Spurs are fitted to the rider's boot with spur straps. The purpose of spurs are to back up the rider's natural aids to improve impulsion or to give more subtle and precise aids to the horse through the leg. Spurs are also used in some showing classes for etiquette. We stock a range of styles of spurs, suitable for different disciplines and to assist in training.Available in sizes to suit men, women and children, we stock all of the most popular and common style of spurs. These include the Round End Spurs, which is a mild form of spur popular with dressage riders and as the name suggests, has a smooth, rounded end to the shank. Another spur commonly seen in the dressage arena is the Swan Neck Spur, which has shank that goes upwards at an angle before levelling off, to help in achieving precise aids. A spur commonly seen across disciplines is the Prince of Wales Spur, which is a slightly sharper spur, due to it's flat edge. If your riding boots are also in need of updating, we also stock a huge range of long riding boots and jodhpur boots suitable for use with spurs.
