Ebay. That is where I get most of my stuff like that. Great place to buy rope halters, too.

A carrot stick has a hard fiberglass portion about 4 to 5 feet long with a whip like end on it....

The stick part is used to massage the Horse for positive reinforcement and the hard fiberglass part also makes it easy to use a directional device in training.

Parelli and Clinton Anderson among others use them in one of their training methods.

Would you believe I get excellent results with a very thin willow about 4 ft long. It's maybe 1/4" thick at the "handle". Nip the teeny branches of and voila! The thin tip will "sing" with quick short wiggles. Dressage whips are fairly inexpensive and if you want the rope attached just remove the end piece and add the rope. Dressage whips are 4' long and much lighter than the carrot sticks. If the pup chewed the rope, just buy cotton rope at most big hardware stores.
