    Yes. Sometimes it works really well to let issues become horse vs. tack rather than horse vs. rider/lunger. I think head tossing/standing martingales are like that vs. using a running martingale...

    Exactly-- which would, IMO, have been the rationale for so many standing martingales in pony classes: a safety precaution for the children which has no effect unless needed.

    I hope you only ride in jumper classes, then. Standing martingales are allowed in hunter o/f classes, all others would be "unconventional." I have, accordingly, never seen a running martingale in...
