Not neccessarily. A Chain is just the classic way to lead a horse in Western Showmanship, seeing that the horse also has a show halter on, this makes sense.
I honestly don't like numbers one or two. They are both too awkwardly built for my like. To me, a western pleasure horse should look more like the third one. Once you pile all of the heavy looking western tack and a rider on to a leaner built animal the horse all but dissapears.
