So I find that riding Western (I learned primarily in English but Shadow is Western) at least, I do better with Out stirrups. Anyways, posting in stirrups I have noticed a bit of an issue lately. When I go up, my feet go Out! I think it may be due to one or more of a few things: after not riding in ages my inner thigh/leg muscles are def weak, I am used to Emglish and in comparison the W saddle seems SO thick PLUS Shadow is most definitely Fat making he whole get up under my legs extra wide. Being extra wide makes it more difficult to keep my legs squeezed together. Lol I also have a bad ankle which I think is part of why I do better without stirrups.
Other than practice, and strengthening my legs, what can I do to improve this?
