    I do like running when I can. I just noticed those pictures are all messed up.... Pictures 1, 2, and four is my usual length... Pictures 3 and 5 are with the extenders to turn them out. I hated it. I'm sure I could ride that way, but it doesnt feel "right", lol...

    I prefer my stirrups on the short side, compared to how many western riders ride (when I ride W). But, many people have theirs too long. In dressage, your femur should be at about a 45 degree angle, a bit steeper if you are a more advanced rider.

    Thanks guys. I have a few people telling me they thought they were too short, but I like them like that.
