Spurs and Sitting Trot? Advice Please!
Yesterday my instructor told me I should use spurs on Dakota. Apparently a crop doesn't look good in shows. I have never worn spurs before and I actually have no clue what to look for when I go to buy a pair. So below is a list of questions I have... if you could answer any of them it would be much appreciated!
Do they come in sizes?
How do they attach?
Do they fit on any boot?
Are they okay for wearing when I am grooming and stuff, or should I only put them on right before I get on?
Are there different types?
Any specific type I should be looking at?
Any specific type I definitely don't want?
How would I ride differently with spurs... would I be able to kick still?
Anything else to keep in mind?
Thanks so much in advance. =)
Also, completely off topic, but I need some tips on how I should be sitting the trot. In my lesson yesterday I was trying to do a sitting trot and I was bouncing all over the place! Anybody know any secrets that might help me be more still in the saddle?
Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.
