Not sure this is a great idea

I think it's a fab idea, although it did make me chuckle where it says your allowed to keep your stirrups for jumping over 2'6, I don't think I could do a tiny x pole without them.
I always start my schooling with no stirrups anyway as I just feel it helps me feel more secure so I might just go with extending the length of time without them.

Anything like that ought, for the sake of the horse if nothing else, be done in small bursts building up to longer and longer bursts. Remember, if you ache chances are you will be making the horse sore too.

Don't think I would take part. Used to dread no stirrup work when I had regular lessons. They're not just for decoration in my tack:D I NEED them!!! Very pleased for anyone who goes without, just not for me.
