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'!).

The SmartPak German Martingale set comes with both the specialized reins and martingale. The martingale forks go through the bit and snap to any of the four D rings on the reins. Change the rein settings to increase or decrease pressure. Neck and girth pieces are fully adjustable. The martingale and forks are made of soft pliable Brown leather. The reins are Brown cotton web with leather stops. Buckle end rein closure. Stainless steel hardware. One Size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really helps! This really helps my mare who can get a little anxious and stick her head up in the air. Better than a running martingale and draw reins. Nice leather too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please Read Before You Buy I was looking for a German Martingale, I saw the reviews saying some pieces did'nt for correctly. I still bought it & ALL THE PIECES FIT. I am in love with this product. The leather is soft. I am buying another one!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit anywhere. I chose this martingale over others because Smartpak has great customer service. I read the reviews and figured that it had a 50/50 chance on fitting one of my four horses. It didn't. It's too small in the girth attachment, too small in the neck strap, and too large in the rein attachment. The only reason I'm keeping it is because I have a friend who can do leather repair to shorten the reins and lengthen the girth strap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hopefully just what I need I've just started training with a German martingale, but after borrowing a friend's once, I just decided to jump in & buy my own. The leather is very nice & it is well-made & looks very durable. The reins are a good length and easy to hold. I like this product.My only complaint is that the actual working part of the martingale (the long ends that go thru the bit to clip onto the reins) are on the shortest setting and I have nowhere shorter to adjust them if I need more effectiveness. I could tie knots in them, or take them to a leather worker, but I wish they were a couple inches shorter instead. (for the record, my horse is 16.2hh)
