    I used to have the same problem...sort of! From the time I started lessons until the time I bought my first horse, I rode with my toes out. Not a lot, but I did a lot of jumping in my lessons, and they kind of just stuck that way. Then I started taking dressage lessons and my instructor was always on my case about how my toes needed to point straight forward. It hurt like crazy for awhile but eventually I got used to it. Now it hurts like crazy to ride with my toes out even slightly.

    I just had to make a conscious effort to change my position and it got easier and easier until it was unconscious. Not a quick fix, but just know that it will get easier!

    the same thing happens to me except it is the opposite way around! It sucks lol I hate trainer just said sometimes people have problems with one leg, as the other is dominant. Idk..i just stretch that leg a little more and roll my ankle to make it loose

    I have that issue with my right foot, ankle. A previous horse fell with me, rolled over my foot/leg and crushed the foot and ankle. Went through lots of therapy but it just isn't as strong as the other one so I'm always being told to pull my lower leg back, get my toe in........ other leg is just fine! Sigh....... At least now it functions better. Used to get my heel down and then after riding it would be frozen for about 15 minutes as I hobbled around..... Much better now :) Goodluck to all of us conformationally/functionally challenged riders out there!
