Author Notes: Uta Gräf has made a name for herself on the international scene through her fine classical riding style which is particularly demonstrated during her harmonious performances. She has been a member of the B-Kader dressage team since 2011 and was on the long list for the London 2012 Olympics.
Her unusual combination of ambitious dressage riding and natural horse care in groups and open stabling have made her a trailblazer of the changing attitude to the horse and dressage. Uta Gräf lives with her partner Stefan Schneider at Gut Rothenkircher Hof in Kirchheimbolanden.
Friederike Heidenhof has been training with Uta Gräf since 2002 and has been following her competitive career since Uta’s first success at regional S-Level. Having been trained in her youth following the “old school” method, she is particularly keen to show that classical training methods are not obsolete, but are more relevant now than ever. .
Steigbügel MDCUltimate 4 1/4
The MDC Ultimate Stirrup designed to allow riders to put their stirrup in the exact position for optimal riding. Shock absorbing sides reduce concussion and relieve pain in the ankle, knees, hips and back. Your MDC Ultimate Stirrups® greatly improve your ability to regain a lost stirrup. Just as importantly, due to the preset open angles, your MDC Stirrups™ do not turn back against the horse’s side as aggressively as traditional stirrups when lost, which is the primary reason a rider’s foot can get caught during a fall with the potential of being drug. Performance, comfort, position and safety are the hallmarks of MDC’s patented line of stirrups making MDC Stirrups™ the favorite of many of today’s top riders.
• Patented adjustable top, with preset adjustable positions of traditional angle, 45º and 90º
• Mutli-Pivot Point, shock absorbing sides
•Traditional rubber tread
•Ideal for Jumping, Dressage, Eventing and Trail Riding
Stirrups are measured by the inside opening of the stirrup where the foot is placed. A standard rule of thumb to size your stirrups is that when the foot is in the stirrup, there is room for your index finger to be placed on either side of the boot. Some riders, however, choose less gap for their personal preference. It is obvious that stirrups that are too small will be more difficult to retrieve and easier to get caught by the boot in the event of a fall.
Generally, a ladies size 7 boot can be either 4 1/2 inches inches or 4 3/4 inches, depending on the foot width. Size 7 and below are 4 1/2 inches, while size 7 and above are 4 3/4 inches. Very petite women and children use a 4 1/4 inch stirrup, while men with larger feet or very wide feet generally use a 5 inch.
Properly fit stirrups affect a rider's safety as well as comfort. Please remember that a properly fit stirrup allows for easier retrieval and, in the event of a fall, more room to clear the stirrup before it has a chance to turn back and catch a falling rider.
All MDC stirrups are true sized. The actual opening is the advertised measurement. Most hinged stirrups measure 1/4 inch smaller than advertised as they have not taken into account the width of the rubber sleeve. Their 4 3/4 inch stirrup has an opening of a 4 1/2 inch and may be too small.
