Argh! Is my heel causing a rub on his barrel!
I have just started to wear baby spurs with my horse. They're really small about 1/4 inch. Today I noticed a thinning or something of his winter coat (he's not clipped). It looks to me like where my heel sits - and one of my bad habits is my right heel is too far behind the girth. This is a rather telltale sign. Yikes, is my heel slipping back and forth - is that causing the rub? I thought I was doing a better job of keeping my leg still. When you think about it, putting the leg farther back would be like putting the lower leg on where the horse is narrower, right? If I moved my right lower leg more forward I would have more horse under me??
