If your top wants a riding crop, it is not that difficult to obtain a new one so having one handy already probably saved you a trip to the equestrian shop or the wait for the parcel by mail
My husband is not as afraid of my equestrian whips and crops as much as he is afraid of my fine collection of rattan canes and me wielding one (which is quite frequently) can instantly improve his behaviour as it is a hint of what he can expect if his behaviour is not up to my high standards.
I also have a couple of lochgelly tawses and one particular tawse, he dreads as much or more than the canes. That one particularly is very thick and very severe and I don't employ it except for very rare occasions but it certainly strikes the fear in his heart. I use the thinner tawse ( about 5 mm thick vs the 10 mm thick one) more often on his botty and the thicker tawse is reserved for very special occasions.
