How do you keep your toes inward without rolling your ankle? Sounds weird but if I point my toe inward my ankle rolls out to the side. Anyone else have issues with this?

The FEI changed its stance of toes for females a few years ago, when they realised that a woman's pelvis makes it difficult to point the toe in. You are now allowed up to approx 45 degree angle so unless your toes are way out, I wouldn't worry too much about it!
I have the same problem and it really hurts my ankles, you could try and turn your leg in from your knee but then I end up with really sore knees so that might not work for you either :( I think it might be to do with how your body sits together because I naturally have my toes pointed out in every day life too which sucks
