I have found that the wearing of boots when training slaves is more effective if I am wearing spurs on them. i have a nice collection of spurs for my western as well as my english dressage boots. My newest acquisition of spurs is shown in this recent photoset of me. There are 44 spokes on the rowell on these Chilean gaucho spurs which protrude 4 inches or 10.16 centimeters. I would like to find someone who can file them razor sharp. However, I have been told that if the spokes hit the ground as you walk, they will start to sharpen. These spurs are worn on either my dressage riding boots or my cowboy boots.
