Keep up the good work! Fritz is such a cutie :)
Lol It's funny that you said that about the stirrups! They are up as far as they can go. :( My legs, more my ankles and knee's are a big problem I have while riding. It's pretty uncomfortable for me no matter how long, or short they are.
When I'm at just a sitting trot, my right leg tends to come up, and then slips out of the stirrup. When we're at an extended trot, I'm trying to post, and because my thigh muscles aren't developed yet, I rely on my lower legs a lot for leverage. Once I get better, my legs, I hope will get better as well.
Thank you all for the input, I really appreciate it!
