My ankles tend to hurt really bad when I ride. Do you know any exercises, stirrups, etc. that could help?

I had pain in my knees and ankles. I got recommended Flex-On stirrups. And I must say that they really have helped. I no longer get any pain in my ankles and the pain in my knees has seriously gone down.
Flexi stirrups. Like normal stirrups but have a chain with a rubber facade on the outside. Usually quite cheap and are amazing. I like them more than my friends free jump stirrups which cost 5 times as much
I’ve heard freejump stirrups are amazing & help this problem!
Try lengthing the stirrups a bit
Hello Hannah 🙂 I had this problem before and I bought flex on stirrups it really helped! I also work on my general balance with a lot of no stirrups work and on the position of my feet when I was riding (I use to point my feet outward)
