They come in bright colors. My dressage whip is blue with silver! I could of see in yellow too, but I'm not positive.

This is the price I found on the Parelli website...so, I was technically right. The "brand name" carrot stick is much more expensive. I think my dressage whip and crop together cost $15 give or take.

I'm in awe. $47 was more than I remember seeing a while back.

Each to his own, but if I had to choose between a $47 carrot stick and saddling up for a ride, I'd go with the latter, ROFL!

Seriously, how do the Parellis make ANY money off their merchandise, when they sell knock offs for around 80% less?

Where did you get it?! Blue would look fantastic with Jack's blue square pad and polos.

...sometimes I wish I did WP just for the bright colors. I'm somewhat of an odd ball in the black and white dressage world.

heyy guys... if you dont want to pay the high prices for one (and you arent lucky enough to find one for 7 dollars! ) then just find your dad or husdbands golf clubs and take one and cut the whacker end off and drill a hole and tie a little piece of leather through, or for a cheap flag, tie a plastic bag to the end. works like a charm! lol

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Dover! It's my # 1 for everything (we have actual stores around). I believe it's this one: Dover Saddlery | Fleck Sparkle Dressage Whip .

Hmmmmm......... I thought golf clubs are too sick plus don't you think dad or husband will smack your own butt when they figure out what happened to their favorite golf club??!! I'll rather go with PVC pipe next time - they are $3 in local Home Depot and so much safer....

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

Mine doesn't have Parelli's stamp on it! So it may not work for Parellis.

*Drools over whips*

I so owe you one for directing me to those. I am so getting one.

What about a blind turner? You know, the little sticks you twist to open or close the blinds?

Although I'm not sure my fiance would appreciate not being able to open or close the blinds anymore than husbands and fathers would appreciate stolen (and expensive) golf clubs! LOL
