I've recently started riding a horse who requires spurs. I haven't ridden him since last August, so I'm having a lot of trouble getting used to the spurs and riding properly with them. I was hoping several months of building up my leg on other horses would help but now that I'm back on him, all my old problems are resurfacing.
It seems like every time I turn my toe out to use my spur, my foot slips out of the stirrup or too far into it. Maybe it's just that I can't keep weight in my heel when I'm trying to get the spur against him, or maybe I'm pinching with my knee... I don't know. Any ideas? Suggestions?
