As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Another great innovation in spurs!

The Stubben Soft Touch spurs feature an extremely smooth gliding, stainless steel roller end! A perfect spur for the horse that just needs a slight encouragement. Top quality German stainless steel.

  • 20mm or 35mm neck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pony recommends these! I LOVE these spurs, but more importantly, my horse is so much happier with them than Tom Thumbs.  He is the laziest QH alive, and with these spurs he goes forward but with far less annoyance.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I thought stainless steel didn't rust? I guess Stubben's does... They started to pull my horses hair after almost 2 months. I don't think the quality is that nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can be used in Rated USEA Events! I am so excited! I love my roller stubben spurs, even more so since I found out from the USEA that you can use these in Rated events! And in particular I mean the dressage phase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite spurs!!!! These spurs are the best! My horse loves them and so do I! He used to get irritated when i used my flat ended Sprengers. I had a small rounded pair that just weren't enough. The Stubben Soft Touch are effective but not annoying to my horse. We are having better communication now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spurs I've been very happy with these spurs! I've had them a long time and they've held up very nicely. I love the black sides as they blend in very well with my boots. They seem very gentle yet get the job done (I think my horse responds better to these than other roller ball spurs!). They seem very well made. I'd definitely recommend these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful spurs! I got the 20mm spurs.I purchased them because my horse can get sensitive to spurs at times but with these he never seems to be bothered. The rubber helps then stay in place and they are just enough aid to keep him moving forward but gentle enough to not bother him.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for many horses I like these spurs because they have enough "oomph" to get the horse to pay attention to the leg, but the rollers prevent any rubs or insanguination. I ride 6-7 horses per day, and I can use these on any of them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spurs These spurs are gentle enough that my easily offended arab doesn't mind, and high enough in quality that makes me happy to wear them for schooling or show. Recommended!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Spurs GIve me some extra length that my short leg needs and don't hurt my horse's sensitive skin.He is responsive to them but they don't run. I am happy with them

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Spurs! I LOVE these spurs! The black rubber makes them look sleek against your tall boots and they are very easy to fit. Also, the soft touch is great for horses with a sensitive coat or for the inexperienced spur wearer. I will never use other spurs again. Just what I needed! Thanks Smartpak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives the right amount of 'go' I bought the longer version, have a quiet leg with a sensitive mare and find these spurs to be very effective in subtly reinforcing my leg and encouraging my mare to be very responsive without annoying her with sharp prodding. I don't know how the little rowels contribute to this, but believe the length and roundness create a great 'hearing aid'. Having never been ridden in spurs before, my mare was a bit 'swishy tail' at the canter for a few days, but with a slight readjustment on my canter depart aid, she is performing beautifully with them. The results are even quieter cues with faster response.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Good fit and great value for the price - they are sturdy and well made. Gentle, yet effective.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfefect Spur I have tried so many spurs on my mare for dressage. They were either not long enough or just to much poke. She would kick out or ring her tail at any spurs I used forcing me to show with a whip. I had a pair of nob end western spurs she went fine in but I couldn't show in them. Then I found these! They are so great, I can give a soft touch and even really push her when I need to with out any distraction or getting upset.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice spur good purchase. Never tried the covered arms before--nice. Spur is soft enough not to cause my sensitive mare to think she is being attacked but enough to give her some more incentive. --EXACTLY the combo I was hoping to get with this purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Spurs Fantastic quality and workmanship. Worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more spur rubs! I bought these for my thoroughbred who gets spur rubs very easily. I am so pleased with these spurs as they do not leave a mark and elicit a nice response from the horse. I recommend these spurs for all types of horses. I bought the long and short neck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Spurt Good spurs - soft on the horses, gets the job done, and doesn't slip down your boot. Worth the money you pay for these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite spurs I'll admit, I don't like poking my horses with spurs. I feel mean, and I worry I'll mark their coats. But, I need them, they have to listen, and sometimes NOW. And then I found these. I love the rubber coating, they don't slip on my boots, and they barely show. The "business end" leaves very little damage to the horse's skin or coat, which I love, yet gets the message across. Doesn't seem to pull or break the hair. I'm ordering a second pair in the longer neck length. I've had several friends order them after trying mine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have a lot of spurs as most of us do. I decided to spend the money on these and I am glad I did. I got the short neck ones and I really like them. They are solid and well made. They are a great everyday spur.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Spurs Love these spurs. Well made, and I have received lots of compliments on them. Just enough to make my mare notice without too much pressure. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spurs! I love these spurs! I really like that they have the black rubber around the spur, it makes them more grippy, and stand out less on your boots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I bought these spurs, I purchased them from a small tack shop while in South Carolina. There, I was able to get both the spurs and spur straps for what SmartPak is charging for the spurs alone so the value was great for me. However, after hearing how the plastic rollers have a tendency to fall apart, I'd rather pay for these now than continually paying for spare rollers.To the spur, these are great. I am fairly tiny - under 5'4 and under 100 lbs so sometimes it takes me more to get a response out of the mare I ride than it does the others who ride her just because I'm so much smaller. As I started progressing with her, my trainer advised me to look for a spur that would give her enough of a reminder to listen without making her angry. These spurs are great for that. Most of the time just one little, soft touch with them gets a response. There have been times when she's needed more and I've been able to get more out of the spurs without feeling like I'm stabbing her in the sides with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these spurs! I really like these spurs. I have tried other roller ball spurs and these are my favorite. They don't feel flimsy, but feel like they have a nice gentle, almost springy touch on my horse. He seems happy with them. Good value for a very useful spur. I like the rubber as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the trick! Great quality, fit, and just enough to get my horse to understand what I am asking without overreacting (thin skin!).
    Date published: 2011-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very, very nice!!! These are great horse just needed a little bit more direct pressure but I didn't want to get some big spurs with fairly sharp points. I also ride bareback a lot and I was afraid that if I got western spurs I might accidently jab her with them. I don't have to worry about that in these spurs and I know that it won't hurt her if I loose my balance and go to fall...hasn't happened yet but I know they won't hurt her. :) They are expensive but I think they are worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful spurs I love these spurs - they're gentle enough to not cause rubs on thin skinned horses, but there's still enough there that you don't have to do bizarre contortions to use the spur. I was worried the rubber would make them tough to put on and take off, but that's not at all the case. I am very pleased with these spurs!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Sensitive Horses I love these spurs, they are just enough to remind my sensitive mare of my leg aids without pushing her over the edge. I chose the shorter neck (20MM) and they are perfect. Very well made, excellent Stubben quality (a little on the $$$ side, but, I expect them to last forever) and I have had no problems with neck width, but I have small-to-average feet/ankles/heel areas.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spurs - English or Western I got these spurs for a 4 year old Quarter Horse I'm training. I have never needed spurs on any horses until I met this guy. He does not move forward with leg pressure so to help him feel my leg aids, I wanted something VERY mild since I'm not a fan of spurs. These work wonders with him. They get a little dirty on the ball part from his sides, but it wipes right off. I even use them on my Ariat Western Bomber boots and they fit very well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Great! I haven't used these spurs yet (my boy is double half-leased for the next month or two) but they look great! The spinny part glides smoothly, so I know my horse won't object as much as he usually would. They were a little pricey for my budget, but $40 for spurs is to be expected, especially for a name brand. They are constructed with good quality materials and it shows. I am glad I went ahead and spent the money for them.
