Foot pain while riding( western saddle)

My saddle is soo comfortable.. ( I think anyways) but when Posting.. ( I have to post with Sunny as his trot is wacckkyy.. haha.. MY right foot.. towards the arch and outside of my foot starts HURTING sooo bad...

I was wondering.. Does anybody else have hurtty feet when posting? It starts AS soon as I start posting.. and will stop about 10 minutes after Im completely done moving around.. sitting inside..

Anything special people can wear while riding to help cusion there feet??

Cashel makes stirrup wraps that can help relieve ball of foot pain. Foot inserts could help too, and they make WIDE stirrups that many people say helps.

I suspect your problem is because when you post, you are posting from your feet. That's putting too much pressure on your feet and causing your problems. My feet always used to hurt like that when I was riding with my feet braced and all my weight on them.

Try to work on posting correctly, using your core and thighs. Drop your stirrups and work on it that way if you have to.

What smrobs said, plus since it's only your right foot, you are probably leaning to the right and compensating.

Stirrups may be uneven, that boot might be tighter too, and it could also be that you are wearing boots that are too small. Should always measure and fit to the foot that is on same side as dominant hand.

^^^^ Don't overlook boot fit.
I had to give up a pair of paddock boots for this very reason. I'm perfectly fine with a different pair.
