What are double-sided spurs?
I find "sharp" spurs (rockgrinders or whatever) to be unnecessarily harsh. If you don't use them for general riding, why would you use them for gaming? To make the horsey go faster? Spurs should not be used for speed. Big barrel racer kicks
Should not be used for speed. It's ridiculous--all it does is hurt/wind your horse, slowing him down and making him resentful.
I ride every horse with my gorgeous-favorite-oh-so-awesome custom spurs:
Blunted rowels that still have a good feel to them. I rarely use the spurs, though, even though I'm always wearing them. They are not
use for speed (leaning forward, smooching, and doing a thigh/heel bump accomplishes that), but they are used for refinement of cues. Roll in to move over, bend, loosen up, etc. That
is the intended purpose of spurs, not
"going fast" or "kicking."
