hello, i know martingale are for horses that tend to put their heads up.
but i know three kind of martingale
the standing martingale that goes on the noseband
the running martingale that slide on the reins
and the german martingale,
what is the difference between the three? do they just offer different actions? like one would be stronger than the other?
and isnt the german martingale kind of a mix of the standing and running one as you would attach it to the rings on the reins? if so, why would we need the other ones?
im kind of curious cause i leased a horse for a year in france like 6 years ago, and he had a german martingale. my trainer used to switch which ring on the reins it was on depending on the weather, and mood of my horse. he was in his 16ish years but still had the punch of a 5 years old... pretty much uncontrollable in winter as it is really cold in france
the owner used to tell me he didnt like to work when it was cold
