Savvy Shopping Guide for English Spurs
English spurs are metal tools that attach onto a rider's boot heel, and function by stimulating a horse to move either laterally or forward. They've been an important training device for thousands of years, conveying specific instructions to the horse and adding emphasis to your commands. The bluntness and size of your spur ends affect how severe your spurs are for the horse. Rowels (small toothed wheels) or balls are utilized on some spur's ends and may be rolled along a horse's side for encouragement.
English spurs with straps are both decorative and functional and are meant for both competitive and casual riding. Englis spurs are on hand in different sizes and shapes (long neck spurs or slip-on spurs), depending on the particular event or use of the spur. Spur straps are available for schooling in a glossy array of colors (some featuring fun bling accents), and other English spurs with straps are made to match the rider's boot leather in the show ring. Equestrian Collections also carries both stirrups and stirrups leather for all of your English needs.
