I've been riding horses for going on 11 years now, and I've been playing soccer for 8 of those years. I have pretty badly bowed legs, those of which that I was not born with. I've had people come up to me that barely know me and say 'You must play soccer, your legs show it.' and I've had others walk up and say 'How long have you been riding horses? I can see it in the way your legs move.' I've figured that between these 2 sports, my legs have been formed into how they are currently. Anybody have any guesses which one it is? Also wondering, do these affect my riding? I've been known to have wonderful balance, and ability to ride bareback without any gripping in my legs, but I have insane problems wearing spurs. I can't turn my toes in correctly, and keep my heels down as much as they should be able to go down. Is this from the bowed legs, or is it just me not doing things right?
