    I would be ok just to switch the spurs to the other boot? Or will I have to switch the spur straps to the opposite spur?

    And to tell you all the truth:
    THANK YOU for helping me out. I know everybody has to learn how to use and put on spurs, but I would rather show up to a trail ride with my spurs on right , rather than having the akward moment of showing them off and having everybody 'politely' explain how they go on while they hold back the giggles.

    Just swap the spurs to the other boot should be fine.

    I don't think they're very expensive (no more than the straps you have now). They can be really tough to put on the boot however because they're really stiff. Some people will actually soften them up in steam before stretching them over the spurs lol.
    I've seen people use bailing twine & even wire as makeshift bottom straps.
