I would like to see any COMPETANT rider who hasnt fallen off...Like Beezie Madden, Ian Millar, Martha Josey, Charmayne James etc etc... so those 3 short videos don't really show anything.
Some horses require more spur then others. Maybe the horse needs a bit more aid to move off HRH's leg.
Horses at my barn have rub marks or have gotten sores from spurs, but how do you know its from being used incorrectly, positioned improperly, or the horse being a lazy bugger that day....
PETA is always going to be there no matter what we (as horse people) do. Rodeo's, show jumping, horse racing (TB/Stbd), polo playing, drag hunts....We could have 100% no injuries and we would still be in the wrong.
