  • The most technical stirrups usually come with a price tag of a considerable investment, as do the majority of safety stirrups with break-away arms, so if you’re shopping for the best cheap stirrups you can find on a budget you’ll need to look elsewhere.

    We’ve rounded up a selection of the best cheap stirrups under £50 for you to browse – these stirrups are all more than a standard pair of irons. They range from bent-leg irons and peacock stirrups for children, to lightweight, colour co-ordinating and shock-absorbing options.
