    Any Saddle Seat Riders? Need Advice

    Good Evening all,
    Hope your evenings have been uneventful; Quick true story: why I was out shopping, my mom and younger sister were home and a thunderstorm started. Apparently lightning stuck part of the house (no damage done and everyone including pets are safe) But mom could not get one of our alarms off, finally had to call the sheriff to help turn it off, so now it's nice and quiet

    As I have said in my other posts I have started Saddle Seat lessons. One thing that keeps happening is that my left foot keeps slipping forward through the stirrup, any advice is appreciated! And remember it is Saddle Seat

    The discipline matters not, it's your body position. You may need someone to stand behind you and make certain your hips and shoulders look like this - I, and not - > or <. If the hips aren't parallel to the shoulders, one leg will have more pressure in the stirrup, then the shoulders will tilt to compensate for the tilted pelvis.

    Other than not being straight in the sadddle like saddlebag said, you will need to think about kepping your toes up.

    You should feel like there is a weight in your heels, and as if they are the lowest part of your body. All your weight when posting goes through the heel. If your toes are up and resting on the stirrup at the ball of your foot, your foot will not go through the stirrup.

    Discipline really doesn't have anything to do with it but I ride saddleseat. You're probably not putting enough pressure in your stirrup. Try standing in your stirrups and sit back down trying to keep the same pressure in your stirrups as if you were still standing. This helped me :)
