Default Martingale

Iíve always known that piece as a Martingale. Yes, for the chest on horse furniture. Regards, D.J.

Hi, I will go with Mac, its a bit boss, it has 2 large "pegs" N - S, these are usually threaded and as often as not have been cut off short, a Martingale will have about 4 or 5 flat metal pieces like the blades of an officers OSD bronze cap badge, this allows it to be attached to the piece of leather on the horses harness. I have examples of both type of mounting. They come with both a Gulphic and a Kings crown.

Regards

Phil.

Well sorry DJ You have been misinformed Phil's explanation is spot on. You wouldn't want nuts and bolts digging into your horses chest. I can post a pic of both if you wish.
Best Mac
