Dear ridecampers,

I need your combined expertise in some matters.  I have been out of endurance
for about 4 years due to foaling and other issues.  However, I had hoped to
get back into it this year with some 25's and start to shoot for a 50.

Here's the picture.....
my endurance saddle was stolen right out of my yard so until I can save some
money, well, I'm stuck with my old western saddle.  My knees always give out
on me when I ride so I have to wear braces on both legs.  Due to a rather bad
previous injury to my left ankle I discovered today that it keeps caving in
when I ride and won't support me when I post so now I need to find some way to
support my ankle as well as my knees.  I need some suggestions on a GOOD ankle
Next problem,  my transportation has taken to interfering in the front rathr
badly.  I have had my farrier out several times and we have made several
changes to her shoes.  No improvement.  She interferes right through ankle
boots and splint boots.  The farrier thinks it might just be because she is so
out of shape and that as she gets in condition she will gain control over her
front legs.  In the meantime, however, I need to protect her legs while I
train her.  There's got to be a way.  I know we sound like maybe we should
just call it quits but we both love the sport so much, I believe we're
addicted.  She is only happy when she is tractering up some hill and even
though my body is falling apart, I gain such mental balance when I'm out with
her that I just must continue.

anyone got any ideas?????
