This striking and rare pair of Chilean wooden stirrups are true gems. Also known as estribos, these stirrups are carved from a solid block of wood. Taking the shape of the toes of boots, the stirrups are adorned with an intricate pattern. Steel stirrup rings inlaid with silver complement the complex motif of these sturdy footholds. Worn by Chilean huasos, or countrymen that are also highly skilled horsemen (similar to North American "cowboys"), these stirrups are a traditional part of huaso attire that can still be seen today. Huasos are primarily found in central and southern Chile, where they continue the rich custom of the Chilean rodeo.
