Oh crazy! Like the actual elastic broke or which part?
I've never seen an elastic one break in my own experience, I have been eventing for quite awhile and they are heavily favored by eventers. I *have* personally seen a few situations where the all leather ones have broken while in use, since they have no give. I think it goes without saying that whichever one you choose, it should be checked regularly for wear and kept clean and in good repair at all times.
