    I think I'm doing no-saddle, trail riding winter. Saving up for a new saddle and fitting in the spring
    and the yak fur/warm body keeps your butt nice & warm!

    [QUOTE=goldenrow;6644698]Up here in the frozen tundra, we do no-stirrup January. That way you can still wear your gigantic 2000 gram Thinsulate winter boots that do not fit in any stirrup made. The Michelin Man coveralls and parkas provide a little extra between you and the ground, were snow to fall off the roof, and the pony scoots a little quicker than you do.[/QUOT

    i'm a trail rider with no access to an indoor, so i'll wait until we have fluffy snow on the ground for the reasons above.

    So, does it count if i use the stirrups to get on, and get to the arena, and then drop them for the ride?

    That seems like very early planning if you're thinking of November 2013

    Maybe it should be F*** Stirrups February? Or March On Stirrupless?

    I did no stirrup November and January, working my way through Feb/March, I get my stirrups back in April.

    I do No-Stirrups February (although I prefer "F*** Stirrups Feb"!), because it's the shortest month, and I'm wearing a lot of padding. (;

    I forgot about it until my trainer had me drop stirrups last week, so I have only gotten in one completely stirrupless ride so far, but man it was killing me. For all twenty minutes that I lasted.
