What are spurs used for when riding? Earning the spurs.

Riding spurs are primarily used to refine the aids in higher lessons in all equestrian disciplines. If you touch your horse's stomach with the spurs, it tenses the abdominal muscles through a reflex. When used on one side, the horse should step forward with the hind leg. When used on both sides, the horse should ideally shorten the entire abdomen and thus arch the back. This tilts the pool, which is a big step towards the assembly. "You have to earn spurs first!" Many riding school students have heard this sentence. The reason for this is that an unbalanced rider comes too quickly with the thorn or wheel to the horse's stomach, or uses the spurs permanently to propel the horse forward. This leads to a blunting of the aids and thus to an increasingly energetic horse. You should only use spurs if you are already sitting independently and your thigh can rest quietly on the horse's belly. In addition, you should be able to feel when which leg moves and how in order to be able to use the spurs in a targeted manner. So spurs are used as an aid to refine and to support - not to drive an impulsive or insensitive horse. If you are still learning to keep your horse at work pace or if you have a very energetic horse, the controlled and targeted use of a whip is more suitable. Young horses should not be ridden with spurs either. In the basic training the horse should first have understood the aids of driving rider's legs.

What is the difference between thorn spores, spherical spores, wheel spores and button spores?

The four most common types of spurs are with a pin, wheel, ball wheel or button. Almost all riding spurs are made of stainless steel. Here we show the differences:

  • Spurs are the most frequently used variant next to the wheel spurs. The mandrel at the rear is most often offered in lengths between 15 mm, 25 mm and 35 mm. The mandrel can be beveled or rounded.
  • Button spurs or spherical spurs have attached an immovable ball to the end of the mandrel.
  • Wheel spurs & sun spurs have attached a moving, rotating wheel at the end. In the case of sun wheel spurs, there are also spikes on the wheel, which can be more or less pronounced.
  • Ball wheel spurs are available in horizontal and vertical versions and have a freely movable ball in a fixed suspension.

In addition to these types of spores, there are other variants such as gooseneck spores, hammerhead spores or roller spores. You don't see these variants that often. Gooseneck spores have an upward shaped mandrel with a soft rounded end. Hammerhead spores are, as the name suggests, shaped like a hammer in the end. At Roll spores it is another related spore type of wheel spurs. At the end you have a movable roller that slides horizontally on the horse's belly. No matter which riding spurs you use, with all of them you strengthen the thigh aids. Your rider's leg should therefore rest on the horse's belly.

Are wheel spurs sharper than spurs?

Here the opinions differ, as with almost every question about the sharpness of a piece of equipment. The answer is: NO! Because the spur is only as sharp as the rider uses it. In the case of wheel spurs, the larger and more blunt the teeth, the more harmless they are. In contrast to thorn spores, wheel spurs slide off the horse's belly more easily. It should be noted whether the wheel is mounted horizontally or upright on the spur. Due to the up and down movement of the heel, the classic wheel spur with vertical attachment is particularly suitable for sliding on the stomach. With a thorn spore, on the other hand, you apply targeted pressure to a small point, but don't slide off so easily. Since all spores are used for refinement, careful handling is advisable. Improper reinforcement, such as constant tapping with the riding spurs, dulls the horse.

Spores also need to be taken care of!

To ensure that the spores are used correctly, they must be cleaned regularly. This is particularly necessary for spurs with moving parts so that they can move unhindered. If the wheel stops turning, it becomes very uncomfortable for the horse, especially with sun wheel spurs. Thorn spurs and any variant without moving parts should also be checked and cleaned regularly. If the surface that comes into contact with the horse's belly is no longer smooth (due to dirt or even rust), the spores can stick to the horse's skin and cause uncomfortable chafing.

And what length must the spurs be?

The length of your spur depends on a few factors. If your leg is very long, you should also use a longer spike or gooseneck spur. This will prevent your leg from becoming restless or from pulling up the heel to use the spur. If your horse is sensitive, very short thorn spurs or button spurs are suitable. You can use these very specifically with small, gentle impulses. No matter what length you use for your horse - the principle "As much as necessary, as little as possible!"

How is the spurs attached to riding boots or ankle boots?

The best known type of fastening is the seat belt spurs. This is with the Spur straps attached to the riding boot and can be easily buckled and buckled. Straps come in many different versions, such as simple leather or with a glitter buckle. Another variant is the plug-in spur. This is attached via a small hole in the heel of the boot. The stop spur is a fixed attachment that is firmly attached to the boot and cannot be easily removed.

Spores of Sprenger, Busse, Stübben or Waldhausen.

There are many suppliers of spurs and spur accessories. in the Lepona.de online shop you will find spurs of the brands SprengerStubben Busse and Waldhausen. Which brand you choose is up to your taste. Because spurs are no longer just plain silver. Rose-colored spurs, black metal or even spurs with brown spore protection are increasingly finding their way into equestrian sports. The manufacturers also offer matching spur straps for spurs. These can be made of leather, synthetic leather or braided synthetic fibers. Here, too, you will no longer only find classic black straps with silver buckles - colored spur straps or buckles with rhinestones are becoming increasingly popular.
