Western Horse Training Martingales & Forks

If you need a training fork or martingale for a horse in a Western show, you can find the right one at Schneiders. Martingales are a practical piece of horse tack that is sometimes allowed in schooling and/or judged competition. This equipment helps train equines to have proper head carriage both so they look more presentable and so they don’t hit the rider by raising their heads too high. Whether you need a Western running martingale, standing martingale or adjustable training fork, Sstack.com has a great deal on a high-quality product. Our training martingales come from brands such as Billy Royal®, Dura-Tech®, Victor Supreme and Premier that are used by professional trainers.

Both martingales and forks work by allowing full lateral flexion, but limiting vertical flexion, creating pressure that makes it difficult for a horse to lift or throw their head above the desired height. A martingale collar for a horse has a leather strap that goes around their next, while a training fork is a basic triangle with loops for the reins. Our Western training martingales and forks are both made of fine but supple leather that matches the traditional aesthetic and has solid brass hardware that is remarkably durable. Unlike a tie-down, the horse will have complete side-to-side movement while being trained in the correct posture and balance.

Choose from several styles and color options when selecting the right Western fork or martingale for your horse. The girth strap is adjustable on all models while select martingales also have adjustable forks and neck straps to attain precise leverage. Use running martingales that allow the rider to release pressure immediately or go with a German martingale if you need additional training-only leverage. Even if you have a non-competition horse, a Western pleasure martingale can make casual riding a more rewarding experience. Schneiders has free shipping on qualifying orders plus a 100 percent satisfaction on these heavy-duty martingales that are effective and have a traditional Old West look.
