    Default teeny tiny spurs

    Hi all, trainer has a pair of very small and blunt spurs which are great for my daughter. Unfortunately trainer's daughter needs them on her pony and I'd love to find a pair of my own. Any idea on what these may be called and where to find them? they are much smaller than standard POW spurs, barely anything there but a vertical ridge on the back where the shank would be.

    I have a pair of those. I think they're called Tom thumb spurs.

    Here's a pair on Dover: http://equestrian.doversaddlery.com/...de=SITE&srt=12

    its even smaller than a tom thumb....maybe it's a rounded tom thumb. I had never seen them before.

    That's almost what you are talking about, I think.

    saw those, that's not quite it, probably not enough for her. They have a tiny little vertical ridge...just enough to do something, but very good for beginners. I think I'm just going to get the rounded tom thumb unless someone finds something else interesting. I've tried justforponies.com; beval; smartpak; dover etc.

    Gotcha. Well, I know these aren't exactly the same, but would give a tiny bit more without going as far as a tom thumb: http://beval.com/Products/3-Teeth-Spur/0043000.aspx

    This is something similar I found...although I think it's not quite what you are describing...

    Is this "little vertical ridge" on the very back of the spur or offset toward the inner edge?

    Because if the nub is on the very back I think it will only teach her to turn her entire leg out at a 90 degree angle in order to use her leg. I personally have a hate on for mini spurs for this reason but ymmv.

    You can have a pair of spurs ground down (on a grinding wheel) to any size you want. I have a pair of spurs like the ones you are describing, my local saddle repair guy ground them down for me.

    ETA: Ask your trainer where she got her spurs.

    A farrier can also grind the spurs down for you.

    I have a pair of what you're looking for used them for Side Saddle back in the day... I think they are those Tom Thumb spurs... or they might be these from Dover the link below might be what you're after.
