I currently don't use spurs. My horse when I got him had real power steering and I rode mainly with my legs and hardly used my reins. I have had him four months.
The guy who I bought him off used spurs on him, he was a professional horse man. Now my touch control power steering (legs) is not quite as sensitive. Is this to do with the fact that I don't use spurs. I'm very gentle with my hands and he has a very soft mouth so I want to keep it that way. A friend of mine a canadian rancher did say when I got him I needed spurs. Any thoughts guys?
