Ok this is going to sound werid but does anyone have turny outey feet I mean nothings wrong with them but when you stand normally do they turn out?
If so how did you stop this when riding, I mean when I ride I know my feet are ment to be parrell to the horse but its just natural to turn them out, can you train your feet to stop?
I had never really thought if it before but at ponyclub today the instructor kept telling me to point my toes forward

Don't worry, toeing out slightly is very natural.

Your toes will turn out a bit in the saddle, the point is that they don't turn out any more than they do when you're standing. If they do, you're gripping too much with the back of your leg. You're heel is probably up a bit, too, if you're toeing out in the saddle, and you can confirm this by taking a look at the wear on your boots, dirt on your pants-leg, etc. after you've ridden. If most of the wear/dirt is on the back of your leg, focus on getting the inside of your calf in contact, open your hip up a bit wider, and that should correct your toes.

Good luck!
