If you're going to event with it you might want one with elastic. A lesson horse at the barn I used to board at had this one - it's nice for the price: Crump Chetak Elastic Breastplate: Legacy Tack

Unless you want black to for dressage... then i'd have to look more ;)

Dover is having a closeout sale on this AMAZING black breastplate, I use it in dressage. ;)

She doesn't throw her head excessively currently just once in a while but she is just starting to be retrained I wouldn't use it unless I have to but I definitely want the breastplate which is why I was leaning toward the attachment I just didn't know if they were similiar to the regular one or if it has less adjustments

In eventing dressage. You can do it anywhere, it's definitely legal in competition.

And to the OP I would just get a breastplate for now, then if need be, you can get an atachment.

Yep, it's mainly seen at horse trials, not so much at actual dressage shows. At horse trials it seems to be part of the "look" where at dressage shows they're normally only used if the horse truly needs it.
