I call these products motivators.  They are communication tools that aid in training and in everyday riding as well.

I realize that I cannot compete with the large companies that mass produce sticks and flags.  I do not have a factory with specialized equipment or a crew of employees willing to work for pennies.  But I do offer the best equipment that I can make, using the methods and materials that are feasible for a "one-horse" business.  As with all my rope products, quality is my main concern and I guarantee my workmanship.  You can no doubt find items at a lower price elsewhere but I offer these products so you can get everything in one place to save on shipping, and also so you can support a small American business.
