Which hand do you hold your whip in?

I'm right handed but 90% of the time hold my whip in my left, I find it very awkward in my right hand, but seems most riders use their whip with their dominate hand.

Right. 99% of the time. Left is awkward. I am right handed.

Either or, doesn't really make a difference to me!

I hold in on the inside at all times, so both.

It depends on what i'm using for. I am switching hands constantly on my greenies as I ask for different things.

I often ride (dressage) with two whips, one in each hand. If I amusing just one, always on the inside.

Always ride with my whip in the inside hand as well. I need it far more often to cue the inside for something rather than outside.

I think you need an option for those of us who don't use whips - at least on our horses

On my finished horse I use the whip on my right hand. If I have to I will switch, but I prefer not to.

I switch hands and sides of the horses, but not uniformly. I can have the whip on the inside or outside regardless of the hand it's in. It really depends on what I'm doing at the time. I've joked that I should get a second one so I can just have one in each hand at all times.
