Ah! You got to say it before I did!
The spur is for sublte aids, not rough jabbing. In tempi changes, if you jab the horse, you will not get smooth changes. A slight turn out of the lower leg lays the spur on the horse.....or not.
I always wear spurs when doing higher level work, yet I seldom use them.
