I don't over tighten my cinch. So I like a breast collar to help keep the saddle in place. Some of the people I let ride my horses don't always stay centered. I'd really hate for their saddle to slip under the belly of a hrose.

And we do ride a few hills around here. I happen to like the Beta or Biothane breast collars. They are easier to clean up.

I probably should use a crupper also. But I just never have.

I've ridden without one in this saddle in all kind of terrain, steep hills too (up at least, is a bit to cowardice to take the steep hills down) and the saddle doesn't move an inch.. But I use a breatplate anyway because they're pretty :P

That too, of course!

I rarely ride with a tight girth, so they help keep it from sliding back (especially with my TB mare, that girl has shark-fin withers. )

And painted horse, thouse are beautiful pictures! Where do you get your biothine tack?

I've collected stuff when I find it on sale over the years. I think the red biothane came from Country Supply. The Green Biothane/Black Beta came fro Gaits if Gold.

But any of the sites that focus on endurance horses have both. Sportack, Longriders, Cooltack

I always ride with the breastcollar because it will keep the saddle from sliding underneath and from sliding back. Its just safer, in my opinion. I just use a matching leather one that came with my saddle and works great.

Cruppes don't drive horses nuts? I mean I picture it making ME nutty if I had to wear one.
