    I just started riding english and I was having the same problems. Going out in the arena and getting lunged with and without the stirrups did wonders for me. Still working on getting my heels down when going from a canter to a trot, usually one or both of feet just slip. I am able to stay on because I have such a good grip with my legs and thighs but still working on that transition.

    My horse is probably safe enough to ride with my stirrups tied to the girth. What do I tie them with?

    Kayty - My horse is pretty good about lunging, as my trainer does not do lunging lessons nor does anyone around here - my horsey friends could lunge though. What exercises do you recommend?

    Maybe you guys would get a better idea of what I need to work on with a few videos and pictures, so here are the recent ones:
