That's interesting, Supermane. I would have figured that they wouldn't allow them over fences but would on the flat, though I have seen them in over fences classes.

I think it's hilarious that they think that any other martingale EXCEPT the standing martingale is unconventional. Seems a little bass-ackwards to me! haha

Yeah that's what I thought too, Stormy. Looks like all they do is link the reins together...

Drew- It's used so that the reins won't flip over the horse's head.

Irish Martingales are mostly used on the racetrack . It should prevent the reins going over the horses head in the event of a fall.

For your information - types of martingale

Running martingale
Standing martingale
Combined martingale
Grainger pattern martingale
Irish martingale
Pully martingale
Market Harborough or German martingale
False martingale
Bib Martingale

Not to forget that the Chambon and De gouge also fall into the martingale family

Think thats most of them .

I have made for customers

Running , Standing , Bib , Irish , False and Market harborough

The only ones I have experience with are the ones used in most english disciplines: Standing, Running, and German. So, thanks for explaining the Irish to me. I had no idea what it did!

That's interesting that they call the Irish one a martingale. Doesn't seem like it has the general function of the martingales like a running or a standing. hmm... Learn something new everyday!

The Irish martingale does act as a martingale should the horses head be thrown up beyond a certain point . The martingale moves into the neck area and gives the rider some downwards leverage , but not much .

Yep Nutty has it right and so does Stormy about the Irish Martingale although over here in Ireland I have never heard them being called and Irish martingale. My dad used to be a jockey and when I was young I asked him what it was called and he said some piece of leather that stops the reins flipping over a horse's head lol I later learned that it was called an Irish martingale.

Kind of like what we in the U.S. call Canadian bacon is just called ham in Canada.
