    My ankles aren't what they used to be these days!

    Someone at the yard has suggested these and I need to tell hubby what I want for Christmas! :biggrin: He won't like the price though! Especially as it's "horse stuff...... haven't you got EVERYTHING yet??" Blah blah.

    Anyway, has anyone got these? Are they worth it?

    Me too.... I love them, can ride for hours now without my knees hurting.
    You can buy cheaper versions though, the pair I had prior to the sprengers were from ebay and about £15, they were also very good for my knees, only reason I got the sprenger one's is they were a get well present from my OH after I lost one of the old ones during a bad fall.

    I have them - they are an eye watering price and yes! they are worth it. It's a one off payment and you can keep your stirrups forever.
    My knees thank me for them :)

    I lent mine to someone on the yard who promptly ordered her own pair the next day x

    What is so different about them?
    I thought I was just an old stiffy but methinks I need a pair too.

    My knees really used to ache after a 2 hr hack, but now I can do 4 hours and ride the next day with no pain :smug:

    Ask the lady on the yard if you can borrow them for a ride.
