Beling, its amazing what a lovely long Dressage whip can be used for ;)

1. Removing horseflies from neck/face of horse.
2. Itching down long boots.
3. Jousting.
4. Back scratching.
5. Protection. Like a sword.
6. To watch other horses gallop off if they get too close.
7. Flick rugs off rug racks when they're too high.
8. Turning light switches on.
9. Tapping on a window to get attention.
10. Oh yeah.. reinforcement of a leg aid ;)

Haha Duffy, my poor whip certainly gets the itching down a long boot and scratching my back job, probably more than it actually makes contact with a horse's backside!

They're also great on the trails, for pulling down cobwebs right before they hit you in the face

I also use one to scratch my horse's butt after I'm done with work and let her walk relaxed in ring.
