What is a Running Martingale?:
A running martingale is a type of martingale that attaches via a loop or clip to the girth and then passes between the horses front legs before branching off into two pieces. At the end of each of these pieces is a small metal loop through which the reins pass. The running martingale is held in place by either a neck strap or breastplate.
Running martingales are typically used with rein stops. This is a precautionary action that prevents the martingale from sliding too far forward and getting caught on the bit or bit rings.
A properly adjusted running martingale features about one inch of slack in each fork of the martingale when the horse carries its head in a normal position. When correctly adjusted, the reins make a straight line from the rider’s hands to the bit ring when the horse’s head is at the correct position and the running martingale is not in effect.
