I've been doing research on running martingales and I'm wondering if anyone has any pictures to explain how to use it and how it looks on a horse. I'm bidding on one from eBay and I'm confused as to how it works. We were told by the 4-H leader to try a running martingale rather than a tie down because of the difference in puling. So....Now were are buying one. A lady friend of ours who trains her own horses says she can make one, but we would rather buy one, we think.... Any help is totally welcomed.
Oh, and we are getting a running martingale for our horse that was trained on one. She hasn't had one on her in over a year so we want to refresh her mind. She has a terrible habbit of bucking when we lope her, especially if we don't use the tie down. We have had her checked out and even have a goat fur cinch on her because of possible allergies. We're thinking its a bad habbit because if we lope her a couple times she's fine and won't do it anymore.
