I tried taking a picture of the crack but couldn't get one to turn out. It's in a really weird spot under a buckle so I couldn't get a picture. It's only a small crack on the surface of the leather. Also, I used this breastplate for an english saddle and on the Weaver website it says it was made for an English saddle so I'm not sure if it would work with western.
Here is a pic of the rigging on the saddle I am wanting to use it on do you think it would fit? It has high rings like on my english saddle, and I want a breast collar that has the strap over the neck, I've seen it in western before
