Can my dressage whip be saved?

My favorite dressage whip has lost its tail. Not sure what happened but I really love the whip. Unfortunately I don't know the maker since it was a gift from a person I have long since lost touch with. Is there any way to get a new tail on my beloved whip?

I hope that you can. I lost a gorgeous Dressage whip many years ago in a fire. I have never seen the like of it since. It was made of braided willow wood with a leather bat.

Is it leather? You could try taking it to a local saddlery/tack repair shop and asking if they could do anything for it.

I'll have to double check the material. I have a feeling its fiberglass though.

My local tack shop sells the tails seperately for about $4. Check at yours, you may be in luck. will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ... Explore. Dream. Discover.”

It's fiberglass. I'll be going to the tack shop on Saturday so here's hoping!

As long as the small loop is there, you can replace the popper. My dressage whip uses the same as the lunge whip.

All of my dressage whips have lost their tails. Don't ask me how because I seriously have no idea. One day they have tails the next... tailless. I still all use mine without the tail *shrug*
