This stick and string can be used to help train horses and aid in natural horsemanship techniques. Designed to be lighter weight than most sticks on the market, yet still durable, this stick will not be heavy during extended use for added comfort. The string features a double core that provides the right feel, greater accuracy and added durability. Featuring a black fiberglass shaft, this stick and string has a golf club-style rubber handle that offers a comfortable grip. This training item works as an extension of your arm and allows you to touch your horse while still maintaining a safe distance. Stick features a leather loop on the end for the attachment of the string. Stick measures 48" long and tapers from .44" to .28"; the string is 1/4" wide and 6' long including the popper. Available with black/blue or black string. Stacy covers the proper use of the stick and string in our Ride Safely on the Trail DVD.
