A beautifully balanced schooling whip can be extremely useful when used in the education of your horse. When your whip is balanced, lightweight and has flexibility, you can ride more naturally and effortlessly. This allows the focus to be towards your horse, encouraging him to be forward and straight.
Your schooling whip is beneficial when you need to back up a leg aid rather than keep on with a nagging leg, especially if the horse isn’t as reactive as it should be. The correctly used whip allows a sharper response to an aid, without the need to alter your position.
Effective Use of the Schooling Whip is Beneficial
Effective use can give accurate reinforcement, giving improvements to technique as well as confidence and trust to your horse. When a rider has effective communication, the rewards will be harmony and relaxation. Only then can you produce the greatly desired impulsion and cadence to proceed to a higher level of training.
It is important that you are able to ride with your schooling whip in either hand. A hind leg may need more activation or you may be working close to the arena side, in which case you need to be comfortable using the whip in either hand, so that the aids can be administered quickly, effectively and accurately.
