My hubby's horse has a terrible habit of slamming on the brakes and refusing to move when he's the lead on a trail ride. First, hubby tried kicking him, then using blunt spurs to kick him and nothing....So, I thought I'd get him a small bat to use on the horse..more to make noise than to actually hurt him..to see if that helps. BUT...When I got it in the mail, I realized that it didn't have a wrist loop to make it easier to hand onto during a ride. But...It's blue and glittery and makes a delightful slapping sound when you hit naked flesh with it. So, should I return it or use it as a marital aid? ???
