English Saddle Trail Riding - Which Breast Collar/Plate?

I trail ride with English tack. The breast collar that I currently use is rubbing the chest of my TWH and is beginning to leave a friction wound. The breast collar is a narrow width - less than one inch. I try to keep the saddle fitting properly and keep its girth as tight as possible. The collar does attach to the girth. The problem is most notible when we climb/ascend. Any suggestions?

Do you actually need the breast plate/collar? Is your saddle sliding back?

I've never actually owned a breast plate for my english saddle, but when I have the money saved, this is the one I'm going to buy; Deluxe Endurance Breastplate by Zilco

Would a Montreal by Tucker work?

Yes, on extended upward grades the saddle will slide back until stopped by the breast collar.

What material is your breastcollar made from? If it's leather, perhaps you should look into a synthetic material.

Personally, I ride with a plain biothane breastcollar (inch width) and have never had issues with rubbing.

Could you please tell me where you purchased the biothane breastcollar?

i got mine from running bear at an endurance ride, but teddy has an online store too. My breastcollar is the classic hunt style breastplate which can be found here:

Just realized my breastcollar is 3/4 inch not the 1 inch I stated above, but it's working for me regardless of the fact I don't know its measurement. ;)
