It seems my stirrup length is fine but when I go to a canter, my feet doesn't stay in the stirrup for the most part. Is it a means of keeping your feet pressed down? It seems trying to ensure having my feet stay at the correct place in the stirrup is what I am most trying to make sure I stay at. I havent bought boots yet, but I know everyone doesnt wear boots all the time , even though I agree that boots needs to be worn. What I am saying I guess is that if your stirrups are correct and you know how to canter real good, shouldnt even with shoes your feet should stay in easily?
I'm getting pretty good with riding and being comfortable after having the horse for about 10 mos almost.
