I'd hate to see what the cost of shipping that would be!

students recently ordered off the parelli site and got 'carrot sticks' with solid plastic loops instead of leather. hmmm

the carrot stick has magical properties that make your horse instantly obedient as soon as you buy one.

Maybe it's majikal plastic.

I have both a carrot stick and a lunge whip. I like both but I will say that when you are desensitizing with the carrot stick my arm gets pretty tired, it's a lot heavier then just the regular lunge whip.

Yep only difference is the price. Not sure why people want to pay extra for somthing like that.

Oh, come on! The prestige of having a little Parelli logo on the loop is SO worth it!

I think it's like what I've heard bikers say about Harleys.... if you have to ask, you wouldn't understand!
