Riding whip and spurs

    These tools will vary, from rider to rider, from horse to horse, and from discipline to discipline. Here you'll find our tips on choosing the right riding whips and spurs for you.

    WHICH RIDING WHIP TO CHOOSE?

    The riding whip is an artificial aid that allows the rider to reinforce the action of his or her legs. It is used more to give an instruction than to issue a reprimand.

    Riding whips should be chosen according to:

    Length

    - Short whip (around 40cm): jumping.
    - Medium-length whip (50-70cm): initiation, trail riding, on the flat.
    - Long whip (110-160cm): dressage.

    Rider

    - Beginner: light whip with a handle and wrist-strap to prevent loss.
    - Child: light whip with wrist-strap, of appropriate length and grip size.
    - Advanced: well-gripping handle, without wrist-strap for better handling.

    WHICH SPURS TO CHOOSE?

    Spurs allow the rider to reinforce the action of his or her legs. There are spurs for men, for women and for juniors.

    There are two types of spur:

    Rounded tip

    - For riders new to spurs.
    - For young, sensitive horses.

    Blunt tip

    - For riders used to spurs.
    - For older, experienced, less sensitive horses.
