The wider stirrup leather increases the surface area on which your leg balances, more surface area tends to mean more stability. In addition, the wider design prevents twisting and rubbing - giving you a more comfortable and balanced ride. We believe that a great ride starts with a great leg, when a rider has a stable leg their confidence tends to rise. We are dedicated to revolutionizing your stirrup leathers to give you the ride of your life.
They are 1.75" (4.5cm) wide on the leg side and then the standard 1" (2cm) wide on the back side.

This is a hard one as some tall riders ride with a short leather and some short riders ride with a long leather. We give a rough height estimation in the item description. The best rule of thumb is to measure the length of your current leathers and then order the closest size.
Our leathers are handmade by our partners Atelier Pravins Sellier in France. Pravins also offers a wide variety of saddles and leather goods so please check them out: http://www.atelierpravins.fr/en/
If we have the product in stock then we ship everything 2-3 Day USPS Priority Mail. If we are out of stock we will let you know and keep you posted on an arrival time.
Work the leathers in your hands to soften as they are made from a stiffer leather than normal leather because they use no nylon. We recommend conditioning them with a light coat of olive oil, yes olive oil (cheaper than fancy oil and does a better job). Millbrook Leathers can then be cleaned with your favorite saddle soap. They will start out stiff like a saddle or new boots, but then will soften and form to fit your leg.
Because our leather so quickly forms to the rider all sales are final and we do not do returns or exchanges.
We get this question a lot... Even though the European riders use it,
can we still use these leathers in the equitation ring as our rules are
different. Well, see below...
Millbrook Leathers was founded by me, Alexia Honegger, a jumper trainer in Colorado (Millbrook Equestrian) looking for another revenue stream in addition to teaching lessons and selling horses.
2014 we were in Switzerland buying horses and noticed that all the
riders were using these stirrup leathers with a wider design, so a
little investigation and a partnership with Atelier Pravins Sellier to
distribute the leathers in North America was made! We tested the
leathers in our school program and with other local trainers for a year,
to be sure we liked the quality and durability, and then in the spring
on 2016 we launched Millbrook Leathers to the public.
