Ah well, generally whips around my household are unremarkable (and, due to me Actually! Being! Horse! Person!, generally in a state of disrepair). Which is typical for a horse person. I also have various spurs around the house as well but, like whips...not just a purpose but, y'know, they're all different with different usages.
(Which reminds me, my current dressage whip is toast. Gotta go get a legal one. Things Horse People Say..."is this whip legal?" "Is this bit legal?" "Are these spurs legal?" All related to show rules wrt whip length, bit and spur types. Non-legal stuff gets you disqualified)
