    Default Never mind....question answered!

    The Vespucci (plain) raised martingale I recently purchased just arrived. While the leather is lovely, I am perplexed....only the piece that goes from girth to cavesson is raised. Neck strap is completely flat. Is this the norm for them?

    that's odd, I have a Vespucci martingale, happens to be fancy stitched I believe, but it does have the neck strap raised...

    I thought it was strange too. Leather is doubled with stiching but not raised. It was one of those good deals on eBay.....now I know why!

    bummer, sounds like it was defective or a "factory second"

    Apparently seller doesn't know it is a second because description states it is raised on neck. Might keep it for schooling anyway. Thanks!
