What I really really don't like about spurs, is that many people use them accidentally. AND I have seen so many poor horses with big raw patches from spurs. You cat accidentally hit horse horse with a crop, & eventing at least has rules on how much you can use it, no rules like that for spurs !

You rarly see a horse with spur marks in eventing though, they do have regulations on what TYPE of spur. So the do have regulations on that.

I've never seen a horse with a raw patch or a spur mark... not to say it doesnt happen... but I've never seen it.

Unfortunately, my mare came with a spur mark on her left side. She is dark bay/black with no markings except for a dime sized white patch on her side from the spurs. They used rowells on her and needless to say, she has never had a spur mark on her since i've had her and I only use the blunt tip 1/4" ones

Nah. Not really. She was off the track for 7 years by then but at 10 years old, she had the muscling of a yearling, a very long and gangly mane, worms, and some old injuries. The man didn't really want horses and he was going to breed her to a Friesian if she didn't sell :O

Poor girl! That would not have been good, being a small TB being bred to a huge draft horse!
