Spurs are an invaluable tool for cueing and guiding your horse. To get effective use from your spurs they need to be positioned functionally on your boots.

1. Spurs should rest on the spur ledges of your boots.

2. Spurs should not be placed so high that they ride on the heel counters or so low that they ride on the heel bases of your boots.

3. The bands of the spurs should be adjusted so they’re very slightly wider than the heels of your boots. This will allow slight movement to occur. The slight movement is important when cueing your horse. In addition, spurs that are so tight that they can't move on the boot will end up hurting your feet. Spurs that are too loose will slide down on the heel bases of the boots and may slip completely off.
