    Vets around here have noticed a lot more tendon issues with all this CGT footing. There's just no give for the tight jumper turns and if it isn't maintained impeccably I've seen lots of slips....

    Do you wear Spurs? If so make sure the strap isn't pulled too tight as this can also put pressure on the top of your foot. I did this a few weeks ago and didn't really pay attention (although I did...
