As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Coordinates perfectly with the Harwich Padded Fancy Stitch Bridle. Rich Brown leather is accented with delicate off white fancy stitching. Stainless steel hardware.

Brown. Cob, Full or Oversize.

    Harwich Raised Fancy Stitch Standing Martingale by SmartPak is rated 4.7674 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs small I had to return the full size for a Warmblood size for my four year old Warmblood. It was small around the neck. I have not received the larger size, so I cant comment at this time on its overall fit. Hoping it fits as it is a beautiful product that will match my Hartwich Bridle I ordered and love through SmartPak.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Standing Martingale I just received this yesterday and I bought it a week ago (love SmartPak's shipping) and it was so soft right out of the box! I showed it to my dad who's very old school and will only buy quality things and he said I did a good job oiling it up even though I hadn't done that yet. All I did was clean it with regular leather soap and a little conditoner and it was ready to go! I bought the full size for my 16hh appendix mare though I haven't tried it on yet. The raised and fancy stitching makes it looks very neat and show ring worthy. This is probably one of the nicest martingales in this price range!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality martingale but runs on the small side. Ordered the horse size and it had to be adjusted to one of the longest it could be, but it works. Fits my 16.1 1/2hh warmblood well when adjusted. Really impressed with the leather quality. Darkened right up to match the rest of my tack.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality for the price Bought this for my 16H TB after someone stretched out my edgewood! I brought a cob and it was a little snug to start (which is to be expected) but with conditioner and use it fits nicely now. Was easy to match to the rest of my tack. Pretty enough for the show ring but great for schooling. I've had it for a few months and use it at least 5 days a week and so far its holding up great and cleans up easily.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from SMALL! I like this martingale to look at. It's pretty. But it's REALLY small. I got the full-size for my 15.3hh TB (she goes in a cob size bridle and her neck's not especially long) and it was still way too small for her. I'm trying to decide whether I want to try again with the oversize. But the martingale is really beautiful so if I can get the sizing right, I'll be thrilled.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely martingale Love this martingale, it fits my TB great and matches his Harwich bridle perfectly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Martingale I finally got this martingale after having the Harwich bridle for about 6 months. Smartpak was awesome with putting the nameplate on with my order and it looks great. It does run very small (bridle is big, martingale is small!), so I would order up. My 17.1 hh Belgian Warmblood needed an oversize while he fit the normal full Harwich bridle... but no big deal. It's fairly new to me so I haven't softened it up completely, but the bottom keeper on the neck was very stiff and me and my trainer struggled to get it in place for a while... But other than that it's great and is a perfect match! The color matches my brown Bates saddle perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, Great Martingale! Had to exchange the full size for oversize for my 4 yo WB who I don't think is huge. Even the oversize is nearly as big as possible on her, yet the ending of the raised part is way far back from where the joint now is. So sizing may be a little funky. Nonetheless, it works great and looks very nice. I intend to use this for schooling and showing for now, so can't speak to durability yet, but I certainly hope it holds up well to daily use!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality The martingale is great and looks great with my Harwich bridle. Like the bridles though, order large. I have a 17.2 QH and need the WB size in both bridle and definitely in the martingale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly fabulous! I actually got this martingale as a schooling martingale because I ordered the Harwich Bridle and was impressed with the quality and look of it. I ended up returning the Bridle because I didn't care for the fit, but this martingale will now be my new show martingale! After one oiling, it is just stunning and supple and i love the way it fits my TB mare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Nice quality runs small compared to the matching bridle. I have a 16'1" baby warmblood and it is on the last notch. Purchased both bridle and this in " horse" size. Bridle runs big this runs small. Both are great quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Martingale out there! I got this martingale for my new TB expecting to use it for a schooling bridle only, but once I got it I use it for shows also! It is so fancy for the show ring! People come up to me asking where I get this martingale all the time, thinking that it is really expensive. The leather is a gorgeous color, and made of great quality stuff! I had this for almost a year and it still looks brand new! This is my all time favorite product from smartpak and will definitely buy it again!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the Price Love this just as much as my Harwich bridle. Soft supple leather and fits pretty well.The only downside is that the buckle is really low... just not the norm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice martingale I bought this martingale with the matching bridle. The leather is good quality but a bit stiff. Looks very nice with the fancy stitched bridle. It would have been nice if it came with a doughnut.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Martingale Awesome value - oiled lightly to match the Harwich padded fancy stitch bridle. Looked great at a show on a darker bay horse. Super value for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Schooling Martingale This is a very nice martingale for every day use or local showing. It looks nice, and matches my tack well. It has held up well on my school pony with daily use (we do clean it & oil it)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super nice Very nice martingale - will look great with the Harwich comfort bridle I love.
    Date published: 2012-06-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Match This martingale is a perfect match to the Harwich Raised Fancy Bridle. I bought them at the same time so that all of my tack would match, even though I don't use the martingale as often as the bridle. It is good quality leather and looks nice enough for the show ring. It also fits the 16 hand, rather stocky TB I ride perfectly. If you horse is taller you may want to move up to the larger size, as there are only a few holes left. I've only used it a few times, but seems to be good quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Martingale, have not used on my horse yet I have not had a chance to reall use the martingale yet, my horse is greens, so we're just getting him used to having me on him, but it's a lovely martingale, and the leather is really nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Martingale for the price, I ordered the Full size and had to return it for the O/S. Not sure of the durability as I have only been using it for a couple weeks now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice for the price Very impressed for the price. A little oiling helps but definitely worth buying for schooling or low level showing. The raised leather and stitching is very nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super martingale for the price I needed a new martingale, since the one I had been using broke. I had bought it used at a tack sale many years ago. I had no idea how expensive martingales could be. So based on other reviews I thought that the price of the Smart Pak martingale was worth a try. Well I LOVE it. Very nice soft leather (even though I oiled it anyway) the fit was great. I bought the full size for my 15.2 TB. I saw the matching bridle at the barn, and I soooo badly want to buy that too!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Matringale I bought this to go with a Harwich bridle that i bought for my 15.5 hh arab. I love this martingale!! The first time i ordered it, i ordered it in a cob because thats what i was told to get. But of course it was way way to small for my arab. So i ordered it again, and i got the proper size, which is just a little bit big on him, but hes still filling out. The one i got in the mail was a different color then what it was supposed to be, (i think somebody used it, and sent it back) but i was is deep need of one, so i am using it now, and ordered a 3rd one that hopefully matched my bridle. But over all, this is an amazing martingale for the price, and looks very stunning on my bay gelding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT MARTINGALE!! I LOVE this martingale, especially for the price. you cna not beat it. I purchased this in Havana color and it matched my bridle ( by another maker) perfectly. I did buy the oversized martingale and it fits my WB/TB X perfectly. Would easily transition into the show ring or cheap enough for daily use!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Price Point love it! Purchased the matching bridle and both are very nce! Oiled after every ride for a week, super soft and a lovely color!
