Look at this precious child's sidesaddle stirrup!
Maybe this is an 'economy' sidesaddle stirrup!
...an antique heart stirrup...
..and a basic leather covered sidesaddle stirrup.
This is an antique Mexican Charo sidesaddle stirrup!
..and while this is not specifically sidesaddle, I thought this hand carved wood stirrup was interesting.
..and just for laughs, or maybe I should say for tears... look at these horrendous spurs!
I have always wanted to collect sidesaddle stirrups. I do own a beautiful leather covered one. It was a gift from one of the nicest women I met when I first started this blog... and adventure. I have this picture in my mind of having them hanging neatly on a chord hanging down beside a poster (often seen on E-bay) with antique stirrups and the years they were made! That was my intention after I received that gift. To my shock though .. some of these antiques easily sell for hundreds! I had too many other expenses to start yet a new collection. So my one treasure sits on my bookshelf.. a place of honor, right next to some of my favorite books!
