View Full Version : Custom Crop/Whip Manufacturer
Jun. 29, 2009, 12:46 AM
I am thinking of getting a custom whip for a friend for their birthday (so he stops using mine all the time!) :)
I was wondering if anyone can give me any recommendations? I did a search on Google, but you can all guess what those results look like. I am looking for something that will have two colors and has a nice heavier feel in the hand. Jumper-style crop.
If nothing exists I will have to get a plain old brown one, but I would love to treat him to a custom crop. Thanks in advance if any of you have a secret little place!

Hey C, there was a thread on this topic in this forum some time ago.

SmartPak has Fowler's Custom Jockey Whips. They also mention that other options are available in addition to the ones available on their Web Site. I also recall a place in England that also makes them. Naturally, the lead time on any of these items would be a number of weeks.

Before I forget, Fleck Crops are great quality and they have many colours and types that you don't see very often.
I know that Dover's carries some of them.

Bit of Britain will do custom Jockey whips which are a little heavier in the hand and are definirely more jump style. They generally take about 2-3 weeks to come in from BoB.

This company also has unique crops/bats.
Be aware, though, that any custom anything is going to be pricey, make sure it's a GOOD friend! ;)

I think Malvern Saddlery does custom whips/bats/crops but anything from them is not cheap. But they also have some gorgeous in stock bats and whips, check out their website and catalog, they always have one of a kind items.
And as already mentioned, Bit of Britain does the racing bats which look nice.
