Your child will ride more confidently in a full-sized Western saddle with Weaver’s Lil’ Dude® Stirrups. These exclusive stirrups are a great way to help your child learn to ride. They eliminate the time spent switching to a child sized saddle and moving adult-length stirrups up to a child’s length. The horse can wear a saddle that fits well instead of a child-sized saddle that may rub, pinch and cause saddle sores. Made from durable, weather-resistant harness leather, Lil’ Dude Stirrups have a slotted horn opening that easily fits over most saddle horns. The large front panel is designed to help keep your child more securely centered in the saddle and decrease side-to-side and back-and-forth slippage when the child shifts weight. Child-sized synthetic stirrups are covered with leather tapaderos to help prevent little feet from slipping through stirrups. The stirrup lengths adjust from 20″ to 30″ quickly and easily. Durable nickel plated hardware.
