Your stirrups are too long. When you take your feet out of the stirrups, they should touch the bulb of your ankle bone on the inside of your ankle. You have too much of your foot in the stirrups. Just have your toes through it. Heels down too :) You have a very pretty horse and a nice saddle <3
i actually got this saddle and the girth,shaped saddle pad,martingle,bridle,reins,stirrups,and breastcollar.at a sale at a theraputic riding center(s.t.a.r.)all for 40.00.it was a big charity thing and there were a lot of great deals there.
