Still having stirrup troubles
You don't see them much around here, before I spent a 150.00
What's the down side on taps ?

Are you going to be riding through brush where you need tapaderos? I've never ridden with them. Don't you wish that you knew someone who used them and you could try them out?

Have you looked at stirrups at National Roper Supply http://www.nrsworld.com

They have a 5" stirrup.

the leather ones are heavy for throwing the saddle on, the rawhide ones are pretty light haven't seen a downside to them. I have a pair of the leather ones.

I was concerned that it might be hard to keep your foot in or get a grip with your foot so to speak

they should be made with more than enough room for your foot and should not even be close to your toe, at least that's how mine fit.

Fellow named Kyle Flake makes some good ones. Look him up on the Facebook if you have it. If not, shoot me a pm and I can get you his information.
