Abstract: A self-defense whip having an elongated hollow tube within which is telescopically received a flexible lash, preferably formed of flexible control cable. The tube has a constriction proximate one end and the lash has an anchor at one end which is axially movable in the tube but which will not pass through the constriction. The lash has a weighted tip at its other end which pulls the lash into extended whipping position and accelerates the tip into an arc leading the lash. When the lash is formed of flexible control cable, the whip makes an intimidating, whistling noise as it cuts through the air.
Abstract: A device for use during riding and training of animals such as horses which can be utilized either as a riding crop or longeing whip. The body portion of the device defines a crop having a handle formed at one end and a cracker attached to the opposite end. A plurality of flexible wand elements are nested within the body portion and are telescopically extendable from that end to which the cracker is attached. A line defining a lash is attached to the wand element whose axis coincides with that of the body portion and the cracker is fabricated in the form of a closeable pocket. The device forms a longeing whip with the lash and wand elements fully extended and when retracted the lash is retained in coiled form within the closeable pocket thus converting the device to a riding crop.
