Best Horse Riding Crops

Updated on November 9, 2010

Horse Riding gives you a sense of power and control. It lets you feel that you are on the top of the world, having control. Insecurities or fears subside and the only thing you’ll think about is moving forward. However, the rider needs to communicate with the horse before moving forward with it.

Using a horse riding crop is one way to communicate with the animal. Some other ways are by using the voice, legs and seat yet the crop is still a good alternative. The crop is never used for hurting the horse but rather to give directions or correct the posture of the horse. Excessive use of horse riding crops shows bad horsemanship thus a caring horseman (or woman) must know how and when to use the said accessory.

Horse Riding crops are usually made with a long shaft of fiberglass or a different material covered with leather or a leather-like covering. One end of the whip is thick and was formed to be the handle of the whip while on the other end is a thin, flexible tress used to signal the horse on what to do.

Below is a list of the most elegant and best quality horse riding crops on the market. Choose the horse riding crop that will surely fit your purpose.

Econo Riding Crop

This very affordable horse riding crop comes with a secure grip, wrist loop and a nylon shaft that will fasten your crop on your wrist so that you’ll need not to worry on losing grip with it when riding a horse.

The main advantage of purchasing this crop is that it is very affordable yet still durable. With this purchase, you get more than your money’s worth. The tip is real leather - which apparently appeals to a certain type of person unrelated to horse riding as they like the leather tip.

Who knew? I certainly wish I didn't......
