  1. Hey Ya'll!!!! ****Pics added bottom page 1-2****

    Yo, can you refrain from bumping almost every post you make?
  2. critque, please?

    You look nice. Your back could be a tad flatter, but with a greenie that's hard. I can't see your leg over the 1st fence because of the standard, but in the 2nd picture, your leg needs to come more in front of you. I give you props on having your feet correctly in the stirrups

(not saying no one on THIS post isn't friendly, but there are those few HCers that aren't the nicest. So please no one take offence to my above comment) I have a feeling that was directed at me

    The name sounds familiar, is she jumpers or hunters? I might have met her at Devon. Ask her about Andrea Hunt from Black Magic Farm. I'm sure she knows Gail Harrington, the woman who owns the farm. www.blackmagicfarm.com

Yes, it's used to eliminate a horse throwing their head or raising their head up beyond a certain point. I support martingales 100%. Prada tends to "swing" her head up and down when I ask her to extend her canter. No medical issues, it's just a Prada thing. So, should I just let her keep on "swinging" her head when I ask her to move forward at the canter? **** no, I CORRECT the problem. I see no other ways to correct the problem than with the assistance of a martingale, and alas a martingale has fixed the problem. Do you hold your hands still in the canter, or do you go with his head? If you hold still, he may be trying to compensate for the fact that he has no 'give' so he rocks. But back to the main question. Yes, standing martingales are used to prevent the horse from raising their head too far and go above the bit. You would connect the standing martingale loop to a regular caveson - not anything else. But there are also some other types of martingales so I'll give you some pics to help out: Standing Martingale Running Martingale German Martingale No, I move with her motion at the canter. She's to the point now where she doesn't 100% need the martingale for flat, but deffinently does over fences as she's still a greenie. I do dressage with her, and it's not to attractive to see a horse swinging their head up and down at the canter . In my opinion, the martingale has fixed the problem, not masked it.
