We have all observed the evolution of spurs over the last 2 years. The interchangeable spurs have made a big splash on the riding circuit. These spurs allow the rider to not carry a multitude of individual spurs for different horses. Instead, the interchangeable spur ends provide all the spurs you need. With different spur-ends, you can easily switch back and forth between different mounts. Whether the attachment mechanism is magnetic (for example the Mandtis Spur Set) or its screw-on (for example the Makebe Spur Set), changing spurs has become a lot easier than before.
