Riding whips and lunging whips

Using whips can help capture your horse's focus, but achieving success with them relies on your sensitivity. It's crucial to use the whip in moderation because excessive use can desensitize your horse to its cues. A riding crop, essentially a slender and flexible tool, serves as an aid while riding. Riding crops prove beneficial for less-trained horses, enhancing the effect of thigh aids. However, even for seasoned and trained horses, a riding crop becomes useful when they don't respond to thigh cues.
