I need to make my feet stay steady while trotting! They go like bouncing all the time, do you have any ideas?

No stirrup work as everyone is saying for sure.. but try to keep your heels down and distribute the pressure between ur calves/knees/thighs. Sit as tall as you can but as relaxed as you can
Hello Eri, I advise you to work a lot without stirrups 😳 it is true that it isn’t the funniest thing to do, but it is very helpful! I had the same problem, and by working a lot this winter (without stirrups and just working on my position in general 😂) I managed to improve quite a lot my position, and especially my leg fixity !
No stirrups can definitely help as well as putting ALL your weight into your heels and picturing what you look like... helped me 🤗
Hi Eri 🙂 You have to focus on your feet, think about it at every moment, even if if can be hard at first it will help you! No stirrups work can also help
