Riding Whips & Crops
Dressage, schooling, lunging, eventing and riding all have their own types of horse whips, let us help you decide which one you need – Dressage whips are used as an aid, not to hurt the horse. They help the horse rider ask for a little more from the horse when undergoing a certain discipline and are long enough to touch the horse’s back end without the rider letting go of the reins. Lunge whips are used to direct the horse in a certain direction and in pace. The long lash is not used to inflict pain but can be used occasionally to make a sharp crack, enforcing your command. A riding whip, that often known as a riding crop is used to back up the leg aids and sometimes as a discipline measure when your horse is not behaving or when you want a little more speed. Show/eventing whips are often short and stiff often used in formal showing events. At Anything Equine we also have a range of reflective and attractive fun horse whips for children and specialist jump bats and show canes.
