I have a spur addiction. And the bumpers and knobs are my favorite style.

Any spur is gentle when used correctly.

You can always wrap the rowels in vet wrap as well and make little nubbies :)

This is what I do. No need to buy more spurs if you already have some.

Any spur is as gentle as you make it. It is all in the use.

This. But I like the bumpers for my horses. I do have the ball points though too. LOL Either would work in my opinion

I agree with this! I have rather big spurs, with a long neck and fairly large, pokey rowels. I desensitized him too much on the sides as a baby because I always rubbed him all over, all the time. He completely ignored the dull flat ones. But my horse has never been gouged or hurt with them, I just use them to gently cue my horse as an extension of my leg and he listens.
