Damned if I know. I suspect it's a wording issue. I can see why spurs with pointy things on a stalk on the inside would be illegal....they're easy to use incorrectly, aka jab the horse at every stride but the 'Motivator" spurs are quite mild. I've seen them sold as Le Spur.

thats ok! have you taken hard core dressage lessons? that helped me alot. what about a jumping bat? i prefer the sluggish ones, now i can get any type to move all it takes is patience. you will get the ability to move him without spurs/whip trust me. try riding a more sluggish horse then when you ride fella ikt will be easy!
and your supposed to have to turn your legs for the others, its so your not constantly poking them
