I agree with everyone for different reasons. I do think whether or not to use a martingale strongly depends on the rider. I don't know if I am experienced enough but I have used martingales. Also almost all trainers use them here also as the training aid with young or green horses. Blu just needs a little more that most to get him started and I think he will be great after some work! Thank everyone for all of your input. It has helped me in many ways! :-D

Equina, that makes sense :)


I have always associated martingales with english, so it makes sense that training fork would be the western version.

Blu,
Please let us know if you worked your horse in a training fork/martingale and how did it work out for you? What were you trying to correct?

i have to disagree with you there. maybe an english rider or two might say that but the majority are against it. theres prob about the same percentage as there are of anyone in any discipline who sees using aids to MAKE horses do things as ok. as a rule though dressage is not about harsh gadgets. its all about training and proper training
