Dressage Whips

Dressage Whips

A dressage whip acts as a supplemental aid for a rider to use to encourage a horse to go forward, sideways, offer increased engagement and similar intentions. Light taps on a horse’s hindquarters, barrel or occasionally a shoulder are not intended as punishment, but rather to support the aids that a rider executes with his or her legs, seat and weight as necessary.

A typical dressage whip measures either 43 1/2" or 47 1/2" long, although some can be found at 36" and 39" long to suit small riders or small horses. A dressage whip is meant to hang down just behind the rider’s leg and to be used with light taps. To this end, it usually offers some degree of flexibility in the shaft, which can be made of an engineered composite material, fiberglass or plastic. The shafts are covered in an abrasion-resistant material that can range in color from black to a sparkly design.

The long handle of a dressage whip can be made of braided leather, a grippy synthetic, composite materials or even a gel—all designed to provide good hold. The handle, often topped by some sort of cap, can be a classic shape or formed ergonomically to fit a hand. The tip of a dressage whip is called a lash, and it is designed to facilitate a light tap or a tickle. The lash is factored into the overall whip measurement—an important factor to consider if a rider intends to compete within USEF rules. The cost of a dressage whip depends on the materials and craftsmanship involved in its design and fabrication.
