Well it can interfere, if you are not careful. It is important, IMO, to have it made of a firm but stretchy material. I have used leather and web ones, but you need to keep an eye on how your horse tolerates it.

Yours appears to be fine and not too tight to be a worry (as far as the avvie photo shows).

I like Horseware - they have some on sale at Dover

Horseware Amigo Breastplate | Dover Saddlery

But if you are going to spend the price - get a 5 point. They are on sale at Classic Saddlery - Quality English Horse Tack & Horse Supplies for the Equestrian.

I am on my way to the tack store right now, to go pick one up.

Mudpie just got a 5-point breastplate that I'm super excited about!! Except I haven't been able to try it yet because he got injured right before Christmas (stress fracture on his splint bone and encapsulated abscess in upper groin area)... AUGH!

:) I'll tell you how it works when we finally get to try it out in a couple months!!
