I had bought this as a replacement to my original carrot stick to which my horses were used to. I had no issues lunging them until I bought another cheapo to fill in while I waited for the original to come in. It was like I had to start all over again. Maybe they sensed my distrust in the cheapo almost like having a substitute teacher ha ha... Any ways, there is nothing like the original and if you are reading this to know if you should invest in this tool, it is worth more than every penny. But beyond that, like any tool, if not used properly is an instrument of destruction. Head over and check out the videos. THATS where the real training begins.
I thought it slide back together so I could carry on my saddle. I like it.
