Just a random thought that I've been pondering lately...when are you supposed to shorten your stirrups for jumping? Is is anytime you go flatwork -> jumping? Is it once you hit a certain height?
I can honestly say I've never changed my stirrup length before jumping (well I have...but if anything it was probably a hole longer) and I do ride with what people have called longer stirrups...I'm wondering if maybe I should think about changing the length? I could ask my trainer, but I always forget and I won't see her 'till Friday and this is bugging me now.
Of course, it probably doesn't matter cause Brooke and I are only schooling about 2' right now (I'm just getting back into lessons after 3 months off riding) but I've jumped her 3'6" before and hopefully by the end of the summer I'll be somewhere closer to that height (probably around 2'9")...but I digress.
Sooo...when do you change stirrup length for jumping?
