Yeah. I was wondering that as well. I didn't know it was connected to it. I was tacking Sunny up on my own and had someone help me who wasn't a helper out there but she said, she knew about martingales I do not think she knew she connected it to the throat latch. When I did see it I mentioned it to my Trainer who also said, she didnt see it. It wasn't noticable in lesson when it was noticable in pics.

Even my parents noticed it afterwards not in the lesson. Yeah another mistake but it happends.

I find it hard to believe it wasn't noticeable during the lesson but it was when you were taking pictures. If your trainer can't/doesn't notice tack that is so obviously put together wrong I think its time for you to find a new trainer.

I am not finding a new trainer. It wasn't noticed from me until after I got off my horse.
Shes a great decent trainer thank-you very much.

My point is any "decent" trainer will notice if your tack is so obviously put on wrong.

You are correct. No doubt but when its been correct every other time except maybe the martingale was a little tight at one time well then its not an issue.
I have ridden horses beside this horse where the tack was correct. I did not notice until after the lesson.

It doesn't mean she is a horrible trainer. Just means she needs to pay attention more better. I am planning on talking with her about that.
