After several months of gaining my leg, balance and seat back, I've finally allowed myself to start wearing a pair of spurs with my gelding for refining cues (with a trainer!). I hunted around google images and found a picture that most closely resembles my pair; see below.
My goal in using a pair of spurs is to have a pair that provides more localized/specific contact, but isn't so much that my horse will become dull without spurs (especially considering the fact that I am new to dressage & spur use). My question is: is there a better pair I could be using? My trainer has a neat pair of short-neck rollers that seem gentle but effective. What spurs do you use for dressage? Do you have a recommended pair?
