Ascot Running Martingale
The Running Martingale is one of the most popular rider aids. It is used to help prevent the horse from raising his head too high. It consists of a 1/2"/13mm neck strap and a second strap, 1"/25mm wide, which is attached to the girth and passes between the horses front legs before dividing into two pieces. At the end of each of these straps is a small metal ring through which the reins pass.
When the horse carries its head in the correct position no pressure is felt. However, should the horse raise its head the martingale will restrict the movement of the reins, which in turn causes the bit to bear down on the bars of the horses mouth. The martingale should be fitted so that the rings are in line with the withers to prevent it putting any pressure on the reins when the horses head is held in the correct position.
Generally used with rubber rein stops, which are located on the rein between the bit & the Martingale ring.

Leather should be cleaned and conditioned regularly to keep it supple and to prolong its life. Here are some useful tips on how to maintain your bridlework:-
i) Always apply leather conditioner several times before using new tack, this will soften and protect the leather before use.
ii) Remove sweat and grime everytime the bridlework is used, using a slightly damp sponge or cloth.
iii) Re-apply leather conditioner as necessary, climate and use effect this, like watering a plant too much is as bad as too little!
iv) Depending how often you ride, you will need to dismantle your bridle completely for a thorough cleaning periodically. This will involve using leather cleaner (not saddle soap) and the re-application of conditioner.
v) Check the stitching and billets regularly, paying particular attention to where the bit is attached to the bridle at the reins and the cheek pieces, any wear should be repaired, or replaced by a reputable saddler immediately.
