SlimStick & Pocket String

Product Description

40% Lighter than popular natural horsemanship training sticks.
#1 Seller - Lighter and more responsive. Designed to be less fatiguing. 

Sick of heavy groundwork tools? Sick of wet, soggy strings? Our SlimStick weighs 40% less, yet has the same reach as a normal stick (Carrot Sticks, Handy Sticks, etc) and is balanced and light in your hand. You'll feel the difference the instant you pick it up!

Compared to any other natural horsemanship or ground work horse training stick on the market, the Horse Education Company SlimStick:

  • The SlimStick is dramatically lighter than a “normal” horsemanship stick & the same length
  • Easier on your wrist, better for precise control & less fatiguing
  • Thanks to tapered design, the stick’s fulcrum is closer to the handle - you have better control
  • Kids can stay farther away from horse than with a “normal” kids stick, they stay SAFER

The Pocket String:

  • Pocket String weighs less than half of what a “normal” string does & takes up half the room
  • Weight difference results in a faster, more responsive tool
  • Because it is a finer diameter, it will have more of a whistling noise than a normal string when used at high speed. You can use that as a cue, or as a further aid to desensitize your horse to similar noises (for instance a lariat).

The Slim Stick's design demolishes the old tool when it comes to it's handling. Because of the way it is shaped, the balance point or fulcrum is moved NEARLY TWICE as close to your hand/wrist as the old stick, which makes it so much easier to maneuver, reducing arm and wrist fatigue, and makes YOU more accurate for your horse. Yet, it still has the solid feel and bounce needed during preliminary education of your horse, or for a horse that needs reinforcement. But it doesn't stop there! We've engineered a new string that is less than half the diameter of the old one, and DOES NOT pick up water, dirt and is snag resistant. The combination of these two fantastic innovations has moves the dial forward in the quality of communication when you are working with your horse(s) on foot.

Why use a SLIMStick and Pocket String for ground work training, liberty or lungeing?

"A stick allows me to reach on either side of the drive line, which is the basic dynamic in moving any type of prey animal around is being able to control in front of and behind the drive line.

Stick and string combined, it is the right length to start your ground work. It is not too long and floppy that ends up getting in your way like a lunge whip would, yet its not so short that it puts you in the kick or strike zone. This tool can take you a long ways in refining your ground skills before you move to another tool.

The awkwardness of the normal natural horsemanship ground training sticks on the market, is that they are very badly balanced, and consequently heavy and heavy feeling in your hand. The SLIMStick's taper gives makes it a better balance, which gives you better leverage. That control will bring less fatigue to your wrist and make you more accurate in your delivery of a signal. It is a tool that I can use as a horse trainer all day long, day in and day out without getting a sore wrist or tired arm." ~ Kalley Krickeberg, Horse Education Company Brand Ambassador, Horse Trainer, Presenter
