Note:

The History of These Stirrups:

Knights & Cavaliers. The use of these devices helped the rider achieve greater stability as well as a means to mount and dismount the horse with relative ease. This fact was especially crucial when the rider was wearing heavy armor in which the weight of the metal would be enough to topple him off the horse. The use of enclosed stirrups served the purpose of providing a firm, solid base platform for the Horseman to stand up in while wielding his own sword, charging with lance, or shooting arrows. while also providing armor to the feet of the rider. It has been said that the Spanish Conquistadors brought this type of Stirrup as part of their horse equipment to the New-World. Others state that these Stirrups were produced in the 'New World' after the Conquistador arrived. This type of Stirrups was made of bronze or brass to help prevent rusting.
