    I agree. The OP's horse is a prime candidate for a correctly adjusted standing martingale. That will deliver the correction exactly when needed, and release the correction immediately when the...

    Back in the old days (sixties and earlier) in formal attire (appointments, Corinthian) classes only running martingales were permitted.
