-Z Ride Stirrups are great for riders with existing foot, knee, or lower back problems or for those who wish to prevent these issues!

- Nylon Construction is Durable and Lightweight
- Top Bar Design Offers Suspension and Relieves Stress On Joints
- Roomy Stirrup Foot Bed Accommodates Most Shoe Styles

Sold by the pair.
Sizing Tip: Not sure what size top bar to order? Measure the exact width of your stirrup strap or fender, where your stirrup hangs. The closer the fit the better, because a top bar that is too wide might cause undo motion of your stirrups. Example: If you have standard 1.5-inch straps, order 1.5-inch top bars... the top bars are made a 1/8 of an inch larger than the size given.
Materials and Design: The base of each E-Z Ride Stirrup is 5 inches wide by 4 inches deep. Patented shock-absorbing top bars compress slightly as you put your weight into the stirrups, adding just enough extra comfort without bounce. Additionally, thick, closed-cell foam foot pads assist tremendously with circulation throughout your feet. The result: Shock transmitted from the horse is effectively deadened, making long days in the saddle more enjoyable.
Please Note: EasyCare has chosen a density of nylon material that is NOT intended to give, or crush, under pressure should a horse lie down, roll, or fall on the product. They consider this a safety feature for the rider, to protect the foot and ankle from injury should the horse fall or lay down while the rider is still in the saddle.
Weight of each stirrup is 15 ounces.
Please note, cage depth is measured from the back of the stirrup to the tip of the toe.
|Side Width||Tapers From 1 ½"-2"|
|Footbed Width||5 ½"|
|Cage Depth||6 ½"|
*Height is measured for the stirrup opening only - the distance from the bottom of the top bar to the top of the footbed cushion.

Comments: I do endurance rides, and after a 67-mile ride, I knew I needed different stirrups! (I have had 3 knee surgeries from overuse injuries while teaching aerobics for over 20 years....) These E-Z Ride Stirrups are AWESOME! They do "look" big at first, but I find they are very comfortable, and no more knee pain! Now I'd love to find these in different colors to match some of my fun biothane tack sets! :)

Comments: I bought these stirrups years ago to save my knees and ankles. Recently I went on a 6-day horse trek in Ireland and took them with me so my knees would make it through the week. At one point on the ride, my great big horse got a front hoof stuck between two rocks and went over sideways on me, onto another huge rock. These stirrups saved my left foot from injury as the horse struggled on top of the rock. I was able to pull free, uninjured, but the stirrup was quite damaged on the side. That would have been my foot in regular English stirrups! I can still use the stirrups and they basically saved my trip! I was very thankful I had taken them along! (The horse was fine too, thank goodness).

Comments: I must say I am so glad I decided to take the plunge and buy the EZ ride caged stirrups a while back! During the time I've had them, and even though I haven't been on any really long rides, I can tell a big difference in my legs, ankles and knees! I just know when I do get to go on longer rides, that I won't experience pain like I did before using these stirrups. I'm very happy with them all around!

Comments: These are now on my "must have" list for trail tack. I had not necessarily been uncomfortable in conventional stirrups & assumed knee pain during & after long rides was "normal.". I ordered these caged stirrups so I could safely ride in my hiking shoes. The stirrups were definitely comfortable but I didn't realize just how much ankle & knee relief I was experiencing until I rode a new saddle. Riding without my E-Z Ride stirrups was downright painful! I recommend these stirrups, with or without the cages, to anyone who has ankle and/or knee pain during or after a ride. They are a lifesaver!
Comments: I've been riding all my life. As I'm approaching middle age, and due to some injuries, I now am more concerned about ergonomics and safety than what's "proper". I've used the MDC and all the English stirrups that you can imagine. The only ones that worked were the DuPont Composite stirrups. But now I switched to western. I've used all sorts of stirrups, but these have been the best for me. One thing I don't like about poly stirrups is that they are so light weight they usually don't home well. These are just heavy enough to home pretty well. The nice thing about poly stirrups is they don't create so much torque on your feet and legs. In addition to using these stirrups, I twisted the fenders on my hybrid saddle. This is an awesome combination! The wide foot bed has been a relief! I've tried knock-offs that were horrible due to squishy foot pads that meant a wobbly ankle. Not an issue here. I was worried that I wouldn't adjust to the wide foot bed after a lifetime of keeping the irons below the balls of my feet. I'm not looking back! Comfort! And I see how my feet won't get caught, so that's a huge relief. Now I can relax my ankles and heels. What a huge relief! Comfort and security, plus RW has the best price by far!

