    I not only ride with one, I carry one with me when I'm out. The only time I ever had to use it was when I made a horse move for me. He didn't like it, pinned his ears and went for a chomp (right at my face level). You bet you butt he got got the crop across his cheek, chased down the pasture and back, complete with me yelling and flapping and my mare thinking it was a hilarious game (usually SHE'S the one chasing horses away.) After that he moved if I looked at him sideways. Had I not had it I might have less face than I do now ;)

    I have one while riding for the occasional reminder, but I rarely need it. My legs and feet are more than sufficient for the most part, but it's come in handy a time or two. Honestly it's more valuable to me on the ground, but at this point it's habit to have it, and like I said is sometimes convenient when my leg isn't enough.

    I carry a crop sometimes. Diddly is your typical lazy sport horse, and sometimes he just needs a whack behind the saddle, just once, to get him going. It keeps him going for a couple of rides, then he forgets, and goes lazy again... And so the cycle continues ;)
    But I always think one smack behind the saddle is kinder than ten hard kicks!

    It really depends on the horse. Lesson horse I don't need one for her, she's mostly easy on the leg even on lazy days.

    The other horse I ride, I need one. He's lazy, and need to remind him about leg cues.

    However, if I ride around the area or trails it does not matter on the horse. I always bring a crop with me.
