Horseman's Flags have been used for years by top horsemen such as Tom Dorrance, Buck Brannaman and Ray Hunt. The shaft is composed of a premium composite fibre glass with a multi-layer epoxy coating and is 44” long. It is highly durable, weather resistant and is incredibly lightweight and well balanced. The handle is made from top-quality high-density foam for a comfortable grip which will not be compromised by sweat or rain.
The shaft and handles are black. The flag material is composed of a poly coated, rip-stop nylon and measures 18" x 20” and is reinforced where it attaches to the flag shaft.
The shaft is long enough to expose your horse to the movement and feel of the flag from a safe distance. The flag material comes in a variety of colours. Individual item weight is 0.2kgs making it lighter to handle than the stainless-steel flags.
These flags are great for a number of uses. In the picture you will see Sally using the flag to help Taylor out by not fall onto the inside shoulder when in lateral flexion.
The flag is also good to use around the horse to help build their confidence with movement. It is best to start off by rubbing the horse as you would with your hand (think of the flag as an extension of your arm). Start at the shoulder and work up to where you can rub with the flag all over at a stand still. Some horses will prefer to move their feet to begin with, this is absolutely fine, if you can be in control of where the feet move - try not to let the horse trot, start at a walk. You may have to start with moving the flag around away from the horse and adopting approach/retreat. If you need help then we advise to contact a clinician in your area.
