Re: katie prices spurs

ok, just seen this post and i have 2 say i hate spurs and whips at competitions, i think if u need to use them then your horse obv isnt ready to compete at the level u are at, they are a training aid, u shouldnt be training at a competition!!i do carry a schooling whip at a competition, but only coz he kicks and i find a tap to the shoulder reminds him that im there and makes him focus, i would never use it in a training capacity!

 

I think they are ok if used correctly and not used to abuse the horse tho......

Re: katie prices spurs

I've seen a video of Katie Price doing a dressage test and to me she didn't look like too bad a rider (made me laugh at th bouncing around though); she's not a professional or anything so people shouldn't be expecting her to be riding as well as Carl Hester and the likes... and I'm pretty sure that Andrew Gould wears spurs when he competes on that horse, so maybe it's what the horse is used to?

 And although I've never worn spurs, but doesn't the sizing thing work a bit like whips? Like the bigger the flapper on a whip the less it actually hurts the horse, because the pressures more spread out? Correct me if I'm wrong though.

and I think they're made out of stainless steel, not iron.
