Western Boot Spurs For Effective Communication And Control

Western spurs have been a way for riders to communicate with their horses for thousands of years. They will assist you in sending the right signals to your horse while adding bold style to Western attire. Most equestrians use spurs to aid impulsion, but they can also give precise cues for more complex events. All of this is done subtly, which is often imperceptible to the audience.

We only offer the best Western show and training spurs from FES, Metalab, Professional's Choice®, and other leading brands. Regardless of which type you choose, you will receive a quality set of Western horse spurs at Schneiders. Order all-around spurs for everyday use or get spurs crafted for barrel racing, Western pleasure, roping, trail, and other event disciplines.

You'll discover stunning boot spurs in antique bronze, stainless steel, black steel with silver filigree, copper, silver plate, stainless steel with black satin, antique rhinestone, and black filigree. Some styles have an engraved overlay, while others feature silver florals and other designs. Choose from simpler polished spurs and highly ornate ones, according to your preference.

Frequently Asked Questions About Western Spurs

How do I choose a western spur?

When fitting yourself for spurs, think about your experience level, what your horse needs, and the spur type. Using spurs effectively requires skill, finesse, and your horse's cooperation. Make sure that both of you understand the correct time and place for the use of spurs. Choose your spur based on your communication and correction needs. A rowel with more teeth set close together will provide a gentler cue. Rowels with fewer teeth and more spacing provide a stronger cue and should only be used by experienced riders.

What are the different types of western spurs?

Western spurs come with different rowels to suit your needs. An 8-point rowel with rounded tips requires minimal foot movement to distribute the pressure across a wider area. A 10-point blunt end spur is milder, while other models have a gentle bumper on the side of the heel that's ideal for new riders and more sensitive horses.

Cloverleaf rowels provide just the right amount of encouragement and are also good for beginners. We also have Western pleasure horse spurs, with 10-point rounded tip rowels and a hinged button for easy attachment. There are fancy show spurs with rowel designs suited for specific types of horses and riders with different experience levels. Some styles allow for interchangeable rowels.

How to fit western spurs?

When fitting for spurs, always wear the boots you intend to use with your spurs. Choose the spur size that corresponds to your boot size. The band should fit snugly without pinching and be wide enough to move slightly up and down. The shank length of the spur you choose should allow your heel to make good contact with your horse’s side.

How do you wear western spurs?

Use spur straps to attach your spurs to your boots. The buckles should be on the outside of your boot and can be adjusted for a secure fit. Tighten the straps enough so the spur cannot move around while riding, but make sure your foot and ankle can move and bend comfortably.
