English Riding Spurs For Training And Competition

English riding spurs are a riding aid that helps you signal commands to your horse to move forward or side-to-side. They are useful for many disciplines that require timing, finesse, and subtlety in communications. Many organizations have different rules about design and use.

There are various styles of English horse spurs on the market today that all serve different purposes. Traditional round-end English horse spurs have a small ball on the shank that gives a mild jolt, while knob-end spurs have blunt-edged squares for stronger commands. Modern roller ball spurs are often the best for sensitive horses or introductory training. Prince of Wales spurs are commonly used for hunter/jumper horses as they have a flat end that stimulates impulsion. And for dressage, swan neck spurs limit leg movement while delivering gentle but decisive communication. Contact our customer service team for expert assistance if you're unsure which style is right for you.

We supply English training and show spurs for novice riders up to leading professionals. Depending on your style preferences, you might order spurs made of polished stainless steel that gleams in the show ring, blackened steel that blends with riding boots, or engraved German silver that adds elegance to your presentation.

Don’t forget to purchase a pair of English Spur Straps.

Frequently Asked Questions About English Spurs

What are English spurs?

English spurs are metal accessories that attach to the rider’s boots at the heel with leather spur straps. Spurs are a useful aid in providing your horse cues to move and turn. They work as an extra aid to add to your leg cues.

How do you use spurs in English?

English riding spurs can be used in addition to your leg pressure when asking your horse to respond to your commands. They can be a useful tool in reinforcing your leg cue, especially for strong-willed or resistant horses. Spurs in your training program should be used thoughtfully as one of the communication tools, in addition to leg, voice, and hands.

Do spurs go up or down?

English spur buckles are worn on the outside of the boot, with the tail of the spurs pointing down.

Which spurs are most gentle?

A simple round-end spur with a blunt tip provides the most gentle communication aid. It is useful for riders who are new to spurs and horses who only need mild reminders.
