Recently a stewart took exception at the length of my martingale. Is there an objective guideline of how short is too short, or is it at the stewart's discretion?

You should be able to pull the rings up to the same height as the withers
I don't know official rules but when the horse is stamding relaxed it should reach to were the throatlash groove is. I know this is how to fit it ( or atleast were I'm from ) but I haven't seen rules on it...
