I wish I could! Maybe next year when I can actually ride and when my horse is less green

My day 1 of no stirrup november went like this:
Warmed up for 10 minutes with stirrups until realizing it was No Stirrup November
3 Large figure eights, with walk-trot transitions, stirrupless.
400ft of posting and changing my diagonal every stride, while in the air
And then lots of small spinny circles when my horse decided to turn his brain off

Well, I was just thinking that I need to get my legs in better shape for when my trainer comes back for the holidays... Guess I will be in too! Though, that won't mean as much work for me as for a lot of you, since I only ride a couple times a week

I've only ridden once this month so far and it was a lesson, so I will stick to stirrupless from now on.

I would enjoy partaking in this event, but sadly with my hip injury, I cannot even consider doing that at this time. 3:

I'm in. Not for canter work since my horse still likes to throw in a buck and i'm working on getting him to stop cross cantering on the one lead; maybe i'll do no stirrups for the lead he's good at. Yes, that's the plan i'll try and stick to.

Oh my.
I am riding tomorrow.

The horse is horrifically bouncy.

I will try after we are both warmed up.. or I think I will break aha!

Better than most suggestions I have seen in response for 'Movember' for females o.0

Does riding bareback also count? Haha! I've been trying to get good bareback as I am in the saddle! SO far so good, and even better actually!

Actually rode in a saddle yesterday. We were helping some friends sort calvea and load them on liners and I was asked to ride one of their horses to get the cows back in to sort some dry ones out and such. Well, my stirrups were too long and I was much too lazy to change them, so I sorted and chased cows stirrupless yesterday :)
