I always lost my stirrups at the canter. Until I started jumping. Jumping taught me how to get my heels DOWN. But it you aren't ready to jump, just try and two point. To two point, you get your bum out of the saddle and lean forward. Here's a photo for reference.

I love the fake horse. =P

So see how the rider is leaning forward? Her shoulders are still back, and she is still balanced. All the weight goes down her legs and into her heels. So while you're riding, get into this position, at any gait, and you can either stand on your toes, or let your heels drop. It's much more comfortable to let your heels drop, because otherwise, you won't be able to hold yourself without hanging on your horse. The position of your lower leg shouldn't change when you go from a sit to a two point. Hope this helps. =]

Oh wow. Thanks to all you awesome people who are helping me TONS! So I went to an English clinic yesterday... And it's crazy but she told me pretty much the exact same things all of you have suggested. Wow you guys really are good!

TroubledTB -- Thank you for the info on the half halt... I get it now. Ha. And I just might try the crop idea.

Barry -- Thanks for the website and the explanation! Lol I so wish that I could fly to Europe or someplace where I could learn but I'm only 15. =( My parents would never let me. SOMEDAY!!! Ha, and I completely would trade english lessons for giving western lessons! The middle of nowhere would be Montana, actually. VERY VERY rural montana. It's a possiblilty that I would consider some day though.

Chevaliernr -- I think they're the right length. I might try shortening them just a little to see if it makes a difference though.

Savvylover112 -- oooooooh, okay... So it's not even like a true stop. Got it.

Riccil0ve -- I've jumped some in little local shows and stuff, nothing big. It does help to remind me if I jump and then try some Eq. Tho... Hahaha, the horse is cracking me up. XD
