If Toes Creep you out Don't LOOK!
My husband has accused me of the good and the bad, and the ugly on this blog. This definitely falls into category two and three. Everytime I ride a distance over 25 miles the toenail on this foot falls off. Makes me wonder what will happen if I attempt a 50! This toe is slightly longer than my big toe and I don't know for sure what the pressure point is that is causing the damage, but this is the fifth time this toe nail has fallen off ☻.
I ride in Ariat All Terrain Boots, and use the Easyride caged stirrups. I'm suspecting that this toe is for some reason pressing against the stirrup cage, or somehow getting jammed to the end of my boot.
Anyone have a cure for toe nails that fall off....? ~E.G.
