Where Should Your Foot Be in the Stirrup?

It is often the small changes in our riding that can make the biggest difference.

A shift in one part of our body can affect so many other areas, but many of these smaller details or nuances about riding aren’t taught in regular riding lessons and may even seem counter-intuitive in the beginning.

Today, we are focusing on one of these so important, yet rarely discussed aspects of riding… where exactly should your foot go in the stirrup?

If you have been told where to place your foot, it was likely to “keep the stirrup on the ball of your foot”, and that kind of feels right – you can push on the stirrup to steady yourself, you can get your heel down… but these are exactly the movements that are making you feel unstable and out of balance.

In this video, I will show exactly where to place your foot in the stirrup and why it’s important.
