I was just wondering what everyone's thought were on spurs. I've never used them before, and I'm still not quite sure how I feel about them.
I'm currently riding a horse that's not very forward, to put it lightly, and his owner had suggested I use spurs. However, I've never thought them necessary in all the time I have been riding...
This horse is coming along quite nicely, though I have to use my whip more than I usually do. He was very dull to the leg when I started riding him however, and that doesn't seem to be going away. Obviously, I don't want him to get dull to the spurs as well, so I'd obviously use them sparingly but... I'm just not very comfortable with them.
