About us

Don Orrell Stirrups was born when master craftsman, Don Orrell, combined his passion for horses with his love for woodworking.  He caught a vision for a different take on the wooden stirrups that were currently available in the market.  He started by making them for friends and family.  They quickly caught on and over the years have become a new standard in the industry for custom wooden stirrups. 

Don’s cutting horse training career began under the guidance of his father, Jimmy Orrell, NCHA Hall of Fame member.  Many years in the saddle have given Don an inside view of what is desirable in a comfortable stirrup.  He believes the only way to craft a quality stirrup is to begin with high quality wood and materials. Personally sorting and selecting the pieces of wood that will be laminated is one of many things that make his stirrups so beautiful and durable. Don finishes the stirrups with the most durable polyurethane finish available and follows up with superior stained leather treads.
