Do you ever wonder if the people who buy “equestrian” supplies actually own horses? If those whips and other horsey items really are for equine pastimes or whether they are going to find their way into the bedroom?
What exactly is a lunging whip, for example? Sure, with the saddle and all you might think it really is something to do with horses but hey, it might be a “spice up your marriage” kit for someone who needs the saddle to practise their dismount. Or something like that.
Reminds me of that old saying: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but whips and chains excite me … (or something like that).
