I've always ridden English, but after a fall I lost a bit of confidence and bought a stock saddle with fenders for a more secure ride. Its pretty good so far, but I am having a few troubles with my stirrups. Whenever I do rising trot I feel like my foot isn't securely in the stirrup and that I can't get a secure "heels down" position that I could easily get in english. I'm not sure if its the stirrup type, or maybe its not sitting quite "straight across" and twisting back to the normal postition?
Anyway has anyone has problems like these when switching to a fender saddle? Any solutions?
My saddle isn't anything special, just a synthetic, but I didn't want to shell out a fortune if I didn't like this style of riding.
Here's a pic of my saddle:
