And if you let go of the crop when your horse runs off with you, it will start swinging around and making the horse go faster

But then you could very easily grab it again. And I'm not sure if its going to make the horse go faster.

I'm not saying it won't happen, but it doesn't seem very likely to me, that's all.

I never stick the loop around my wrist because I need to switch hands with my whip every time I change direction! I just tie the loop on my crop around the handle so it's out of the way.

One time, I decided to ride without a crop. Horse decided he was going to be lazy, so I had my instructor hand it to me. I took it, turned my attention to figuring out my reins, and accidentally threw the crop into the dirt xD

Then the first time I rode with my new dressage whip, I put it on the ground while I was lengthening my stirrups. Horse moved to stand over it, and proceeded to wee all over my nice new whip!

Odds are it is a withered green on top and a sickly carrot orange on the bottom....maybe even went by the former name of .....Percy ??

Spyder... you are a big meaniehead! Picking on me day after day after day! Maybe it is flat on the bottom and has 8 little legs stuck to a big squishy gooey carrot hoarding glob!

I never put the loop around my wrist just cause it bothers me, and I like to be able to drop it when my horse is speeding off with me. I always hold it in my right hand unless I'm having particular trouble getting Dakota on the right lead of if he's not going to the rail.

riding crop

riding crop/bat

We've already seen examples of lunge whips and dressage whips

bull whip = indiana jones whip

stick!


I have used the stick very successfully. More of an extension of my hand for ground manners. It's very handy to poke a horse in the butt to get it to move over and also poke them in the chest to move back, I use the same pressure as I would my hand.

They are by far the cheapest!!!
