Fleck SuperFlex Dressage Whip
Good training aid
My trainer suggested I purchase a long dressage whip that I can reach my horse's hip without having to release a rein. Perfect for schooling my lazy horse. The handle does not have a knob and I felt I might have an issue of dropping it but it is long enough that I can readjust it way before losing it. Hope it will teach me to keep my hands closed. Perhaps a good training aid for me too. I am a fan of this brand of whips due to the flex and quality workmanship.

Very nice all around dressage whip
This is a very good, sturdy whip with a great weight ratio from top to bottom. I purchased the 110cm but wish I had bought the 120 cm. I am riding a 16.0 thoroughbred, training-first level, schooling 2nd. The most amazing benefit to ANY whip, however, is the simple presence in the rider's hand in my experience! Amazing how the energy comes from behind when they know you've got it in hand!

I had never ridden with a flexible whip before until I discovered my trainers', and I loved the abililty to use it without moving your hand from the bit/rein line. I have a sensitive horse that needs me to be consistent with rein aids while reinforcing leg aids with the whip. This Fleck is perfect for this!! When researching what to buy, the reviews on this site were also VERY helpful. After comparing other sites & prices, your product was the best price and it arrived quickly!! Excellent craftsmanship, excellent performance.

Fleck's are the best!!!
I own three fleck whips. I love them so much. They are easy to grip and lightweight but it's their flexibility that will keep me coming back. I just took a private lesson with a very accomplished rider/trainer/instructor and he took my whip away from me. While he was holding my whip, he started to discuss the passage movement. While he was talking, he proceeded to bend my whip in half, back and forth, trying to demonstrate the movement of the horse's back in the passage! Thank God it was a Fleck whip otherwise it probably would have snapped in two.

Love this whip
My trusty Fleck dressage whip recently 'disappeared' and has not made a reappearance in the past couple days.
I have been borrowing from the communal whip rack and what a difference a whip makes.
I miss the light weight.
I miss the perfect balance.
I miss my golf club handle that is just the right grippiness and size.
Normally I am not one to spend extra on something that is basically the same as other products (before I met this whip I would have thought, really, how different can a whip be?), but if my beloved Fleck stays missing I will be ponying up the extra cash to replace THIS whip specifically, because it is so much better than anything else out there.
