Re: [RC] [RC] Questions For Trainers - Sisu West Ranch

"...If you are talking about an Arab, beware the trainer who "routinely" uses
spurs. Very few Arabs ever need spurs!..."

While a potential tipoff that a trainer is heavy handed and footed, it is not always the case. I rode with spurs for 30 yeas, and never have left a mark on a horse. They can be a communication tool to allow you to communicate with very gentle, subtile movements. None of my horses "needed" spurs in the sense that they would not listen except to pain, but went well with them.
