Horse Martingales

Martingales, both Standing Martingales and Running Martingales, are used by Hunter and Jumper riders to increase poll pressure on horses that rise too high "above the bit".

Standing Martingales attach directly to the noseband of the bridle, and engage pressure when the horse raises its head too high.

Running Martingales attach to the reins through metal loops on end end.  Because the running martingale is attached via the reins, it adds leverage pressure to the bit when the horses head raises high enough to engage the martingale. 

Generally speaking, a Running Martingale is less restrictive than a Standing Martingale because the rider can disengage the martingale at any time by loosening the reins.
