How to make a Standing Martingale
Hey guys so recently I decided I would try to use a standing martingale on my pony but I was not sure if it would be worth my money to buy it because there was a chance that my pony would flip and hate the thing so I decided just to make one for test-run purposes. I figured I’d share with y'all :)
So first you take a rein and put it around your horse’s neck/shoulder area and tie or clip it on so it will not tighten up.
If you are using a split rein or you have extra rein, tie/attach it to one of the rings and just stuff any extra rein inside the saddle.
Now for the other side(or both depending on your particular materials) use a chin strap or really anything that is close to it to fasten the neck-rope to the saddle.
Now you get another rein and clip it to your horse’s nose band( just pretend the halter is a noseband ok)
Now slip the rein under the neck-rope and fasten it to your girth at the ideal length.
