Something else to look at is that boots might be too small or have settled into odd shape at ankle area, especially if they got damp? You might try stretching those out if they are leather with damp newspapers.

And also, socks might be binding you in that area too, or jods/breeches/jeans could be, and since so many things are sewn overseas now? Those fabrics are not being cut right, and the cloth pulls funny, and can cause pain.

Also measuring your stirrups, with tape measure might show a difference between them that is causing this.

You might also be placing more weight on one leg than the other, riding crooked, or your horse could be slightly off in way it is going, and you are relating to that when you ride.

Have you gone to chiro for yourself or massage therapist as it could be you are crooked and need straightening.

My ligaments are messed up in both my ankles, but much less severely in my left one. I only have two options if I want to keep riding - reconstructive surgery, or wearing a foot-to-knee brace. Eventually, I'll need the surgery, but right now the brace is working alright and I can even hide it under my boot if I don't zip it. If yours is something like that, no amount of stretching/exercising/whatever will help, but there are options to help ease the ouch

I have had 2 surgeries on my left ankle for ligament issues and having a pin placed and then removed a few years back, and while my ankle is 'back to normal' I still have issues with it. Anyways, my ankle was KILLING me while riding and then my boss (who is a chiropractor) adjusted it (yes, ankles CAN be adjusted) and it was SO out of place it was ridiculous. Anyways, after my ride today I felt almost ZERO discomfort at all. So, maybe you could try a chiropractor?
