Someone told me that the limited Edition come with a carrot stick and are called the Parnoodle Hump.

That way the men can go noodle fishing in the river and use the carrot stick instead of....ummmm their...ummm for bait.

How fun! I see this as a good way to explain lateral movements to kids in riding schools.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

The pool noodle doesn't look like fun to me. It reminds me of when I was little & rode broomsticks pretending they were horses, & how it just didn't compare to riding a living, breathing horse.

Haha. Well, I wouldn't fancy replacing my horse with a pool noodle, although it would be much cheaper. I doubt pool noodles need to eat much and one can probably live happily in your closet without incurring the wrath of the SPCA.

On a more serious note, I did find it to be a helpful visual image when trying to get a shoulder-in without overbending the neck.

I'm confused as to how that would help with lateral work?
I would feel ridiculous doing lateral movements on a noodle xD
