    Definitely refinement. Flying changes example- with spurs, I can keep my mare straight and she changes right on cue.

    No spurs, she twists (thinks I'm asking for travers), and changes late. All kinds of stuff.

    My sister always told me that with spurs you can put 'buttons' on the horse- so THERE means leg yield, THERE means medium trot etc. Not sure how much sense it makes, but it works for me :)

    My legs aren't very still, so I don't use them. My horse is so lazy though, and he'll probably just end up with sore. I belive in earning your spurs for the rider AND the horse. If so wont lisen to just your leg, spurs will not help :)

    Sure they'll help. Ask with your leg...They don't respond? Use the spur.

    Eventually they will respond to just your leg.
