Western Saddle Stirrup Function and Design

Western show stirrups are available in a range of sizes and styles. While you can still choose a traditional wood stirrup, show stirrups are also available in aluminum or colored aluminum with leather or rubber footpads. Western show stirrups often have intricately engraved silver plates or engraved designs directly on the aluminum. Choose from various widths and profiles.

One of the most flashy and fun Western stirrups are the bling stirrups. These stirrups make a bold and personalized statement with their vibrant colors and designs. Bling western stirrups are adorned with materials such as rhinestones and crystals in patterns and designs sure to catch the eye.

Western Bell Stirrups are suitable for general Western riding or showing. The western bell stirrup gets its name from its shape as they are shaped much like a bell. They are the most common western stirrup. Mostly constructed of wood covered in a light metal that is left plain but they can be constructed out of wood, metal, or plastic. If the stirrup is used in the show ring the metal can be decorated and engraved.

Curved Western Stirrup are used by reiners, trail riders, ropers, equitation riders, and barrel racers and come in many variations. In addition, they might be angled to provide rider comfort. They can also be angled a certain way to be safer for the rider. These stirrups can vary based on the discipline and trends of the discipline.

Oxbow Western Stirrup are used in general riding or showing. The oxbow western stirrup is another common western stirrup and are named for their round shape. Not suitable for long rides as the footrest very narrow and will fatigue the rider. The oxbow stirrup styling can vary from plain to very ornate.

Western stirrups come in safety varieties to help release the rider’s foot in the event of a fall. One such design includes aluminum stirrups with a spring-loaded outside branch. In the event of a fall, the pressure is applied to outside of stirrup which makes it open all the way, releasing the foot. Other Western safety stirrup designs include a rubber ring that stretches from the top of the stirrup to the bottom, creating a quick release if the rider falls. Additional options include a tapadero western stirrup, also sometimes called the "hooded" stirrup, named by the leather cover that goes over the front of the stirrup. The tapadero won’t allow the riders boot to pass through the stirrup and get caught. On the open range, the tapadero also keeps brush and other natural objects away from the feet. Some tapaderos are available insulated, a welcome feature for winter Western riding of any kind.

Western rider’s knees and ankles can take a beating while riding. Today there are Western saddle stirrups that provide a more therapeutic approach. Stirrups with different shapes, angles and turners help the rider by absorbing shock or by allowing the stirrup to turn more easily accommodating various foot positions. Either way, your knees, and ankles will thank you.
