Support rein martingale
A popular auxiliary is the martingale. The martingale consists of a belt, one end of which is attached to the girth, between the front legs of your horse. The other end splits into two narrower straps.
A ring is attached to the end of the narrow straps. The reins should run through these rings. The head strap is held up by a strap around the neck of your shetlander around miniature horse.
If your horse raises its head too high, this auxiliary rein works through the bit on the layers in the mouth of your horse. The longer you let the martingale rein, the higher your horse can lift its head.
The martingale can make the bridle pressure more even while riding, making this auxiliary rein ideal for beginning riders.

A belt runs through the bottom of this belt and is attached to the webbing. As with the martingale, the end splits into two narrower straps.
