I have just purchased a Wintec Pro dressage saddle and need serious help. I rode H/J for 10 years and I have had about 6 years off from any real riding and lessons. My new horse is too old to start into jumping and I always wanted to get better at dressage. I used to do a bit of dressage but with an a/p saddle, so much different.
Here's my problem, I cannot keep my stirrups to save my life. They are shorter than what they should be for dressage but longer than what I'm used to. I am not used to a dressage seat at all and completely throws me off, along with the fact my horse is bumpier than anything I've ever seen.
So, how do I sit in this thing? Stretches? Exercises? I'm not sure if I can find someone to lunge her with me on her but that is my next step.
