Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - Swivel and Lock Stirrup System

If you rode western, I would reccomend you try these. They're apparently supposed to relieve knee and ankle strain.

I Twisted my ankle back in the summer at camp and while doing a Christmas play. So that may have something to do with it. I had never thought to relate those. Thanks so much! I'll Try something my mom uses for her sprained ankle and test it out during my Monday lesson and see how it holds up.

I will warn you that if it was a very bad sprain, the pain may just have to be something that you have to learn to live with.

I sprained my ankle badly about 9 years ago and I still have trouble with it hurting and there is nothing the Dr can do for it .

It's true!Sprains are brutal,way worse than breaks.Although I must say that dislocations are definitely the worst.Once all those ligaments,tendons,and cartilage get damaged,it's sometimes impossible to get it back to normal..

Sorry I couldn't be more help.
You could tell me I don't want to go to the doctor again, LOL. It never ends well for me

I had the same issue riding english with one ankle. I tried these stirrups-and it helped a lot. THis is just one variety. THere are several out there, but these are reasonably priced.

Well, for western riders, I would suggest getting your stirrups turned (there is a sticky about it at the top of the tack and equipment section I think) or get a set of pre-made stirrup turners like what was posted by WesternBella, and keeping less weight on your feet. I used to ride with a ton of weight on my feet and my knees and ankles would always hurt within just a short amount of time.

Agree totally. I tried a saddle that didn't have them turned-took it back and bought used. Really uncomfortable.

I get ankle pain all the time, I have brace I wear daily. Used to have to take pain pills before I rode, now with this brace and if I stay active, my ankle normally is fine. But I haven't rode in 4 months and went on a 2 hour trail ride, and I didn't think I would be able to get off, I had so much ankle pain. So try walking/running more, I don't know how fit you are, also what helps me is drinking at least one glass of milk and one glass of V8 a day.

Try dropping your stirrups a hole or two.
