    Merry Christmas to me!! I bought a hunt whip today, so now I need to find a quality thong to go with it. Where is the best place to find a thong?

    I'm guessing that Victoria's Secret isn't the right answer here?!?!?

    Think there are some B & D or S & M sites that might have just the thing.

    Try these guys. http://www.northrun.com/ I know they say they are not a direct retailer, but we buy stuff from them all the time. Great folks to work w/ and prices are much better than most. Saddlery Liquidators could probably hook you up to. Happy hunting!

    Bartville Harness makes a nice thong (three choices on length) and much more reasonably priced than others. (717)529-6992 no webste as they are an Amish run business but they will either take orders by phone or you can request a catalog and order by mail.
    "pack in!"

    I was just at Horse Country Saddlery yesterday (Thurs)....they had a bunch of thongs starting at $79 I believe...kinda' clunky looking at that price.

    I suggest checking out Ebay and the English Ebay too!

    Mike Murphy from Australia makes really nice kangaroo thongs. You can even get them in different colors if you want.

    I think it's under "around the Farm" or "Off Course". I'll go searching if I get a minute and post here.

    Default Best Thongs

    I get kangaroo thongs from a guy named Ad Beekman in the Netherlands. He is very nice and does nice quality work. Last one I bought was about $105 including shipping. Depends on the exchange rate. He has a choice of lengths and white or natural. I paid him with Paypal. He communicates well and ships quickly. Best deal for real kangaroo I've found.

    Just email him for information at:

    Set youself apart from the crowd, ride a paint horse, you're sure to be spotted

    You can even get your hunt colors! I had a full whip made for someone with beautiful gold and purple in our colors. It was stunning! The kangaroo is so strong, too.

    Default stiff and dry thong

    once I opened the package I found the leather stiff and dry
    a cup of needs-foot oil and rubbing alcohol 50/50 with the thong into a zip lock
    bag
    flip occasionally for several days, drain, dry, install
    smooth and pliable ever since
    more hay, less grain
