Both pictures seem to have it fitted to the "Ds" on their saddle. As to how tight, unlike a leather breast plate which has little or no give, the elastic type is meant to stretch under pressure from the saddle. If it is loose to begin with, it will have no affect when called for. I believe it should be snug but not stretched when first fitting it. If placed properly, it has no affect on your horse's airway.
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.
