Different kinds martingales? What kind is this one?

Over the years of boarding horses, people would leave our barn and leave some of their tack and never come back for it. A few years ago a boarder left this martingale, and I have no idea what kind it is. I haven't really come across many martingales in my many years of riding. So, do you have any idea what type of martingale it is?

Would love to help but your photo link didn't work correctly. If you are uploading from your pc, and it looks like you are, you need to do it a different way. Look below the message box you type in. Is there a button that says "go advanced?" If there is not, or after you click it, scroll down and there is a button that says "manage attachments" You want to click on that and you should get a pop up box. Click "choose file" and select the file on your pc, and the click upload, then click "close box" this should upload your photo.

The link you used is for a photo already on the internet on a service such as Photobucket, flickr etc.

When I first came on Horse Forum it was really confusing to me. I hope I have helped.... can't wait to see what kind of martingale it is :)

Looks like a simple running martingale. Reins go through the two rings at the split and the one end with the snap goes between the horse's front legs and snaps to the ring on the girth.

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

Yup, pretty sure it's a simple running martingale.

It is a running martingale atachment for a breastplate. It will attach to the O-ring on the fork on a breastplate.
