I HATE my coaches

My coach for riding and softball are telling me to take it easy and to rest my foot but when I do that I get worse.My mom tells me to just try and walk and run on it but it hurts I have been limping around the barn and my trainer saw me and told me to tell the other but I didn't and the other got mad at me and said I'm not being safe because the window is open and I have one foot in my stirrups and the other hang losse and apparently that isn't ok because I should not ride like that idk but I hope softball is better tomorrow.⚾️

Horsesnuggler12, I'm sorry your foot still isn't any better. I don't know a lot about riding but maybe your coach is right about testing. It seems if one foot isn't staying in the stirrup you could potentially fall. Sometimes injuries or the cause of pain takes longer than we would like to heal or improve. I had four surgery once, and what I expected to be a 6 week recovery turned into 12 weeks. Try and stay off of it as much as possible. Hugs & prayers your foot will improve soon. πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Horsesnuggler12, did you have a doctor look at your foot? I'm wondering if you have a fractured bone. I had on in my big toe area, and waited several months to get seen. It made it very difficult to be on my feet. They make walking bolts you can buy in some pharmacies that would provide more stability for your foot. Could you wear one for a few days and see if you get any relief?

Horsesnuggler12, if you are training to ride in shows such as equitation, hunter/jumper or dressage, you must be able to ride with BOTH feet in your stirrups. If you train with using no stirrups at all, it will be easier as you will not need to put as much pressure on that other foot when you do put it in the stirrup. I wish there was a way to make it better for you. I have RSD/CRPS and its horrid. However, when I ride (pleasure only) I always have my stirrups adjusted for where I need them but rarely use them. Hope you can work something out to get your legs strong enough to where you don't have to worry about it. {{{Hugs}}} πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»
