I do like the texture applied here, gives it an oil painting effect, a cracking shot Chris.

Mick - found this bit of info on the net :-

A hunting whip is not precisely a horse whip, though it is carried by a mounted rider. It has a stock about the same length as a crop, except its "stock" is stiff, not flexible. On one end of the stock it has a lash that is several feet in length, on the other end it has a hook, which is used to help the rider open and close gates while out fox hunting. The hunting whip is not intended to be used on the horse, but rather the lash is there to remind the hounds to stay away from the horse's hooves, and it can also be used as a communication device to the hounds.

He is carrying a hunting crop which always has a 'hook' on the end. Perfect for opening gates, pulling back undergrowth etc. and always carried by hunt servants. A super shot.
