[RC] Weak Ankle (on me) - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Lori Groves tucknsoph@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or 

Dawn, I also have weak ankles due to several sprains over the course of a year 
or so.  Only my right ankle gives out and only when I ride in my endurance 
saddle.  I purchased an "air cast" which is basically a plastic support that 
sits on both sides of your leg.  It's lined with a gel pad and is secured with 
velcro.  It allows for up and down movement, but side to side is not as 
easy...especially if you're wearing a high top riding shoe.  I use it with my 
Ariats.  You can purchase one of these braces from any place that sells 
hospital equipment.  Mine ran about $50, but it's lasted me about 4 years now.
