Are these ok? I didn't want anything too harsh, but I didn't want the stubbs? Either. Thunder is stubborn, and we have gone over ground work many times, but he's getting bored with arena work and are also trying to move into the canter. Does fine on the lunge, but in saddle I feel like I'm constantly kicking to get him to move forward, and I don't want him to get used to the whip (plus I don't want to constantly whip him harder than a tap or small whack). Please no criticizm, I know there are tons of people who don't agree with spurs, and I will not be spuring him to death. Just a little extra instead of using my heals. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a worry wart and doesn't want to do anything to hurt my horse. This is last resort since we have gone over and over groundwork and giving to pressure, ect.
Also any tips on using them??
Sorry so big :/
