I was wondering about the Irish martingale, and what other discipline's it is used for.. What kind of events, Ex:Pleasure,Jumping,Eventing,Dressage? Can use them.
Who has used them and what is you're opinion on them?
i dont see how they'd keep the reins from going over to be honest i think it looks pretty useless haha.
When the horse raises his head the "martingale" slides down the reins and so their is less rein on one side of the "martingale" and so it cannot go over the head I have seen them work really well over here in Ireland in racing but I have never seen it used in any other discipline
They're mainly used in racing from what I've seen. Sometimes event, although they're kind of a thing of the past now. They're aren't favored a whole lot because they don't allow for the use of an opening rein.
