    Roughstock spurs are designed for the roughstock rodeo events--Bull Riding, Bareback and Saddle Bronc. They generally have wide bands with long, straight shanks that are offset to improve the rider’s spurring technique. The saddle bronc spurs are made of heavy gun blued steel with a 5° offset.

    Designs were also sometimes added at the personal requests of the Cowboy, and sometimes even done by himself. Many a Cowboy turned his trade to Spurmaker in the 1800s.

    Styles eventually became "Regional." If the Cowboy lived and worked in Texas, for instance, rather than California, the style of his spurs reflected it.

    America's romance with the spur began with the Spanish, dating back to its introduction to this Continent by way of the Spanish Conquistador, Hernando Cortez in 1520. At that particular early phase in the spurs' history, the size of the rowel, (the round wheel-like part) was measuring an impressive, but cumbersome, six to eight inches around! The Grandaddy of all spurs, it was appropriately called "The Espuela Grande," or; "The Great Spur."
