#NoStirrupNovember Begins, Internet Explodes in Pain

That’s right, Horse Nation. The season of sore thighs is upon us, and stirrup-less riders everywhere have taken to social media to air their grievances.

(OK, so there’s a little bit of “rah-rah you can do it!” going on out there as well, but that’s mostly coming from sadistic riding instructors.)

Are you participating? Be sure to tag your social posts with #NoStirrupNovember. Each week we’ll be gathering them up in an effort to bolster your spirits, or at least help you feel less alone in your pain. It’s like your own virtual support group!

Here’s a sampling of your collective whines, goals and game plans:
