I agree but unless you are going right out and climbing steep grades you can wait a bit before getting one.
In fact, in cutting, the trend is moving away from breast collars. The idea is to allow more freedom for the horse's shoulders without the restriction of the collar. There is a great deal of lateral movement and fast starts and stops in cutting. If your saddle fits properly it does not have to be over cinched or does it need a collar for normal riding.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
