Snap-the-whip is a game, not an actual whip.
Guess it's kind of old-fashioned but it was played with a line of kids holding hands and running after the leader. Sudden changes in direction at a dead run usually resulted in the last kid in line going airborne and being flung off the chain. Same principle applied to the sled rider at the end of the long line (except for the airborne part).
That sounds much better! That would be great fun! Now just to get a sled for when it snows!
Hopefully she'll take this in her stride like she has everything else. Not many horses can be dragged out of a field after 8 years and hauled round the country, showjumped and had all sorts of nonsense thrown at them without any problems (bar the whole bolting thing lol) .
