Ok. No sturrips and send my guys in from tge back 40. Won't be pretty or fast
I started off riding english and WP...did eq classes etc before and during my barrel racing career. Blahhh blahhh blaaahhh I can ride without sturrips too blahhhh blaahhhh
But trust me....not on my 2 lol
I think im just going to bow out as im beating my head against a wall reading this thread. I don't see how rubber bands have ANYTHING to do with balance. Theyre pieces of latex around the bottom of my boot. Your balance and strength comes from your core and legs not your feet. If your bands are jacking with your balance then theyre clearly too thick and tight and that's why people get drug.
I run at large jackpots 400+ entries and semi pro/amatuer rodeos. With all of the money I put into it you're dang right ilp give myself some insurance and band my feet.
If that gets me labeled as less of a rider on some forum...so be it. Posted via Mobile Device
