I've been riding for roughly 16 years, bouncing back and fourth between western and english disciplines. Last week I started taking formal lessons again for the first time in about 4 years but I've only been on a riding hiatus since last September. My trainer is having me start with lots and lots of standing out of my tack to build my balance up and working towards a strong lower leg and half seat position. Today it caused some concerns
Has anyone else suffered from an ankle that hurts along the outside, think right above that circle bone projection on the outside of your foot, and makes putting weight on the outside edge of your foot seem impossible? I suffered through the workout as much as I could and when I got off had slight trouble walking. If I didn't concentrate on keeping my weight to the inside as I took a step my ankle would practically collapse and roll to the outside. I'm sure I could conjure up a diagram if need be, sorry lol!
Is this just weakness? Would the holy grail exercise of calf raises help? Anyone with any suggestions please!!
