What different effects do roller balls have vs normal straight spurs, and which is kinder? My horse goes well in spurs when I use them on occasion but goes better in roller balls.

Thank you Cyrine, that is exactly what I wanted to know!
With the roller balls ones you have more chance not to injure your horse since it's rolling but it isn't necessarily softer, I would say that it is more effective than straight spurs ! Some horses might be surprise by the rolling effect and be more reactive. But for sure I guess it's softer on the skin and you have less chance to scratch them with the rolling ones.

Hope I answered your question properly :)
