Keeping heels down
I've been in lessons for over half a year, I consistently have trouble keeping my heels down. My riding instructor tied my stirrup irons to my girth so i couldnt move my feet, and of course it was very uncomfortable, and we did jumping that lesson and i nearly fell as it knocked off my balance. Id like to try to improve as much as I can so i dont have to go through that again, We are working on my jumping form, and i am doing better, but my last lesson I also had trouble balancing and came close to falling more than once, even though my stirrups were not tied. any advice?
