Attaching martingale to girth

I've got a neophyte question: I've got a girth that has a D-ring and a standing martingale that does not have a clip. Can you get clips for standing martingales to attach to the girth's D-ring, or do you have to buy special martingales for this? I can't figure out how to undo the buckle on the martingale to get a clip on it. Normally, we've been just slipping the girth through the loop in the martingale, but we've got a girth that's too wide to do that.

You could always tie something around the loop on the martingale and leave it on and clip it to the girth when you put it back, or on the breastcollar if you use one. That's what some of our horses use, most of them do have a double clip to attach to the d-ring on the girth though. I don't think they're really expensive either, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue (depending, no offense) to go out and buy one with a double clip so you can just clip it on if you would rather that than tying it and leaving it attached..
This is just what we do at my barn, so it might not be the best thing, but works **** near fine, never had one break or untie itself. :3

Thanks. I may end up doing that. It just seems like there should be a way to put a clip on the martingale that would be acceptable for a show where you have to take the martingale on or off depending upon what type of class it is.

You could probably buy just a double clip and attach it to the loop onthe martingale, and onto the girth, along with being able to unclip the clip attached to the girth, and his/ her bridle or headstall. :3

I'll check into that.

If the leather is thin enough, just loop it through the bottom of one of these:

Then you can use the clip to attach to the d-ring

That's kind of what I was thinking of doing, but you can't undo the buckle on the Martingale to loop it through it.
