dr*ssagedevon said: I need new stirrups and have ridden in the HS bendable ones for the past decade (oh that really tells my age!) so I was looking at the prices and wow, don't remember paying that much (229.00) so are the generic ones just as nice, and provide the same service?
H*llysHobbies said: I have both--the HS and the generic (like, Intec). I don't notice any difference myself. I won't buy the HS again, personally!! However, I find I don't feel much difference between regular stirrups (fillis) in a dressage saddle b/c so little weight is on my stirrup, but in my jumping saddle and going x-country, I love the jointed ones.
scr*bbles said: i can tell the difference between mine, the off-brand ones are less flexible, and i can really tell in my knees... lots of horse related injury in them, and the HS flexible prevents me from being crippled from riding, the off brand ones dont...
m*gickmeadow said: I have the Intec ones and have ridden numerous times in the HS. Frankly, I can't tell the difference but maybe my knees are bad enough yet. I can tell the difference between the Intec, which is a 6 jointed, over regular stirrups. I prefer the jointed stirrups regardless of what saddle I am riding in. Off topic-when I bought my last set of stirrups I also bought the Kieffer synthetic leathers. They are really nice, look like leather, and so far have not stretched with daily use.
dr*ssagedevon said: Wow, thanks everyone for the replies, and thanks magickmeadow stirrup leathers were my next endeavor. I can't remember the name of the ones I have now, but I have ridden in them forever (since I started dressage and have never had to replace them! They haven't stretched a bit in all that time, but they are thick and I want thinner ones.
