Wait hold up, the elasticy ones are breastGIRTHS, that go on the girth, and the pure leather ones are for the D-rings?

....Shoot.

Nope, Tymer. Let's see if I can explain this.
There are breastplates - they can be either all leather, have elastic inserts or have all elastic shoulders. Most have a wither strap, but some do not.
All leather:


Elastic inserts:


Elastic shoulders w/ no wither strap:


Then, there are the 5-point breastplates. Because there are 5 points of contact with the saddle/girth.



A breastgirth goes straight across the chest. Some have a strap to keep them in place, when this is used the breastgirth is connected to the billets/girth on each side, like this:


That one is elastic, but they can also be leather:


There are also versions with built in martingales:


Other times they are connected only to the saddle d's, only elastic ones are used this way:


Whew, I think I covered everything :)

Oh my goodness thank you My Beau! I was freaking out a bit, thinking that I was putting an all elastic breastGIRTH on the D rings...But apparently that's not the only way to do all elastic!
I was aware of these things, but I noticed nobody else had an all elastic one.

Wow, I have never seen the "5-point" style before. Kinda different!
