These stirrup straps are thin, yet very strong. Made from granite biothane, they'll hold up longer than leather but don't create a bump under your leg. Even better when you run the buckle at the bottom and use the handy keeper to put the excess strap neatly out of the way
If you sometimes want the protection of a fender and sometimes want the freedom of riding with only a stirrup strap between you and your horse, the slip-on fender is a great option to save money as well add great convenience. These fenders will work best with Ghost or other thin biothane stirrup straps, not thick leathers.
Standard length of the channel is 14" / 36cm. If you need longer, you can use stirrup strap keepers to hold the fenders higher, or order 2" / 5cm longer. If you're short, we can order 2" / 5cm shorter. I typically only have the standard size in stock.
If you want the look of a western fender, Ghost makes 2 different options. If you need the ability to choose either the front or rear stirrup ring, then the single strap fender can be ordered for a 1" english stirrup top bar or a 2", or 2.5" top bar for endurance or western stirrups. For those who would like a little more stability for their lower leg, the 2-strap western fender uses both stirrup ring and can be ordered for a 2.5" top bar for an extra $10.
I stock the standard length (occasionally I have a short set) and can order the shorter and longer versions if you need. Standard is 41cm / 16" and they can be shorter or longer by 5cm / 2" measured on the fender, not including the straps. Functional range for the standard length is 19" - 23" from stirrup ring to stirrup top bar.
Carry your saddle without stirrups banging into your shins! These nifty straps connect to the back dees and have a scissor snap so you can quickly secure your stirrups for saddling or carrying. The biothane version are made from beta biothane in the US. If you want to match your saddle material, choose the Ghost version and specify color/material in the comments - see https://badlandsequine.com/color-zones-and-materials - if needed. I keep some black Ghost ones in stock and I have a few in biothane colors from Moss Rock. If you want to get those a bit faster, visit www.MossRockEndurance.com.
For those who prefer a Webber style stirrup strap, Ghost has designed a T-bar stirrup strap. The top has a nylon loop that goes through the stirrup ring and there's a leather cover for the T-bar.
The hole in your stirrup needs to be 30mm x 10mm (1.25" x 0.25") minimum for the T-bar to fit through. Not recommended for jumping or hard use.
Note: due to a worldwide shortage in T-bars, the design will be changing from the T-bar to a Conway. I have some T-bars still in stock (not short ones) and will be getting the Conway version in stock soon.
