How do you stop the lower leg swinging?

Asked by Nicky Venter

Keeping the lower leg still needs some riding without stirrups!

Practise riding with no stirrups in your flatwork and make sure that your stirrups are the right length when you take them back. Ideally, you want the bottom of the stirrup iron to be at your ankle when your leg is hanging loosely. As a general tip, shorter stirrups give better balance.
