- Spurs make a horse advance, moving to a place it may not want to go, or something it may not want to do. Many times you and I need that push or encouragement to advance to go and love when we may not want to.
- Spurs are to back up the natural aids (the leg, seat, hands and voice) used to control a horse. Sometimes love and good deeds just come natural and other times a spur is needed when the norm it's effective.
- Spurs are not to hurt, but to transmit a signal. Spurring and encourangement should not be used to guilt others, but to trnsmit the signal we must be about loving others and serving them.
- Spurs aren't used by novice riders, one must know how to handle a galloping horse. You must know how to spur and encouage people and the key is knowing who's life you can speak into and challenge and who's you cannot.
- Lastly just for fun..."Don't squat with your spurs on" Will Rogers.
