English toes vs. Western toes
I've read a lot of conversations on toes. The english rider says toes in heals down. I find that very difficult to do in a western saddle and most of the riders (western) I see ride toes slightly out, heals down. Which is proper for the western rider and what are the reasons for it? I don't put much weight if any in my stirrups, they are just kinda there for emergencys if my horse spooks is that correct?
