[RC] Hackamore with martingales - Amy Cieri

Anyone use this combination? Is it safe or not acceptable? I have a gelding who can't use a bit and goes well in the Arabian S hackamore. He likes to do the arabian head toss and gets the reins flipped over his neck. When he's excited or annoyed he will throw the head up too but doesn't travel head high. I don't need the running martingale to keep his head down but I'd like it for keeping his head out of my space when he gets a bug up his butt. I have taught him a head down cue but that falls by the wayside in certain situations.
My motto is "less is best" but after a serious black eye this weekend, I need to explore another avenue. Any suggestion is appreciated.
