Made in Germany from only the finest quality leather and craftsmanship. Courbette's pre-stretched stirrup leathers are made of the strongest vegetable tanned leather butts. The stainless steel buckles feature a curved tongue and a grooved buckle bar to lie flat under the jockeys. They triple-row stitch their buckles by hand for extra-strength and longevity. Twelve oval numbered holes make adjustments easy. After recent tests, the HORSE JOURNAL mentioned: Our overall favorites are COURBETTE leathers, which are made from beautiful leather and wear like iron. They are priced below average in this group of products. They buckle easily and showed very little wear. They are also our BEST BUY.''
