    spur rules in general are consistently inconsistent and stupid. I think as long as they don't hurt a horse you can wear whatever and that's actually in the rule, spurs capable of wounding a horse are...

    The only thing I'd like to ad is that neckstraps are commonly used to give an aid to a horse. I pull on mine and my horses stop or half halt. So while it is a safety thing, it's also an aid thing....
