    Get the undersides good and wet and then twist them around twice. Stick a broom through the stirrups, and in the middle hang a gallon can of paint. Rewet every couple days.

    For a few months any time the saddle isn't on a horse, twist them back and stick a broom through the stirrups.

    Heh, didn’t know exactly how big the child was! I get corn fused easily. Did you try the seat for size? One never knows, perhaps they run a little large?

    Good stuff! I keep a board run through my stirrups on my show saddle when I'm not using it. For a week, I'll twist the fender around, then for a week...I'll just twist the stirrups out.

    The problem is the stirrups up on the last hole probably jam the fenders so that they don't want to turn. Real short kiddie fenders or else a notch in the top of the existing ones would most likely help. But you may not want to alter the saddle?
