In our vicinity, there is a well-stocked race-horse shop, carrying some exclusive gear. The gems this time was two riding crops in matching colors and style: the first is a standard crop with a soft pad in the end. It is extremely agile and strong, but with that leather pad in the end it will nevertheless be something soft about it. It is designed for 200+ full force impacts (her Owner concluded today). This is the Nice One. The Cruel One is the longer in the pic. It is a thin crop/cane of resilience and flexibility that even with the smallest of efforts lands with excruciating power. A twist with the wrist writes a poetic line in the sturdiest of asses. This is the one used for deep taming and serous marking. A tentative session testing its power today left her Owner hungry for more….all in all, a very useful tour to the store.
