    ^^ there is nothing wrong with riding with a crop, if your horse wont move off your leg you should use one

    It is hard..I can only do it for a little bit. I think the reason it's so hard is because when you 2-point you use your stirrups to push your heals down to anchor your leg. Without stirrups there is nothing to lean on to push your heals down.

    It will for sure build up those muscles.

    Since December I havent ridden with stirrups lol ( on 2 of the 4 horses - the baby and the bucking pony with the saddle so old the leathers wont go back on are excluded) ;p
    I can do jumps and courses. It's hard work and faults I have with stirrups are even harder to fix without! Lol But I think it has hugely improved my position! :)

    I decided today to really commit to doing no stirrup work and riding with shorter stirrups/going around in two point, needless to say I am ridiculously sore but excited to be getting back in shape! The only complaint I have is that it kills my right knee, I'm hoping that will get better too.
