How do you fix the stirrups for an english saddle?
I was wondering how exactly you're supposed to set the stirrups for an english saddle... I'm a western rider, but I have an english saddle and want to ride in it, but I'm not sure how to fix the stirrups to the correct length...
In western saddles, I know you use your 'bird finger' and put it at the point of the top of the stirrup and putt the stirrup down to yor armpit and set it there, but that doesn't work on a english saddle because the stirrups start so much higher up than they do in a western saddle...
