Ironbark Stockwhips continues the long
Australian tradition of crafting fine stockwhips.
Working with Australian kangaroo hide and redhide, Whipmaker Dennis Cherry practices a skill which began
in the latter half of the nineteenth century as the cattle industry
expanded. Early whipmakers discovered that kangaroo hide was an
outstanding material for producing whips, being ideally suited for the
harsh Australian conditions.
There are now relatively few
professional whipmakers producing quality whips in this country.
Ironbark Stockwhips fills this niche
with products ranging from basic 4 plait whips to complex 16 plait
kangaroo-hide stockwhips. Other leather products, such as bridles and
reins, are also custom made to order.
With over 30 years experience in the
business, Dennis is in a unique position to understand the needs of his
customers. Orders can be shipped anywhere in the world, and all work is
guaranteed against faulty workmanship.
For some time Dennis has been interested in Natural
Hoof Care for pleasure and performance horses. He has now become a
barehoof trimmer practicing Equine Podiotherapy. His website is
