DON ORRELL STIRRUPS

Don Orrell Stirrups was born when master craftsman, Don Orrell, combined his passion for horses with his love for woodworking.  He caught a vision for a different take on the wooden stirrups that were currently available in the market.  He started by making them for friends and family.  They quickly caught on and over the years have become a new standard in the industry for custom wooden stirrups. 

 

All stirrups are handmade to order by Don Orrell. Stirrups, not currently in stock will take approximately 4-5 weeks to ship. Browse the options below, or visit our shop for items in stock.

Angled Offset Stirrup

Introducing Don Orrell's "Angled Offset" stirrup - quite possibly the most comfortable stirrup yet!
The Angle allows for your feet to sit parallel with the ground for extra comfort while providing less stress on ankles and joints. 
The Offset feature puts the neck towards the front of the stirrup with extra weight in the back causing heels to drop with toes slightly raised creating a comfortable and balanced position. This is a great benefit for disciplines that require hard stops and slides. 

People all over the world have been claiming to have reduced or even zero knee, hip or ankle pain after switching.

Tapered Stirrup

Starting out with the traditional flat bottom style of handcrafted stirrup and cut out to the tapered profile. This makes for a slightly easier entry and exit for your foot. Consists of 7 layers of laminated wood, rounded over edges, richly stained leather treads, and sealed with a durable exterior finish.

  • Inside Width: 5.25"

  • Inside Height: 5"

Offset Stirrup

Offset stirrups offer the rider an advantage in events that require hard stops and slides, such as reining and cutting. The Offset style adjusts the position of your foot to aid in keeping your toes up and heels down while riding. They are also a favourite for those who typically have knee or hip pain with other types of stirrups.

  • Inside Width: 5.25"

  • Inside Height: 5"

  • Neck Width: 3"

  • Stained leather tread & roller flap

Angled Flat Bottom

Designed from the popular style of the Flat Bottom stirrups - but with a twist (well, technically an angle).

Adding this angled option allows your feet to rest parallel with the ground while riding, relieving stress and joint pressure. This is a smaller version of the Angled Roper that has been attributed to helping riders that experience numbness in their feet, as well as ankle, knee, and hip pain.

  • Inside Width: 5.5"

  • Inside Height - Short Side: 5.25"

  • Neck Width: 3"

  • Stained leather tread & roller flap

  • Grain will vary due to natural patterns of wood

  • Sold as a pair

 

BUCKAROO STIRRUP

What started as a custom stirrup design for a friend has now turned into one of the most comfortable stirrup styles for riders that spend a large amount of time in the saddle. Whether riding a turn back horse in the cutting arena, working the stock yards, or checking fence rows, the Buckaroo stirrup is a great option for those that spend extended time in the saddle. 

  • Inside Width: 5.25"

  • Inside Height: 5.75"

  • Neck Width: 3"

  • Stained leather tread & roller flap

  • Grain will vary due to natural patterns of wood
