Smile Breast collars....good quality without going broke

I need a breast collar for my daughter and I to share....hubby won't let me spend ton but want fair quality....daughter wants a little bling....i can also add that.....brands you suggest to look for? Seems it is either cheap stuff and bling or manly and sturdy big name brands? Online is well as used....need name brands to look for. (like showman....heard that was cheap quality....) Discipline is barrel racing and some trail riding.....want to spend under $140......

Weaver is a good brand, so is reinsman. Circle Y is a good brand but more expensive. My breast collars are Saddlesmith and they are super good quality. Martin, Schultz Brothers, Courts, and Cactus are all good brands. What I've seen from Bar H Equine has been decent quality. Billy Cook is a good brand if you get the items made in Sulphur OK (the ones made in Texas lack on quality).

Probably your best bet for good quality with some bling for not a lot of money will be something used from Ebay or your local tack shop.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Yup-I was going to suggest eBay. I got one there last year that was really good quality for $25.

Weaver has quality with bling and not to terribly priced. I was always very happy with them. Saddlesmith is good, Big Horn isnt bad and etc.

I have two breast collars that I'm really happy with. One is by Tex Tan that I bought at a local tack shop. Its super soft and supple and looks brand new after 2 1/2 years. The other is an Amish made one that I bought off ebay. If you want a piece of tack that'll last you forever, Amish tack may be something to look into. It is thick, with really stout buckles and you can get plain or slight bling. Just put Amish tack into your ebay search window. It's not THE cheapest at $75 to $150, but it's nice stuff.

Billy Cook should have breast collars under $140, and they are quality leather.

I have a Royal King breast collar with studs and hair-on inserts for about $65. I've oiled it maybe twice in the two years I've had it and it has held up very well for the price. The leather is probably not Weaver or Circle Y quality but I could definitely see it lasting me another few years.

Royal King breat staps or Bridles arent that bad for the money. I have done repairs on a Royal King breast strap and it wasnt bad.
