How to make a lunging whip??

I didn't know if someone already started a thread about this but.. I know a little bit about Clinton Anderson Fundamentals and I can't afford his training tools, I would like to know how to make a lunging whip myself. Anyone have any ideas?

Welcome to the board :)

The Clinton Anderson "handy stick" isn't a lunge whip. A lunge whip is flexible through it's whole body and has a long string. The Clinton Anderson style stick is pretty thick and solid in its body and then has a string. I think the Parelli's call theirs a handy stick. The no-brand ones are called natural horsemanship training sticks. They're all the same thing, just in different colors!

If you google "natural horsemanship training stick" you will find cheaper alternatives.

Never buy anything that has a celeb name attached to it
They were selling lunge whips at a tack auction we recently went too for $1 each - brand new. Good quality
Check out the online tack stores like Smartpak,, Dover Saddlery, Valley vet

Go to feed/tack store. Find whip section. Pick out lunge whip. Take to register and pay.

If you want a pig stick with a string attached, which is just what 'handy stick' really is, buy a pig stick and attach a string.
