When I bought my New saddle back in March I also got “plain Jane” stirrups with it. The strange thing is that eventough they say they are of RSV steel they are starting to rust. Which I find extremely weird since I generally don’t have my saddle anywhere close to water or dampness except sweat from Mr.Grumpy. Admittingly I could just call the company and complain, but I’ve kinda wanted to try the Herm Sprenger stirrups for a while now, but the price has been turning me off.
This might be my chance to have an excuse to buy them though(you know, for that better half at home that complains you buy to much).
Have any of you tried them? Would love to hear your feedback!
