    When you're sitting normally, position your feet so that your toes point towards each other for a bit, then away from each other so you can feel them stretch, my 4-H leader has us practice this and it really works wonders! Also, my old instructor used to have us stand on stairs and do the bouncing up and down thing. That's also helpful.

    I had problems keeping my heels down too, so I know how frustrating it is!
    What really helped me was to get a long piece of string and put it under the ball of your foot. Sit in a chair and hold an end of the string in each hand. Gently put pressure on the string with your hands and try to push your heel to the floor. Hold it for about a minute, then change to the other foot. I'd reccomend doing this 5 times on each foot every day.
    I used to teach horse riding before I had my daughter and this exercise helped a few of my clients. Hope it is of help to you. Good luck with it.

    Try doing some foot/ankle stretches if you are tight in that area, like circling your feet, flexing and then pointing etc.

    Ridingismylife2: are you riding with draw reins?
