Spurs have been used in horse riding for centuries. They assist a rider in pinpointing their aids, when precision is required for riding complex dressage tests or taking on challenging jump combinations, for example.
It is of utmost importance that the horse’s welfare remains priority at all times. Spurs should never cause a horse pain. Spurs are designed to apply pressure to a specific point on the horse’s side at a definitive moment; that pressure is relieved immediately, as positive reinforcement upon a horse’s correct action. This encourages the horse to become more receptive to their rider’s aids, allowing for improved communication between horse and rider. However, only highly experienced riders should use spurs! If you’d like further advice, Discount Equestrian suggest asking a qualified riding instructor.
