High quality craftsmanship from the design to the finished stirrup: That's what Nettles Stirrups are all about and the Nettles trademark guarantees it.
Meet The Chisolms, aptly named after John Wayne and the best-looking, best-riding, best-built stirrup on the market.
This stirrup is designed by cutting horse Hall of Fame trainer and problem-solving guru Ronnie Nettles. Made of five oak laminates from logs milled at the Nettles Stirrups Manufacturing Company, The Chisholm is a great work stirrup. It is graded at five stations during the building process, has rounded inside edges and is finished in a Gunstock Light that blends smartly with todays saddles. The Chisholm’s excellent stability and smart style makes it the best value stirrups on the market.
Why Nettles Stirrups Work . . .
It begins with quality logs to guarantee clean wood is used in the construction of Nettles Stirrups.The logs are cut into laminates and then glued together. This layering process provides strength, cushions the pounding on a rider’s hips, knees, and feet, eliminate stress cracks and stirrup warping. Five laminates construct The Chisolms. Stirrups pass five gradings during the building process. Construction includes a steeper bend in the stirrup which increases comfort and reduces the risk of losing the stirrup. A uniquely structured stirrup tread sets the rider’s foot and aids with balance. Built with innovative machinery designed by Ronnie Nettles.
The highest quality leather available is used, enhancing a longer tread life. A Nettles-designed lacing machine snugly attaches treads with five lacings in The Chisolms line. Skived treads create a closer fit and neater appearance.
Double steel rollers provide extra strength.A smaller throat diameter helps eliminate shin pressure. Brass and chrome nuts accent Nettles Stirrups.
Nettles Stirrups Are All About Safety . . .
The best quality oak logs are the basic wood used, making them stronger and hence, safer. There are no veneers or soft woods used in the Nettles building process. Lamination eliminates cracking, a problem for other non-laminated wooden stirrups. A double steel roller adds double strength to the stirrup throat and it will hold its shape throughout the stirrup’s life. Plastic rollers however, with time, will bow from the gravitational pull throwing the rider out of balance. The Nettles Oxbow Stirrup has a slightly wider width in its middle allowing a rapid exit should you need to unexpectedly dismount. Nettles Stirrups are built double-tough to help you withstand the ravages of some of the rowdiest wrecks. Should, however, a horse fall hard, the stirrup can break, freeing you from the saddle. Add the numerous small details that only a trainer would know and want for his own safety and you can rest assured Nettles Stirrups are built with protection in mind!
Nettles Stirrups are all about Strength . . .
This Dodge Ram 3500 Quad Cab Diesel is perched on top of a Nettles 3 inch Flatbottom stirrup. The plyboard under the stirrup cracked, but the stirrup remained solid as she comes, as you can see from the pictures.
What Does This Mean To You?

Nettles opted for the lamination method because of the extra durability and the damping effect.
