I have a theory that maybe the reason I lose my stirrups on Selena is because of my (bad) habit of dropping my stirrups when I get in trouble. Since she's the one who likes to randomly explode, I think it's possible I'm subconciously riding lighter than normal in my stirrups. I could probably stand to stuff my foot farther in there too and that may help.
Do you guys see it? And ignore my "trainers slouch", espeially when she does her hunching, I am not a natural at western equitation, yet for some reason whenever I enter that class I place high in it. I have mastered the art of faking it though. I just don't like to ride with my spine stiff as a board! Selena Raws - YouTube
I was thinking about the purple bands because these ones are just thick enough to reind me to put some stirrup weight on there when I touch em, but I highly doubt I'm going to get hung up. They're super thin and broke even just while I was messing with them.
