The History Of Cowboy Spurs
Americans love affair with the Spur began with the Spanish, dating back to the introduction of the spur to their continent by the Conquistador, Hernando Cortez in 1520. In early history the size of the rowel could be up to 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
For generations, these items have been constantly modified to adapt to the individual needs of the Cowboy. Cap guards, tie-downs, jinglebobs and rowel guards were all invented and added because of the need for increased safety and for the better use of spurs - and sometimes just for adding that something special to the design.
