How on earth do you do no stirrups in a slippy saddle? I can’t even rise 😂
"Maybe start wearing breaches? Is it your saddle? If so you could probably get some type of gripping pad/ fabric just put on right where your legs go?"
What to do to reduce the pressure on the knee when riding?
"Prettend like your stirrups are not there. Don't put pressure on your feet at all. I think like my feet are sitting on clouds that they lightly touch but can't actually put pressure on. Do more posting trot without stirrups and it will make things better for when you ride with stirrups. Do this and there shouldn't be pressure on your knees. I have knee problems so I really worked to get this down pretty quikly"
I'm trying to improve my posting trot any ideas on how?
"This is what I did and it worked for me so feel free to try. start trying to keep your feet barely touching your stirrups and post by using the muscles in your thighs and core. By doing this I went from not placing at all in equitation to a nice 2nd place in 2 months. Your legs will be really sore probably and it might bother your back at first if you have back problems but after the muscle is there you will feel like you could post correctly all day :)"
Today my trainer put up a jump (to possibly jump) and I just fell apart my position. What’s a way not to focus just on the jump when it’s in the middle of the arena?
"Other than acting like it's not there maybe ask your trainer to not put up the poles and just leave them on the ground until your ready for it "
How do I slow my horse down in canter? She’s very heavy on the forehand and tries to get me out of my saddle by taking hold of the bit.
"Everything said here has been all good but along with my half halts I like to make sure I'mma sitting back in the saddle a bit and it will help shorten the stride :)"
What are everyones favorite winter breeches and boots? it's getting cold here! I'm a big person, so plus sizes!
"I don't really change my boots just put on fuzzy socks but Piper breeches are pretty thick so they normally work well for me in the winter. "
