Foot slipping in stirrups

Just curious what riders do to keep their foot or feet from slipping in the stirrups? I can tell when I have the right pressure on the ball of my foot but find more times than not it slips forward. Is this something that just takes time and practice? This is when I am in a trot and most times when I move into a canter.

I look forward to any comments to help me out here

The foot slipping problem comes from improper seat, legs, and thighs placement. Once you got those body parts in correct position, and you learn to ride with your toes up (not heels down), your feet won't slip a smidgen.

Get your position and balance down. If you are still losing them I suggest better stirrup rubbers. Maybe the cheese grader type. But honestly for basic flat work a simple position tune up will fix it. Also stirrup length. Don't try riding in extreme world class dressage rider length the first time! It takes time to get that kind of stirrup length and do it properly. And don't try and crank them up so far that you can't sit and balance properly.
