You could try some simple inch or inch and a half long spurs without a rowel.

Shoot, inch long? Them are some long spurs! Mine are only 1/2 inch if that... and were the shortest I could find. I've seen spurs as long as 3 to 4 inches on upper level dressage riders but I'm not an upper level dressage rider and as such don't have the fine leg control that it takes to be able to use such a long spur correctly.

Mine are a 1/2 inch long as well, but my instructor often rides with her inch long pair. If you have good control of your feet there is zero harm in it.

I have ridden with her inch long spurs before though, and prefer them over mine. I can move my foot even less that way. :)

You probably know BB better than I do but IMO if you haven't used spurs before, the shorter, the better. Just to begin with. Once you have control of the short ones you can start going to longer ones.

That's very true...

I use a inch long training spur, for me they work great with all the horseswe have in the barn. It mostly depends on you and how you horse reacts.

So, how have everyone's horsey lives been?

My trainer has been hospitalized for ongoing issues, so I had a lesson with another trainer who was covering her lessons for her... We really clicked and it was a fantastic lesson! The horse I ride is normally rather pissy on the ground, but now we figured out she has Lyme which would explain some of her more recent issues, and now that is being resolved, you can already see the change in her attitude. So if my trainer is unhospitalized by my next lesson, I am going to have another lesson with her and then decide if I should switch or not.

I am also going to look at a new barn, which is a 15 minute bike ride or 5 minute drive from my house, compared to the 20 minute drive to my current barn. This is the main reason I am looking, but it is also more private which is a HUGE plus for me and the lesson horses look great and very safe and sound. They also focus on dressage/eventing which is what I would rather do, compared to equitation/hunters which is what my current barn focuses on.

RANT OVER. If you read that, you are a saint.
