paddocks with good ankle support?
I have old ankle problems and flexing my ankle too much leads to some pretty significant pain. I'm using an ankle brace, which helps some, but it could be better. Vetwrap worked better to immobilize it for longer rides, but that adds up at 3 long rides a week.
Any advice for good comfy boots that would give more ankle support than my Dublin Venturers? I'm doing mostly longer trail rides at a trot and canter, so am out of the saddle a good bit posting and standing in the stirrups. Maybe the Mountain Horse ones that look like the Ariat Terrains? I tried the Ariats on and they don't come up high enough to offer any support at all.
I can't wear regular lace-up paddocks without them hurting my feet, so I've gone for zippers of pull-ons recently. But they don't seem to offer much in those styles that would give much stability to my ankle and would also me comfortable for long rides.
