Spanish influence is evident in these elaborate but delicate Mexican spurs. Draping the nickel horn of a fine ladies saddle made in Carlsbad, New Mexico, it’s obvious that the feminine gender enjoyed ranching activities much like their male counterparts. South-of-the-border horsemanship was superb, the vaqueros’ heavy roweled spurs mostly for show. The beautiful tooling of the russet leather, and the butter-soft, tufted, padded seat would surely have enhanced any lady rider’s pleasure.
