    I am in no way strong enough to do that... you've got muscles of steel, girl!
    I do! That's me in the Canadian flag bathing suit, it's Canada Day here, so I thought this pic was appropriate!

    I will alexis, it's not too far for me this year, Kamloops, 3 hour drive with the trailer.

    It's about a four hour trip for me without a trailer, unfortunately though I don't think we're ready to compete on the flat, we're solid in the jumper ring but he still turns into a bit of a nut with lots of other horses riding alongside him and since jumpers only runs for one day of the show I thought I'd put it off until next year (and hopefully convince my coach and the rest of the girls I show with that it would be a fun trip).

    Oh lord... Sitting trot... Without stirrups...On a pony with a straight shoulder... That is extremely forward going.... For half an hour almost non stop.... HELP!

    I'm forced against my will to do that on a regular basic by my instructor!!!!

    Wow, that sounds intense! I've managed to get a bit of a break from really torturous no-stirrup work lately because flappy things like dangly stirrups scare my horse and make him want to bolt. So we do some, and lots of desensitization work, but not as much as usual.

    CandyCanes... I actually do a sitting trot much more easily without stirrups, for some reason! Also I used to have a hard time keeping hold of my stirrups at a canter, as well... it took me a long time to be able to canter so we worked constantly on no-stirrup work to improve my seat until I could manage it.

    No flappy stirrups here, my coach makes me cross my irons over the horse's back, without looking at a walk and retrieve without them smoothly, no looking & no tangling them. Even that takes concentration. Today's lesson was easier, phew, transition and pattern work, with stirrups, what a treat!

She removed my spurs, and balanced them on top of my toes, then had me drop my stirrups and I had to work at all three gaits, extending & collecting them. I had sweat in my eyes, down my face and running down to my chest, but I finally mastered it each gait, extended & collected, for one round of the arena. I wonder what she has in her bag tomorrow? Wednesday will be easier, doing western with a large group to perfect traffic negotiation skills. What's in your trainer's bag?
    I can't picture "balance them on top of my toes". Can you explain that in more detail please?
