I was riding a couple weeks ago and I noticed when I looked down that my stirrups were at a really sharp angle. It had never bothered me before, but it felt less secure. So I went home and have been looking at some pictures and no I realize its been doing this for years, and never felt insecure! Is this bad? Does it mean my foot is inbalanced? If so, can I fix it? I've been riding like this for so long, I think I might just be psyching myself out with this whole less secure thing.
Heres some example pictures from a span of several years:
I really hope yall see what I mean... see how the stirrup is at the ball of my foot on the inside and then at my pinky toe on the outside?
He knows when you're happy, he knows when you're comfortable, he knows when you're confident, and he always knows when you have carrots.
that's actually the correct way to have your stirrup from what you are describing ! Although in the pictures it looks like you need to push the stirrup back on your foot slightly - it looks a little too much on your toe instead of the ball of your foot.

Oh so it's actually correct? Phew well I thought I had some sort of major problem brewing haha! So basically their just a little bit too slanted? I've been trying to straighten them but I guess I just have to put my foot in further? Posted via Mobile Device
Thanks y'all for all the input! And MIE that picture is soo helpful that is what my stirrup looks like usually, seeing it on someone else for some reason eases my forever nagging doubts ( I always think " mabye they just didn't see it!?!") hehe Posted via Mobile Device
