...with a grain of salt, please. I'm not looking for competition or show or jumping seat, just good balance on flat work at a walk (with the occasional mini-buck or mini-rear thrown in for good form!)
Sorry that the 2nd picture is not a good angle. My son took the photos and the whole deal was touch and go. If the photos aren't good enough, I'll try again sometime in the future with this.
The first pic is with the stirrups shorter and the second a hole longer. Which is better? I find that when I have my stirrups longer in English, I tend to not have a good heel, hips, shoulder line so if they should be on the longer side, any tips?
This mare is NOT calm so I'm always on the lookout with her. (Love my face, eh?) She's all about head tossing lately and this is the first time a saddle has been on her with anything at all being asked of her. She wasn't quite sure of things and she kept trying to check out just exactly what was going on back there!