Comments: Truly one of my all-time top trail gear picks. It seems strange that the gentleman in another review felt these cages were too short - my husband rides in a size 10 1/2 bulky hiking shoe, and he has plenty of room to insert his foot well beyond the norm - which is nice to be able to do. We've been using EZ Rides for long distance trail riding for a couple years now. Irons (for my AP saddle) and even western style traditional stirrups (for our western trail saddle) eventually kill our feet and tire my legs out after many miles of fast riding and posting. These shock absorbing stirrups keep my knees, ankles and foot bottoms happy on 50-mile rides. No more tired feet and joints after a long ride! It's also really nice to be able to purchase different top bars if you ever want to trade them onto another style saddle. We couldn't be happier with these stirrups and recommend them to all of our trail riding friends. They're great for anyone, but if you're in the over-40 club, these are a must-have!!

Comments: I've ridden with these for years. Totally love them.
From: Francis, Arizona, USA
Comments: I had a pair of very light-weight plastic/nylon stirrups on my endurance saddle. They were quite narrow; a man's shoe would never have fit. I really liked them until last week, when I had to make a quick dismount from a saddle on a horse's neck...leaned back and pulled my right foot out and over my horse's neck (as I certainly didn't want to lean forward!) and tried to get my left foot out of the stirrup. Oops! Landed awkwardly but okay. But knew I needed new stirrups. Ordered these EZ Ride stirrups. When they arrived, I thought, "Oh, my, these are BIG!" I was afraid they would be sloppy with my small feet. But they're not; they are quite comfortable. My feet feel secure and I know I'll be able to get my foot out in a hurry if needed. And I like the cage for quick rides in sneakers!
From: Diane - Murrieta, California, USA
Comments: These are very comfortable! I love how light-weight they are. They don't try to twist my foot back around. My only issue is the my toes get caught in the front-most outside part of the cage. Maybe my feet are just really tiny? I have to say it's a bit concerning for me.
From: M - Nevada, USA
RW Response: Thank you for your feedback. We have never heard of this happening before, but would suggest trying gorilla tape over the area of the cage that your foot is slipping through that way you would have a barrier to protect your phone. We also would recommend trying the Cashel Cozy Toes in the endurance size as they will fit over the cages and provide protections as well.
Comments: Really big stirrups! Really too big to my tastes, but unfortunetely this didn't carry over to the cages, too short for men's 11.
From: Joe, Surry, Virginia, USA
RW Response: We want everyone to be happy with their purchase, so we are including an extra measurement here for your convenience. The measurement from the edge of the stirrup bed where your foot enters the stirrup, to the end of the toe/cage is 6.5 inches. This is deep enough for a men's size 11 to be in the stirrup up to the arch of the foot, if desired; well beyond the ball of the foot that generally rests in a stirrup.
Comments: Ugh! I hate these!! They hurt my ankles to the point I can't walk for days! I can't find a comfortable position in saddle and they slide all around! I finally went back to the specialized saddle stock stirrups and added the winter cups! No more ankle probs!!
From: Korinne - Vienna, Virginia, USA
RW Response: Our 365-Day Free Return Policy ensures our customers are happy campers! As a side note, if this stirrup is sliding around it's due to the top bar being too long - this could also result in a lopsided hang which could have been the cause of pain. Be sure to measure for proper fit.
