Happy December 1: We Made It Through Another #NoStirrupNovember!

Pat yourselves on the back, Horse Nation —  December 1 never looked so good, and by “good” we mean strong, with a well-developed leg, independent seat and core of steel.

No-Stirrup November has its critics, and we understand why. Without a good game plan and just a desire to yank the stirrups off the saddle, it’s easy to get into trouble, from a sore-backed horse to a bad experience to even falling off (not that we don’t fall off all the time anyway, but you know what we mean).

But when you do No-Stirrup November right, the rewards can be truly amazing. Check out some of the social media highlights from the conclusion of #NoStirrupNovember, from the new heights we reached…
