4 feet in length, lighter weight and more flexible than a Horsemans Stick. Rubber Grip handle on one end and red Nylon flag on the other. The flag is made so that it is easier and lighter to handle than a Horseman’s Stick. Feels like a fishing rod. Great to use in moving or directing horses feet, and fantastic for helping horses build confidence and get over their spookiness. We like this because there is no fussing with attaching or detaching a plastic bag to the Horsemans Stick, we can just have our sticks ready for use with or without the string and have the right tools at our fingertips ready to go as the situation calls for it.
