    Don't forget your rein stoppers!

    Just wanted to remind everyone, new riders and old, to use rein stoppers with their martingales!

    I was distracted today, and didn't realize the bridle I had been using had no stoppers. I put a martingale on though.

    Naturally whatever bad can happen does happen, and the ring of the martingale got stuck on the bit. My poor horse went running backwards in a panic, and I had to jump off (not very elegantly).

    Thankfully we were both OK.

    So don't forget those rein stoppers!!!

    I wonder if this is what happened to me a couple of weeks ago when I fell off when my horse spooked.....I thought that it was just a spook since it was a really windy day, but maybe the ring got caught on the bit...

    I'll have to check that next time...when I'm recovered from the fall!

    And bit keepers too if your bit has points :)

    Glad you came out of it okay!

    The stoppers keep the rings of a martingale from getting hung up on the end of the rein or bit. If the ring gets hung up that close instead of sliding up and down the rein a horse can panic causing a wreck.
    I don't have a picture off hand but it gives you an idea.
