Anyone else wear spurs with their leathers? English or full Mexican rowels? Plated, silver or plastic?

Do they make you go faster too?

No spurs, but my doc's have chains (much, much faster). Never damaged the bike, but they're havoc on the ground effects of my cage.

Spurs...Not that often. Tried them when I was breaking her to ride, but I hung 'em back up to keep her from getting acustom to them.

But if you have to use spurs for everyday riding, keep in mind that without them you won't get the same "getty up" response.

I do use a broken bit, though. She reins fine, but she gets spooked real easy and tends to rear up. So, sometimes I need a little more "whowa" power to make her mind.

Both...as far as spurs go.

But I can't get the little woman to take a Bit, anymore. Turns out it's hard to use the "safe word" technique while wearing a bridle.
