    Technically that is a running martingale but a poor one.
    Attachments can have buckles or snaps for the breastplate ring. I personally like snaps - much faster ;)

    That is what is called WESTERN TRAINING FORKS.
    It attaches the the d ring on the girth not on to a breast plate?
    Its a training to tool for younger horses to learn proper headset.

    It is the western version of a running martingale.

    Oh, we had one of those on Freddy one day during a jumping lesson (he was being a complete ass), and it was attached to his breastplate ring. I personally would never use one myself, but I think it's a better piece of equipment than a martingale that doesn't let the horse stretch out his neck over fences.

    Well, a running martingale DOES let the horse stretch out. I think you are thinking of a standing martingale, which is directly attached to the horse's head and restricts head and neck movement. You find a SM a lot in hunters while the RM is prefered for eventing and showjumping.

    I have two running martingale attachments they came with my breastplates one had a buckle and the other has a snap so it could be an attachment and it is a bit short to be a true RM.

    As it does not have a neckstrap and appears to be short I would agree with those that say it is a running martingale attachment for a breastplate.
