A Pair of Antique Steel Stirrups with Leather Cushioned Treads

I bought these stirrups at a sale of items from the Althorp Estate (the Spencer family estate in Northamptonshire & the childhood home of Princess Diana).

They are a traditional English shape and made of steel.
The tread or footplate is oval and covered with a horsehair stuffed leather pad. There is a one inch split on one of the seams, but the overall condition is very good.

I am not sure of the purpose of this padding - is it comfort alone?

Dimensions : Width 5¼" (14cm), height 6" (15cm), depth of tread 2½" (6.8cm)
Weight : 918g (2lb ¾oz)
