[RC] martingales - Larry Miller

I use a training martingale.  I used it on Maggie cause she flips her head
and I got tired of both reins being on the same side.  I use it on Bay cause
I would wear his face on my face if I didn't.  He knows when it is on and
when it isn't.  I used it on the young horse to help prevent him from
leaning on his bit.  All of these horses wore a training martingale.  I
prefer it to the regular one.  I don't use it if I don't have to.  The young
horse no longer has one since I switched to a bitless bridle.  I quit with
Maggie cause I got adept at getting her reins back on both sides.  I also
use a bitless bridle on her in competition.  I just don't use it now in the
winter since she is 'full' of it!!  Bay needs a bit ALL the time and I
continue to use the training martingale on him.  I believe that I have used
one with a hackamore too.,  No problem.  Introduce it gradually and the
horse should adopt.  There are no set rules, whatever works for you and your
horse is what you do.  Jeanie
