I am excited! My saddle guy whipped up attachments to make MT breast collar a pulling breast collar! Can't wait to try it out! Ps the pics came in handy for my saddle guy to make 'em and for me to know how to wrap them! Thanks again Smrobs!!!

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.

PD, I'm happy to hear it .

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

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.

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.

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!
