I'm sure its a possibility! Haha I know my leg is much weaker cause for the first time in my life I've been saddle sore xD Now that I'm finally in formidable riding shape, I want to start doing some stirrupless riding. I practiced around the clock posting and holding my "up" post for two strides and it was quite difficult! My friend and coworker at the barn says my leg is heaps and bounds better when I'm jumping. I wonder if it's because when I'm hacking, I over think my position, and when I'm jumping, I worry more about the ride to and away from the jump.. if that makes sense.
