A quirt, or short riding whip, was historically used to urge a horse to greater speed or even used by warriors to "count coup." Now they are predominantly held during traditional dance. Our 18" Northern Plains Dance Quirt is made from mahogany hardwood and adorned with tackwork and a latigo or suede “whip” and buckskin wrist wrap.
Also available as a Crow Sawtooth Style Dance Quirt with Broadcloth Wrap. See related items below.
