    SlideStop, I have no aversion to spurs, just have never ridden in them much. I did use them for G Man when I was trying to get him to remember how to move off of my leg for a side pass for instance, I was just wondering. I usually don't ride with spurs or a whip, but that is lack of trust in my abilities to be effective with them, rather than any moral or other objection

    LOL, it looks like one of those things where it takes 1 lesson to get the basics, and the rest of your life to actually get it all down pat

    I just might....convince me
    If a 14.2 Arab will do....Snipper is out of commission and Beau is just plain to tall, I think....nearly 16.3

    No worries, didn't think you did sorry if it sounded that way.

    One lesson to get hooked and the rest of the time getting it all put together for a whole run. There is so much more then what you would think. That is part of the fun of it.

    I never rode with spurs before reining......now I don't ride without them.

    I found it very confusing in the beginning. It took a while to remember all the different subtle cues. Put on top of that the whole ordeal of having to give up contact with both hands (H/J WAY too long...)and steer with one hand (REALLY TRAUMATIC!)... And then there is the whole question of "where do I now put this other hand I am not using so that it doesn't look like I am either holding an imaginary cup of coffee, or that my bra strap broke and I am holding up the boobies. I still have not figure that one out.

    I think I need lessons again.......
