How beautiful are some of these stirrups? They'll definitely get you noticed both in the schooling and show rings. But before you add these onto your saddle, make sure that they're acceptable for the discipline that you show in.

For instance, you wouldn't want to use some of these styles if you compete in the hunter or dressage discipline, since they might take points off of your score or even get you kicked out altogether.

Some of these stirrups are so fancy that they're works of art. You'll want to keep them in great shape and save them for the show ring, so it's a good idea to only put these on your show saddle. If you only have one saddle, then consider buying two pairs of stirrups - one for shows, and one for everyday use.

Don't forget to take care of your tack, too. Wiping your tack down after each use can help to ensure that it lasts you for years to come.
