Topic: Heels down is an instruction we have all heard our entire life of riding. While it is an important instruction for all riders, especially novice riders, this instruction can also be taken too far and actually work against our balance and stability in the saddle. How we use all of our joints, not just our ankle joint, can make riding a lot easier or a lot harder.
