Question Spurs What size?

I am thinking about getting spurs for my horse. The only problem is i don't know what size to get. How do you figure that out? Do you go by shoe size? If so, i wear an 8 or a 8 1/2 size. Do spurs fit on the ariat terrain lace riding sneaker? What kind of spur should i get?

Well I don't know how to answer that because when I get spurs I try them on in the store to see how they fit my boot haha.

But do keep in mind the smaller the rowel at the end of the spur sometimes hurts more then a larger one.



You can always do a test run to see how they feel by rubbing them up and down your leg while wearing them.

I wouldn't get any type of roweled spur personally. I use various types of ball spurs. I have some very short spurs that I use just as a "wake up" reminder for my horse. The best way to do fitting for spurs is to go and try some on. then you can order them over the internet for a discount.

much like these in various lengths: https://www.saddler.co.uk/prodpics/r...spbe_large.jpg

rowels are gentle when used properly. Do you feel like you really need spurs?

My horse is sort of lazy. So maybe spurs would help?.. i don't want ones with rowels on them.. just the ones that have bumps on them. i guess.
