I agree with eventnwithwinston. Running martingale would be the way to go if he absolutely had to have one. A standing doesn't allow him to use his head and neck properly and is probably contributing to his contorted jumping style.

I was going to ask about taking it off, but sadly, Rupert is injured and off work for a while.

Oh no what happened to him?
    03-18-2009, 07:39 PM
Oh, poor boy. Best wishes to him.

Came to get him and Caroline told me was hurt. =[

Bummer that he's hurt :(

I just wanted to add my say here.
I think the way he is jumping in that pic is sloppy but the martingale isnt going to inhibit his ability to lift his legs up is it? Nup.
I like standing martingales allot more then there mate the running martingale. Standing martingales attatch to the noseband, they only put pressure on the nose if your hrose puts his nose up too high, as soon as the horse puts its head down agian the pressure is released, with a running martingale if you have contact on the reins the martingale has contact, running martingales create hardmouthed angsty horses imho.

Nope, Disagree Showjumplife. If your running martingale is adjusted CORRECTLY, then it is not in play AT ALL when you have rein contact and your horse is carrying itself correctly. If its adjusted right, it will only come into play when the horse throws it's head up. If your running martingale interferes with the contact while your horse is travelling normally, ITS TOO TIGHT!!!

Also, of course the martingale is not going to directly effect his legs. Duh. But it IS affecting how he can use his body over the jump. He is unable to stretch his neck out over the jump, which in turn means he isn't using his body correctly, which in turn can affect his leg carriage.

Will have to agree to disagree.. because I've seen what running martingales do to horses even if they are adjusted correctly.

And i've been using one on my arab for about eight years :]

And I can promise he isn't a hardmouthed angsty horse.
