^ Yes ma'am I have. I've actually been riding her bareback a lot, which is actually more comfortable than with a saddle so I feel like I've been spoiling myself.
So, as my solution, I let my stirrups down an extra hole. I had them up because my feet would fall out on my other gelding, but it turns out on her it's more comfortable to have them longer....And I can definitely sit down and balance better without being choked with the stirrups.
After a long bit of that, I think we're ready to compete again. My trainer thinks so too, she says we both look better sitting than posting.
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
