Best spurs I have ever owned!!!
I had been looking for a better pair of spurs for a long time. I needed a solution to not have to carry the whip because my TB is not a huge fan of it. These spurs were the perfect solution. If you have a horse that is really jumpy when you use the whip, these are the spurs for you. Not only do I get a better response from my leg, but they also reduce spur rubs. I HIGHLY recommend these.

Great for a Sensative Horse
I have a hard time with spurs, since a lot of the horses I ride are thin skinned thoroughbreds, and traditional spurs leave marks in their sides. I love these spurs! I've had mine for a few years now, and I don't feel like I have them on - which was proof enough when I hopped on my just broke gelding with them and he didn't mind them at all - and I can use them on even the most sensitive of horses with no issues! I wish I had gotten mine engraved, seeing as how they have managed to find themselves on the boots of others at my old barn, but they have always found their way back to my tack trunk :)

Lower quality that expected, plastic feels cheap and the metal seems a bit thin.

My gelding is usually nicely in front of my leg with a conventional spur used sparingly; with this one, I felt like I had no spur at all on. Not sure why but he did not respond to it at all. Plus the plastic end feels kind of cheap, as if it might break easily.

I like these spurs because they give me a little extra when my horse needs more encouragement but they aren't too much for him. He doesn't respond in an over the top way, and he has with all the other spurs I've tried.
They work, but the plastic is cheap looking so I am a little disappointed in their appearance. I think I will buy the Stubben soft-touch spurs next time around.

Cheap Looking Plastic
A nice, soft spur. The horses like them (because they can get away with a liiittle bit more) and I can rest easy knowing I won't accidentally goose them. I like to put these on my kids with pokey ponies and A/A who need a little more oomph. The plastic looks kinda cheap. They sure aren't HS spurs, but they serve a purpose.
