Drop those stirrups and get to work!
Happy No-Stirrup November! It’s that time of year again — this equestrian challenge encourages us all to add some no-stirrup work to our riding regime this month in order to make us stronger, more balanced riders with an independent seat and great base of support. Every discipline can benefit from some no-stirrup work.
Looking for a good way to get started without going cold-turkey and hurting your horse? Check out our helpful guide!
Track your progress on social media using the #NoStirrupNovember hashtag. We’ll round up our favorite moments every week through the end of the month.

… and then there are the rest of us.
Omg…#NoStirrupNovember. I'm ok now but I'm not going to be able to walk tomorrow.
