A girl who keeps her horse where I keep mine and who rides with me uses a crop, right?.
Nothing wrong with that but today we were jumping and as her horse is quite young & new to jumping(he's an ex-racer), He kept refusing and several times instead of encoraging him or nudging him, She smacked him very hard with her crop (he had lines where it had come down). I was taking pics and I got one of him looking terrified and her with the whip coming down.
I tried talking to her about it but she ignored me.
Do you guys have any ideas on how to help me out?
And what are your opinions on whips/crops?
