Could someone show me what that would look like? I can find a picture on google...
I don't have a good competition picture where you can see it. Either there's shadow, or my jeans came over the top, or whatever.
I do not wear spurs. I only use the really large, thin rubber bands (for competition money runs only) so that they will break if I fall off. I know they break, because they will often break just trying to put them on and stretching them over my boot. Since I do not wear spurs, I put the rubber bands around the front of my stirrup, and behind the back of my boot. With spurs, you could hook it around the spur, and then up and over your toe (not actually around the stirrup).
In this photo, I just have the rubber bands around my stirrups. They are not around my feet because I wasn't running!
I found this picture with a Google search: http://www.sportimg.org/wp-content/u...-racing-12.jpg
On her left foot, you can see the rubber band going over the toe of her boot. Which means it is carried under the boot and stirrup, to be looped on the spur behind it.
In this photo, she also has on rubber bands. Barrel Racing! | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

All of them are over the toe, and around the stirrup (or so it looks like it must be). Which again, is different than how I do it because I don't wear spurs so I have nothing to hook it behind.
