Yard Whips are traditionally used by stockmen in cattle yards, where they want a short whip for close range and quick action. They are also a great length for slighter older and stronger children 7 – 12 years of age. Again stockmen are also using them left handed because of the throttle set up from motor bikes. They are supplied with a half plait ‘stock’ (handle).
The specifications are as follows:-
18 inches in the stock (handle)
48 inches in the thong
25 inches in the fall
Add to this the length of your arm to determine overall reach
