You mean a quirt?

Barrel Racing Riding Quirts: Horse Tack Supplies - Horse Clothing and Saddles for your Horses - BareBack Pad

Over and Under: Leather Over & Under Whip - Smith Brothers

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

Yup that is what I ment lol.
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...

Hmmm. I was refering to the one with the leather on the end not the rope. But which one works better?

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.

^There you go. Apparently there are :P

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.
