How to measure a horse for a martingale?

Are you getting the kind that attaches to the cinch or to the breastcollar?

In my experience they just come in Horse, Cob, or Pony. Not too hard to figure out which one you need. Cob is harder to find typically.

They need to be fitted, not measured. For Chinga you will need horse, you can google how to fit a martingale.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.
