**NOTE: The Boundary Stick should not be used as a whip, or to hit or poke the hind-end of the horse. (If you are close enough to touch the horse’s hind end with this stick, you are close enough to be kicked.) It is not for lunging work, or circling work, or the round pen—it is too short for that.
- It is a shorter, rigid stick that is highly useful when leading, doing groundwork or working close-in with a pushy horse that crowds your space, bites or is otherwise fractious.
- It is also a handy tool to help people that have trouble defining their own boundaries; when using the stick, the horse easily learns where his owner’s space begins and ends.
- The shorter length of the Boundary Stick is also quite useful as a cueing aid, for pointing and directing the horse. It is truly an extension of your arm.
- The bright white makes it easy to get the horse’s attention.
