Does riding make my already weak ankles weaker?, I've already sprained it twice since I started riding more (beginning of summer). I currently take three lessons a week. I really don't want to sprain it again, because it sucks and hinders my riding/school. I'm currently elevating my ankle because I sprained it at a show on saturday (I took a funny step out of a trailer tack room). It got a little bigger than a baseball after I had to walk on if for the rest of the show. Sometimes my right ankle aches slightly when I'm riding.
Should I get a brace for my ankle or start wrapping it before I ride? Or does riding actually make it stronger?
