Sprenger Bow Balance stirrups?

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! 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

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