You mean a quirt?

The over and under is going to be quite a bit longer than a quirt.

I looked on those websites yesterday and they just cost too much. I did find one on ebay for $8.50, but I was just seeing if anyone had a cheeper on on here.

Ah. Yeah, that's about normal. You can make your own over and under out of lariat rope, but I don't know if there is any guides or anything...

The synthetic nylon ones work great, and they are cheep too, about 10$. Have you looked at your local tack shop? And then you can get the colors to match you and your horse.

I made my own over and under whip by just getting a cheap lariat and put leather on the end. You can find a crap load of directions on the internet on how to make them.

Please enlighten me...What is it FOR?

Monty Roberts (I think!) had something called a WipWop - basically an over-priced bit of soft rope, to use instead of a whip.

I have never seen a Quirt! Name makes me smile!

Is it for using like you could use the ends of the reins to slap the horse? Or am I very mistaken.

Just curious. Always keen to learn about new things.
