Time for No Stirrups November!

Yes folks, it's time to ditch your irons and ride no stirrups November. Who's in? I'm doing it in all instances except non ring riding, days below 40 degrees or 20mph or higher winds.

That's the pledge. Take em off the saddle. I'll admit I'm only doing it on my extra sticky synthetic saddle, but I will do it the days I ride in that saddle which is about twice a week.

I didn't invent the thing. No Stirrups November has been around for years. I'm just choosing to do it this year. Do you want a fantastic butt kicking seat or don't you? Woman up and drop those things!!
