Kid Spurs

Wee\’s been having a time transitioning to spurs.

Her short little legs need a little more effectiveness for Blue to respond to her cues. The kid spurs we have are quite soft-roweled, still, the move from sans-spurs to full spurs proved to be too much of a leap for her. Since she\’s still getting a feel for leg pressure cues she more often poked than pressured, and Blue went from unresponsive to jumpy, not the desired result.

Coach proposed a neat solution I hadn\’t even thought of.

\"\"She suggested I wrap them up in tape for the time being, until Wee achieves a better feel for using them properly.

\"\" I used masking tape, but I\’m sure other varieties will work just as well. You can also try English spurs which have a smaller point to them, but in Wee\’s case they weren\’t long enough to be effective.

\"\"The kid is a lot more comfortable wearing and using them now, and Blue seems to approve as well.

\"\"Besides, it makes squatting on your spurs when you stop for a cat cuddle plenty more comfortable.
