If your saddle doesn't have the appropriate breast collar dees already attached as part of the rigging/ tree it will never fit properly. Many people do use the cinch dee ring, but attaching it there will cause it to slip and become too tight. I'm not a fan of using a wither strap to correct this because it can cause too much downward pressure.

I have never used a pulling collar because all of our saddles have the small, high, angled dee rings meant for breast collar use. I think everyone is correct to steer you towards a pulling type collar based on your needs.

The pulling type collar just makes more sense. When I had a new saddle custom made, I had them put the "D" rings up by the conchos so that I can use a regular BC but have it work above the shoulder like a pulling collar.

Green Broke
I bought my first breast collar because I liked the looks and to keep my saddle still while ridding in the hills. I found I could NOT find a breast collar to fit Baby so I rigged a wither strap out of an old throat latch from an old bridle. It works well for me and me and baby pulled logs out of the pasture a couple of months ago so it worked pretty well for me!
