Legs falling asleep while riding???
Hi there! I have been riding off and on for most of my life. I had always rode in one saddle and it was a bit too big and the stirrups a bit too long, but I did okay in it for the time being. When I had to chance to get a new saddle, I took it. I have had my saddle I currently ride in for about 6 years. It fits my butt better, it fits my legs better, and it fits my horse which is a plus. All around, it's a great saddle.
But after I started riding in this new saddle, my feet begin to fall asleep after the first... 10 minutes of riding? I have the ball of my foot on the stirrup, and my heels down (like I always have.) I don't push down really hard on my stirrups and I don't push out. My trainer when I was taking lessons always praised me on my leg placement. So does anyone know why my legs are falling asleep while I ride?
I don't currently have pictures of me riding/leg placement/ etc but if needed I can get some tomorrow. Thanks!!
