  1. this tip makes a lot of sense. Also make sure your stirrups are in a good position on your foot because that can impact your ability to absorb the motion through your knees. Also as my dressage teacher Heather Cochrane, tries to drill into me…. rise using your quads and core stomach muscles, that means there will be much less stress on the knees.
