Okay, so the biggest question I have while tacking up is what length should my stirrups be for jumping? I know they should be a tad bit longer for flat work, and that the stirrups should hit your ankle, but is that for flat work or jumping? I at least need to know the standard for one so I can approximately find the length of the other.
My instructor said approx. Two holes higher than you would for flatwork. The height of the fences and what sort of course you're doing comes into consideration as well. Cross country and steeplechase require even shorter stirrups than what you'd need for arena show jumping.
But this is just what I've heard and I may be wrong. Posted via Mobile Device
