breastplate

  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi, so here it is, I'm considering purchasing a breastplate due to the amount of hacking out I've been doing with my gelding, as our area is full of hills and the routes we take can be steep at points.

    Hi, I need to get a new running martingale for my horse, but I was wondering if it makes more sense to get a breastplate. My saddle doesn't slip, but is a breastplate safer (just in case) than a regular running martingale? Opinions?

    Hey, I have just purchased a 5 point breastplate (with clips), but my saddle (Wintec 250 all-purpose) doesn't have D clips to attach it to. I was wondering where to attach the breastplate to. I can remove the clips, if need be. Thanks

My question is where does a standard hunter breastplate attach...

    I'll be starting to drive my Thoroughbred/ Clyde mare and was wondering if when pulling a sleigh if I should be using a collar? At the moment I own a breastplate harness which fits her correctly. Any advice would be lovely. Thanks
