Hello I just got a new horse who is fantastic the only thing is he holds his head up higher than I am used to, I rode him today with a running martigale and it had fantastic results and he stopped sticking his nose out while he trotted. He is a Peruvian/Arabian and has a natural high head carriage but I don't want his nose sticking out. But -->
Is it okay to trail ride a horse with a running martingale?
(attached is a pic of him trotting and he is good in this pic but if we speed up or gait he'll put his nose out)
I ride him in a hanging snaffle bit, with the myler/billy allen joint? (it doesn't bend the thing in the middle can spin and the sides move individually)
