Whack her butt when she gets outta line ;-) Just the small size I was looking for :-)
No bend but I like it. Hurts more that way.
I use this to whip my "horse". It feels nice and heavy, not like a toy. Well-crafted, for the price, and will do suitably well for most riding crop needs.
This is great for reaching her bottom while her head is in my lap.
