Do you regularly ride with one?

No only when roping. I have contemplated getting one to match my show reining saddle but have not yet. Have to be careful as with some horses they get in the way.

I always have one on when I am riding, except for bareback of course.

Nope. I don't have one. I've been thinking about getting one, though.

Horses are God's apology for men.

I recently began using a breast collar. Recently being the last few years. I'm riding more hilly areas than I used to and breast collars help keep a saddle from sliding back. You do have to be sure they fit correctly.

On my QH gelding that I mostly just trail ride, yes. He has high withers, his saddle fits really well and I've never had a problem, it's just a precaution.

On my mare, never.

Nope don't use one at the moment. I love the look of them though and am looking for one that i LOVE and matches me saddle. Normally only use one when roping...

I ride with one because I don't have to overtighten my cinch to keep my saddle in place.
