Hi so I had my third riding lesson today and my instructor was riding me (haha) about keeping my heels down. We shortened my stirrups and that seemed to help....my right foot.
I seem to be able to keep my right leg/foot in a proper position: heel down, balls of foot on iron, calf keeping an (almost) solid connection, but my left foot loves to pop out of the stirrup and my calf/leg is all over the place.
So I was just wondering if there are any exercises I can do to help strengthen my leg muscles and loosen my ankle up? My leg positioning is def effecting my posting which I'm finding difficult to do right now. Oh, and apparently I stand up a little too high when I post.
ALSO I was wondering if full seat breeches would be at all beneficial to me at this point in my riding? I own a pair of Kerrits knee patch tights and since I'm new to riding I honestly have no idea what they're supposed to help with
Oh and would half chaps help too?
Sorry for the long post (also sorry if in wrong forum!) thank you for reading!!
