Review: Riding Crop

I have a slight confession: I didn’t intend to order this. I have Amazon Mobile on my Android phone and my boredom translated to browsing, mental meanderings, a giggle and catching the one-click order button. I thought the back button stopped it from registering but Amazon are a determined little company and it obviously did, as a long, thin package arrived for me today.

It was cheap, and in some ways it does show: it’s not leather or beautiful silk fabric, but plastic. However, it is sturdy, of reasonable build quality, and was £2.46 plus postage, so it is incredible value for money. It certainly didn’t smell plasticky!

It’s around 2½ feet in length and is a nice weight in the hand. My wife was able to dish out a hundred lashings of the crop and did not tire or feel any strain. Small flicks of the weapon were enough to cause stinging pain whereas a full whack was excruciatingly painful.

Before today, the wooden cane from Bella Louise is the most painful implement my wife had, this crop is certainly more painful and more intense a stinging sensation. I was squealing like a little pig, which doesn’t happen when she uses the leather paddle!

My wife believes that the plastic end would make it unsuitable for use on a horse as it is “too harsh” but I do not know enough equestrian to be able to comment. However, I do believe it is perfect for use on a man’s bottom!

As ever, the proof is in the paddling, so this is what my bottom looked like after 100 of them:
