Well I guess since you don't 'feel' like it, it's perfectly ok.

Just remember - those heavy boots will dull YOUR legs and you will not feel the pressure - but your horse still will.

I understand your concern but these boots really aren't that heavy, just a tad more than my uggs. I could force the spurs on them but then they pinch my heel so I'd rather not.

If it works for us I'm not sure why it wouldn't be ok.

But this is in the tack section and if this stops working for us I will post it in the training section.

I've only used them on my hunt boots and had no problem. I would think if they were heated and bent to fit they would stay. What about an english prince of wales type spur? They would bend easier than a heavier western spur, then you could have spur straps.

You know I was going to pick up a pair a few months ago but then when I went back to the feed store when I had the money they were gone :( I keep looking every time I go in there. But I have a few things to order so perhaps I will throw those in there too.

Oh yea and my new saddle I just bought came with some pretty large stirrups so my boot fits loosely.

Well looks like the bf has a job to do today before our trail ride.
yes they stay on good. I don't use them but a fella I ride with wheres them. I've never seen him have a problem and he's never mentioned a problem. He's been riding for over 60 yrs.

Well we fixed the problem

Got the bf to pull them apart enough to get on my boots.

Ps. I have heel straps but they do not fit with my winter boots so I had to use bailing twine as that was all I had available

But now I need new ones for my western boots and my english boots.....
