Breast collar = breast plate ?

Okay so i'm from Scotland and over hear we would say a breastplate which attaches to the saddle and can also have a martingale attached

Hugo is modeling below ....

Now I keep seeing posts refering to a breast collar, i'm assuming it's just the American name for it or is it something different ?

It's the American name. Looks like the same thing.

I think a breast collar is the western version of a breast plate but don't quote me on that one I'm not really sure lol

To me, Breastcollar = Breastplate

Some may call this a breastcollar:

While this is a breastplate:

I just kinda assumed it was like Savvy said. I always associate a breastplate with English riding and a breast collar with western riding. Hm, it may be another one of those things that changes depending on where you live and what group you grew up with.

I'm with smrobs and Savvy, I always thought it differed depending on if you were talking about english or western.

I've used both interchangeably...sometimes it's easier for a person to 'get' what the strap is, if you say breastplate; I get more "what is that?" using breast collar...they assume it's a literal collar, hahaha!

I grew up Western in NM and TX and it was always called a breastplate.
