The Collegiate Flat Standing Martingale is an elegant choice in standing martingales, that will stand out in the show ring. Matching the fancy stitching of many hunter bridles, this quality English leather martingale will look terrific on your horse! A standing martingale is used to keep a horse from getting his head too high when jumping, and even on the flat. It is more restrictive in one sense than a running martingale, but it is possible to use a standing with less experienced riders. This is because the use of the running martingale is influenced directly by the steadiness of the riders’Êhands, where the standing martingale is attached to the noseband and not the mouth. When properly adjusted, the standing martingale should rise up between the horses’Êfront legs, able to touch the throat latch of the horse when pushed on, after it is attached to the noseband of the bridle. If it is too loose, it is not very effective and can be dangerous as it is fixed to the head and could potentially catch on things. If it is too tight, it is unfair to the horse, and often dangerous to the rider, as a horse may fight the restriction that it places on him. Martingales should only be activated when the head comes above a natural height of carriage. The Collegiate Flat Standing Martingale has beautiful embroidered detail on the vertical strap from the base of the chest up to the nose.
