Instead of a dressage whip you can just get a long crop. Like this..

Equi-Star Glitter Crop < Crops, Whips and Bats < Horse Tack|Dover Saddlery.

Erika, those are still quite short. You have just 25" (vs 40" for dressage one).

That's true, I'm not a fan of dressage whips, though. You can't really get a good whack from them. I also don't like how they drag along the side of the arena when you're going around on the rail. (I think that is just an Erika problem though).

I would only use a dressage whip for a young horse that needed schooling (or for dressage schooling) for every day riding I always carry a crop which is almost never used on the horse but it is there is I need to immediately back my leg up (Tb occasionally napped when I first had her). Plain black and leather covered and never use the hoop around your wrist - very dangerous.

When I use a whip, I don't want to whack my horse with it. Why? Because it interrupts the horse's movement, possibly the way you ride too as you'll have to change your position. The horse will tense up and its noticeable. If I use a crop, whip which ever I want to use the lightest of touches and get a response from it, not smack the horse with it.

Also, if its catching the side of the arena, you need to tuck it in more with the position of your wrist.

Sounds like a dressage whip for sure - if that's what you are using then that's what I would get - they are really handy to have

The fleck whips - the one posted earlier - are the most lovely whips - they are so well balanced - you can definitely tell the difference when you hold one - all my whips are flex!!!
