[RC] Judicious use of spurs - Alison Farrin

Yes, generally mine prefer being cued with a spur to being thumped on
with a heel! 


"...If you are talking about an Arab, beware the trainer who "routinely"

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
spurs in the sense that they would not listen except to pain, but went
well with them.
