I saw this word @ Colletta’s Kitchen Sink

Rather than ride through it, she tapped her mare with her quirt and leaned forward.

quirt
kwərt
noun
1. a short-handled riding whip with a braided leather lash.

  1. That’s a new one for me but I’m not surprised since I’ve never really ridden a horse.

  2. I saw that yesterday – good catch Viki. I actually featured the word a year or so ago when I was reading a Western. Nice to see it again.

  3. I knew quirt from a Western I read last year. It’s an interesting word.
