    Default Vespucci Standing Martingale

    Just wondering if anyone has the Vespucci standing martingale and if so, how did the sizing run? I have a 17.1 dutch warmblood with fairly long neck and I am not sure if I should get him the horse or the oversize length.

    I have two martingales that are horse sized and one fits him (and older Crosby) and the other one is too small (beval) so I am not sure what size order in the Vespucci.

    Thanks!

    I got one five years ago, so not sure if they've changed.
    But I can say that I switched it from a 17 h TB to a 15.1 hand TB and was surprised that it seemed fairly short.
    Granted the tall guy had a shorter neck, and the short one a longer neck. But martingale still seems short.
    Do they make a larger horse version? Perhaps a dealer could measure it for you.

    I have one of these. I use the horse size on a rather short-necked 16.2h DWB. It works for him... but only because he isn't blessed in the length of neck department. Were I you, I'd probably consider the oversize martingale.
