no stirrups - rode the transitions through w/t/c w/o stirrups. i had no trouble with this.
longer stirrups! After riding with no stirrups, my stirrups seemed way too short. Lengthened my stirrups to match the way I held my legs w/o them. What a huge difference.
transition down from canter to sitting trot
Gem was much more round. all the riding in a frame is paying off.
