Plymouth Raised Standing Martingale by SmartPak
Nice martingale, happy with purchase!
Very nice and soft leather, cleans up easily and looks nice on w/ matching bridle! The only negative is it runs a little large, the neck strap is very long, although i would still highly recommend this for a good priced, nice looking piece of equipment!

I needed a standing martingale for my horse, but I'm also riding another horse who tends to put everything in his mouth, so I wanted something I could use for both of them that wasn't super expensive, just in case he got ahold of it! This is a much better quality martingale than the price would suggest. It came out of the box dark and soft, and took minimal oiling to get it to be nice and supple. Fits the horses and looks great! Of course, I'm now eyeing the matching bridle ;)

I LOVE THIS MARTINGALE! It's amazing quality, darkens nicely and is extremely durable! My horse pull's alot and this martingale shows it can stand her and her attitude!

Great martingale with a great price. Dark leather and white stitching, matches the plymouth bridle I also purchased nicely.

This is a decent martingale, it seems it be a little small. The leather is stiff and the knot is very prone to slipping. Overall it is an acceptable martingale, but the bridle of this variation/style is of better design.

I'm a newbie to the whole horse leather world, so I don't really know what leather is quality and what isn't.
It arrived quite well. The non-raised parts weren't very stiff. The raised parts were, but after some oiling they are now getting quite soft.
However, while I was putting some rubbing alcohol on it, purple-colored dye came off onto the cloth. This didn't concern me at first, until I looked at a few spots on the martingale where I faint purple like spots! Some olive oil quickly fixed those, but there was a whole spot where it was almost pink colored. It has darkened with a few coats of olive oil, however that certain spot is a little bit lighter than the rest of the martinagle.
It is a very pretty, attractive bridle and the color is gorgeous, aside from the light spot. You get what you pay for, and in fact this is a very good quality martingale. I have not used it yet so I don't know how durable it it.
