I had a pretty good understanding of martingales before this thread started but I did learn a few things. I had no idea there were so many different kinds of martingales that I won't be using.

I agree with MIE on this , us Brits call Americans ( U.S.) Yanks , which by the way is a hell of a lot better than what some from other countries get called.

LOL!!!!!! Wow...no one has ever called me a "Yank" before! I've only ever heard that term used as a reference to Americans who live in the northern states, by Southern dwellers who are still attached to the Civil War for some reason

I thought other COUNTRIES just called us "dumb americans" LOL

Dumb americans - not at all

Over-paid, Over-sexed and Over-here gets used sometimes or
never in the course of human history has one country had so much power and so little knowledge of how to use it properly is also often said

In general peoples opinions of americans differ from person to person, me personaly I don't have a problem with you over the pond - I would rather have you Yanks to deal with than some mindless moron who thinks that it's a good idea to blow yourself up, or, a certain group of countries that don't seem to care what they do to the planet as long as they make a profit.

HI I use a German Martingale on one of my horses ( Larry Trocha sells them). I am not a jumper so here is a post from another site.:::
The german martingale is my favorite training tool because once the horse is on the bit there is no martingale contact, only straight rein. I do not get deterioration in performance when the martingale is removed the way I do with a standing or running martingale.

They are carried in the Dover catalogue but are quite pricy. I had mine made. I have a nice breastplate and I borrowed a friends german martingale for measurements and took it into a leathersmith. I brought all the hardware in with me. He put 3 D rings on both reins and put clips on either end of two pieces of leather that run from the breastplate through the bit to the reins.

A word of caution though. They are dangerous to jump with because if you are left behind and pull on the mouth the horses head will be pulled to his chest and you could flip over forward. Also if the horse gets a leg though them by itching or something they can really freak out. (The foot through them was unfortunately learned by personal experience. My mare sat down before I got them unhooked

Or the occasional despot that is bent on taking over a continent or two.
