Rode in mine again today and found like the perfect method! Ride in a two point at the cater until you can't bear it anymore. Mine are acctually slightly COMFY now!!!!!!! My trainer's daughter had costum boots and the hurt her so much that my trainer stood her in the water trough and made her go ride. They are amazing boots now, but unless I was like crying in pain(and I've gotten close to puking in pain) I won't get mine wet!
