So I'm going to try to start doing some no stirrups work. I did half of my lesson today with no stirrups, including posting the trot, which I've never done before and never even understood, on Pony, of all horses, with his tiny trot. So yay!
But here is my problem. I couldn't find anywhere to put the stirrups. I put them on my legs and they fell off. I put them in front of my legs on the saddle and they tried to wedge underneath my legs. I can't put them on Pony's shoulders -- that heavy clanking would be terrible. I ended up just taking them off, which was great, until it was time to do some more advanced stuff (OK, actually my legs were about to fall off, but no one told you that) and I needed to put them back on. So get off the pony, find the stirrups, put them on. It was a pain. I don't really want to do that again either.
So, what should I do to keep the stirrups out of the way when I'm doing no stirrup work?
