No Stirrup November
It's a little early but I'm seriously considering participating in No Stirrup November. Last year I had only had Benny for about a month and wasn't ready to commit to working with out stirrups. This time around I could see it being beneficial for us, specifically for my position. I have a couple of hesitations, the first being that I have a show the first weekend of November. Due to that, I wouldn't start until the second week. My other issue is that it's going to make for shorter rides (or more walk/canter work). Benny's got a great trot but it's super bouncy. I can ride just fine with out stirrups for a little while but when I start getting tired things fall apart. My other thought it that I may just commit to doing some work with out stirrups every ride. Is anyone else thinking of doing it? What makes you hesitate?
