Whip or No Whip?
Which do you prefer?
Using a whip to control the horse beneath you?
Using natrual ways to get the horse going.
I personally believe that no horse deserve's being whipped. Sure, some people just give a small tap and stuff, I'm not criticising anyone who does use one. I just don't like whips....
What do you think?
(No Fighting over this topic, no answer is the right answer, it's your personal choice)
I think a crop is a perfectly acceptable means of giving leg aids where the rider is not able to give strong enough aids with their legs.
I personally dont use riding crops but if used properly I dont have a problem with people that do use them. I will throw a pair of spurs on if needed
I'm all for crops being used if the 'natural' way isn't working. I don't mean abusing the horse with it though.
It depends on the horse I am riding. I use it sparingly when I do carry it.
At the moment I don't ride with a crop, but usually when I do, I give the horse a tap when they're being lazy and not doing what I ask.
I'm fine with people using them as long as they don't whack the horse or anything.
I've never ridden with whips or spurs. I'd rather go down the road of figuring out how to make my horse want to do what i want... I guess more the training side of things as opposed to the 'results, now!' side of things. My horse I have now was lazy as when i got him. It was simply a matter of teaching him that moving forward off a cluck and a squeeze was a lot easier.
I've never used one, but i think if they are used properly then there fine.
I use a crop, but I don't like to. If I can avoid using it, I will. I refuse to wear spurs, though. It's all just personal preference.
