Lost too many ends although adorable!
I was very excited to get these spurs to add a little color to my tack however after two rides and very tightly screwed on ends I lost my first colored end. A week after applying the second color end I found them in the middle of our barn aisle, then in my horses stall. These spurs are adorable but the screw ends need to be redone so they actually stay on better. Sadly I've had to use my other spurs now as I just don't trust them. :( My mare did love the rolls though so I'll be purchasing a different pair with roll ends.

The little ball came off the very first time I rode in them. Promptly returned

My daughter LOVES the different colors. We both wish they sold replacements and brighter colors. The colors are muted, but still fun. They do come loose, use lock tight to keep them from falling off. They come with nylon straps, we replaced those ASAP, just don't look as nice. But better than coming with no straps at all.

Not sure all reviewers are reviewing this product!
I bought a pair of the short neck version of these spurs only to have the roller balls fall off immediately like a lot of people are saying. I bought these so that I would have replacement balls for my short neck, and got the added bonus of a long neck pair too. I put one replacement set on my short neck (after drilling the hole a little larger to accommodate these slightly chunkier stems) and a pink pair on the long neck over a year ago. I have yet to lose a roller ball, and when I went to take off the black set yesterday they were on so tight that I couldn't. I've been very pleased, but would just LOVE if the roller balls could be purchased separately, even if it's just black so I have an acceptable back-up if I should ever lose one at a show.
In short, I love these though I don't always want to ride with a long neck, and the short neck version was terrible about losing the original balls. These replacements worked out great for me but with a little effort.

Good for the price
As long as I remember to tighten them before I ride, they've been fine. But they need to be checked between horses/rides too. I lost one during my second ride of the day. I like the price and will just change the color until I lose another.

Very pleased with quality of product and monogram. However, I lost one of the black roller ball sets during my first ride despite tightening before mounting. I recommend using a loc tite product(for screw threads) to keep the roller ball in place.
