    I love the Compositi wide stirrups for jumping. Have no problem keeping my heel down and feel like I have a wider base of support. Like the lightweight stirrup too.

    She is one of the most gorgeous OTTBs I think I've ever seen! But even so, the knee surgery and year off doesn't cause anyone else's stomach to quiver just a touch??

    Since I'm mainly a dressage rider and take 1 jump lesson per week, these walk/jump exercises will give us a relaxing way to do some low fences. It'll take some of the excitement down, make him wait...
