    When we are just playing around with the barrels I ALWAYS use nylon. My breast collar is nylon with felt backing. Leather seems to rub the hair off Pocos chest. I think nylon is more flexible and easier for a barrel horse to maneuver.

    Personally, I am not a fan of neoprene because it does tend to rub off the hair and can cause sores, if I were to buy nylon, I would look for felt backing because it is less likely to rub. I agree with mostly everyone that there is good tack (leather or nylon) and there is cheap tack. If you are going to run barrels or any riding activity for that matter, you need to make sure that your tack is quality made as well as functional.

    I like leather. Its just an opinion. I would rather my tack break than my horse's mouth... You never know what something might get caught on and you would rather the tack break away than hurt the horse. As long as its kept clean and conditioned, leather will last forever. Nylon is ok though if leather isn't in the budget.

    This was made back in January, I'm sure that she has found barrel racing tack since then.
    She has also been banned from this forum anyways. :/
