I thought I remember seeing somewhere that there was a length limit on the whip a handler can carry with a mini. But now, for the life of me, I can't find it. Does anyone know what it is, or does it vary from association to association? I just need to buy a new whip this week and don't want to get one too long Smile

I don't recall what the limit is, but most people use one of the shorter dressage whips available on the market.

LOL @ PK... A LOT of the AMPS people down here use dressage whips (& even longer ones than normal too in some cases)...

Dont know why people need whips/canes longer than the length of the pony!!!

I personally use a cane that is plaited leather (with brass top) over a fiberglass base. Tis strong, but light. Would be approx 60cm.

I only carry mine as I have stallions, so I can just give them a tap if need be to get their mind on the job. I dont use it to stand them up or anything.

This is exactly why I want one Very Happy I've found Horseland has a nice one on special for $9.95...its 100cm long. Too big? I'm just having trouble finding shorter ones and I don't have the money to get a cane (as I'm spending it on the Carrington bridle, LOL!).

Mine is a 100cm cheapie dressage whip (coz I very rarely use it, only bought it because one of my foals needed a light tap on the bottom because she had a tendancy to be stubborn in workouts, but she outgrew that problem). I definitely wouldn't get longer than 100cm, it felt a bit too much sometimes.
