Do you prefer not to have your stirrup leather buckle under the saddle but by the stirrup? Would your riding benefit from a more stable and quieter lower leg? Do you suffer with ankle, hip or leg issues that affect your balance in the saddle? From their original regular wide leather, Pravins have developed the Wide Single Piece Leather.
With one of us nursing an ankle injury and the other with a dodgy hip, and fed up with leathers over-stretching, twisting and even breaking, we searched for the perfect stirrup leather and we found it in France.
The wide leather provides a bigger base of support for the lower leg, giving comfort, leg stability and close contact with the horse without twisting. The extra width provides a bigger base of support for your lower leg which helps you to gain better control over it and reduces swinging. This in turn allows you to focus on other parts of your position and takes pressure of other parts of the body that might be working to overcompensate.
The Wide Single Piece leather leather hooks over the stirrup bar and had a leather sheath around the leathers with the buckle at the bottom. The buckle is covered by a small removable leather sheath. For the specialist Pravins Wide DRESSAGE Leathers see here
Importantly they do not adversely affect the freedom of movement needed by most disciplines. These leathers are for flat and jump work and suitable for hacking, trail riding, polo and cross country.
Renowned French saddlers, Pravins Sellier, have developed these wide stirrup leathers, which aid correct position, comfort and stability. The quality is second to none and they don't twist or over-stretch. The leathers have been developed with several Olympic riders including Michel Robert and Philippe Rozier, who used the leathers in the Rio Olympics.
Although a relatively new concept in the UK, wide leathers are used widely in Europe and the USA. We have tried them and haven't looked back.
Glaze & Gordon are the only retailer of these leathers in the UK.
This wide stirrup leather can be used with any stirrups but we think it matches perfectly with the innovative MDC stirrups for unparalleled lower leg position and seat stability.
They come in brown and black.
NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT OIL, BALM OR CONDITION THE LEATHERS. They will soften on their own through uses. Clean occasaionally with glycerine saddle soap if required.
Pravins is situated in the heart of the Beaujolais region of France surrounded by forests and vineyards, and was founded by husband and wife team of Phillipe and Carole. Brought together by their shared love of high-quality products, design and innovation. Carole is the more creative, whilst Phillipe brings the skill to the partnership in the creation of leather goods. The workshop is filled with rich textures and materials; leather, saddle oil, wool, horse hair and linen yarn to provide the couple with the inspiration to draw upon for their products. Glaze & Gordon love the intimacy, the pride and the skill used in this wonderful brand.

We cannot tell you how many pairs of stirrup leathers we have been through over the last couple of years; not only do they snap they also stretch and we have never found the correct ones to suit us. Pravins limit stretch, and are incredibly durable through being created from top quality leather.
All sorts of disciplines you can imagine. From Polo to dressage; these stirrup leathers give you the stability you need in every situation. Glaze & Gordon use these leathers ourselves, and cannot recommend them highly enough.
