As we ask more of Roscoe in training, I found I needed more in the spur department. Mom bought me a set of heavy weight rowel spurs for about $35 from Dover. These spurs definitely got Roscoe's attention and helped when learning new lateral movements. But he seemed to overreact during transitions.
So I started looking at different spurs. Karrigan recommended buying lower end versions of different ones before spending a ton on one kind.
At one point I landed at Riding Warehouse and found the Compositi Hot Spur Interchangeable System for $29.95. One polymer spur with the option of five types of heads: Two Prince of Wales models, as well as a round, hammer, and smooth rowel.
When I received them, I worried about the durability and how well the head would stay on. Well so far, they are great. They fit on all my boots and the change is easy. I admit I put them on upside down by accident. Mom tried them and realized my mistake.
Now I can ride Roscoe in the rowel and then switch to the small rounds for Ember without taking them off my boots. My toolbox has expanded. Definitely worth the price.
