Question Running Martingales - Yea Or Nay?

I've done some research on Standing and Running martingale, now I'd like to know what everyone else's opinion on the use of one is. Is it a training crutch, or is it useful?

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I'm not a fan of standing martingales, but I have no problem with a properly adjusted running martingale. When they're used correctly, they don't come into play unless the horse's head is dangerously high.

So, a running martingale would be good for a young horse?

I use a running martingale on my coming four year old. I haven't needed it yet, but I have it there just in case. I really don't want a broken nose because a turkey flushes from a bush right in front of him. :P
