And for non-hunting folks --this is going to seem like a “who cares” question --so skip it —one of the reasons I hunt is I delight in the traditions of the hunt field --so here goes my question:
Cubbing means tweeds, and I have a lovely tweed --all good there, with it I wear New Market boots (canvas upper, brown leather foot, see Google for pictures). With William Tell, my mounted archery horse who moonlights as my hunt horse, I wear spurs.
The question is, do I change my spur straps to brown? I’ve never worn spurs to cub before, so didn’t think about it until today. I doubt I will have time to find brown spur straps before the Blessing of the Hounds Oct. 4 --but will be wearing the correct black/patent boots with my Shadbelly at that, so moot.
Next year’s cubbing would be earliest I’d need brown spur straps . . .so does one match the spur strap to the boot?
