It’s a fact! Keeping your heels level or below is the basis for a correct seat on a horse! Every rider can testify that putting your feet in the right position can be very difficult without proper training. Even if you don’t have access to arena mirrors or a full-time trainer, the Heel Trainers will help you develop proper muscle memory and keep your feet in the right position.
Everyday movements become automatic with muscle memory and improve with practice, such as riding a bicycle, typing, and of course, riding a horse.
By repeating the same movement every time, your body will eventually “learn” it. Sounds easy, right? How many of us still have to work hard at keeping our heels down, even after years of riding and expensive lessons? Do you have difficulty knowing when your heels are in the proper position, or one heel that constantly creeps up more than the other? You are not alone! Lifting your heel will also change your hip position and weight distribution, which can affect your horse’s balance and movement.
