I apologize for the pictures. I had my brother take them and he is terrified of horses, so he had no idea what he was doing. I have been riding this way for awhile. And I feel pretty comfortable, but it seems when I loose my stirrup alot. My leg is shorter on one side due to a hip misalignment though, and it's always my right leg (the shorter one) so I think that is what causes me to loose my stirrup. I bought stirrup turners that dropped the stirrups down, just a smidge, and it's not uncomfortable, but I don't like it... I posted pictures with and without the turners. What do you think?
