That’s how we roll.
Promised an update on my offset stirrups, so here’s a brief one for you.
They’ve become fairly comfortable for me. With arthritic ankles, they could have gone either way – either a great fit, or a source of new pain.
If you’re after experimenting with heel/toe position, they could be worth a try, maybe,but they’re not going to make a huge difference.
If you’re like me, and most of the leg position stems from the clamping hips, there’s simply not going to be a magical change – of course.
But I do like how the left leg and foot falls now. (Sorry, grainy video still shots, all I have for you this weekend.)

The right foot. Well, yeah, it’s still doing it’s delinquent thing. Poking straight in as soon as I apply the aid.
All day. Every day. Horrible. Even when just standing still on the ground, unmounted.
So. Forget all this and pick up a new hobby since it won’t ever be perfect, or ignore it and try to make the best of it?
Not really a tough call.
