I def agree on the martingale, way too tight and he doesn't seem like he needs it. He might even jump more without it.
Seriously! He's so handy, he's just had a rider on him that isn't a very good rider and doesn't make him take tighter options to fences.
And I know! When I was putting my saddle on him, he already had the martingale attached to the bridle and I could barely get the other end to reach the girth.. It was actually pulling his head down. At the last show, my other friend and I compared the length of his martingale to a shorter-necked horses martingale, and his was actually a good 3 inches SHORTER than the shorter-necked horses! We tried to make it longer, but she never cleans her tack so it was hard as a rock and wouldn't move... He would be perfectly fine without it. It's so aggravating haha Posted via Mobile Device
