Spur straps secure the spurs to the boots to aid the rider in commanding the horse to move. Spur straps are worn over the heels, keeping the spurs in place and preventing them from falling off. Most modern spur straps come with adjustable buckles for quick release and custom fit.
Types of Spur Straps
Kinds of Spur Straps include the following:
Nylon spur straps
Nylon spur straps are washable, making them ideal for everyday use. Most have quick release buckles made of plastic and come in standard sizes that fit most English or Western spurs.
Leather spur straps
Leather spur straps contoured. Some have double fasteners to keep them from falling off during fast-paced riding.
Choosing Spur Straps (Buying tips)
Materials: For everyday use, choose nylon spur straps, as they are easier to clean. All you need to do is soap them and hose them down with water. Caked mud and dust is harder to remove from leather spur straps, but they are far more stylish.
