When used correctly, riding crops and bats can be used to reinforce natural aids. Sometimes, when training green, lazy or dominant horses, natural aids such as the seat and legs are not very effective at encouraging a horse to move forward or even step over laterally. Gently tapping a crop, which is considered an artificial aid, can help encourage a horse to move as requested and respond to natural aids more quickly.
Typically, crops and bats can vary based on the rider's discipline and show regulations. No matter the type, style or size you prefer, you'll find the equipment and artificial aids you need at Horse Tack Co.
