"The relationship between horse and rider is closer than any two beings, even if you’re married. When a horse gets tentative, you don’t get tentative. That’s the kiss of death. You get positive." - George Morris
Anonymous said: any advice? I can do no stirrups and jump no problem, however as soon as I use stirrups over fences me leg slides back! I don't understand why, and my horse is not very forgiving so he gets pissed at me and starts bucking lol. do you have ideas what I could do? maybe I do need more leg muscle, but I don't think that's it :(
You might be putting your weight into the balls of your feet rather than your heel when you pick up your stirrups!
