In contrast dressage whips need greater length to touch the mount's side while keeping both hands on the reins. A dressage rider must know that the timing of the whip or crop is as important as the use in itself. Equestrian whips also include tools for training aids such as lunge whips. Riding whips in stock come in a range of lengths and styles to suit differing riding requirements. Visit us today.
