Tiedowns & Martingales
Yeah openin up the soap box. I don't think you guys are going to jump on me though.
Just for fun, for those of you that run with a tiedown/martingale, what type of tiedown/martingale do you run in and why?
I rode in my drill team in a loose blue tiedown just because it matched the uniform. We all had tiedowns. They really weren't tight enough to make any effect.
I ran Rebel in a leather tiedown because quite frankly after being smacked in the nose by his head I thought it was time. I also noticed he really liked it though! He started making tighter, smoother turns. Then once I ran him without it and I noticed his turns were better without it too. So whatever floats his boat. lol
Bailey was rode in a german martingale but didn't run in it.
I don't think Selena will ever need one of those, but if I do drill with her she will get a loose nylon one for the uniform purposes.
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
