When choosing the right saddle for your style or discipline, it is worthwhile to invest in a breastplate for your horse. A Breastplate, also known as breastcollar, breastgirth, or breastrap, is a piece of tack that prevents the saddle from sliding back while riding. They also add a bit of flair to your horse’s overall look! They are particularly useful for horses with broader shoulders and flatter ribcages, providing stability for the rider and the horse. Breaststraps also function as a safety measure. Should a rider’s billets give way or break for any reason, the rider has a chance to dismount before the saddle slides off completely.
