No matter how long I ride (although, it does take usually longer than 10 mins.) my feet fall asleep. Not my entire foot, but from the ball of my foot, to my toes. The longer I ride, the further up it goes.
I've had this issue for a while, no matter the horse, or length of stirrups. If I stop, and roll my ankles outwards, it relieves the pressure. But still doesn't bring back feeling in my feet. I ride western, in an all trail saddle or a roping saddle. I usually always ride in my boots, but occasionally will ride in tennis shoes.
I did break my tail bone about 5 years ago. And I wonder if this has something to do with it? I use to ride from 2000-2003, but stopped actively riding,beside the dozen or so rides I had on my rescue horse, up until the beginning of this year. I do not remember if I had this problem before.
Is it something that will take muscle building? Does anyone have any suggestions?
