JUMPING CROSS COUNTRY BREASTPLATE

169.00

This breastplate has been around for a couple of hundred years, in various forms, first developed by the British cavalry. This particular version was developed by Colin Dangaard, when he started steeple chasing. As he says: "It keeps the saddle where it should be on those big fast jumps where the horse explodes in forward motion. You can easily get caught behind in that action, and this saves your saddle when you do. It is also excellent on rough trail riding, especially at speed. It works particularly well on mules, where you need all the help you can get keeping a saddle in place."

It connects to the saddle with short straps, that go normally to a square bracket on the front of most Aussie saddles, and then back to either a cinch ring, or the actual cinch.  A connector strap has a snap that engages one of two D in the center of the bottom of the girth. Comes in light brown, or dark brown, with brass fittings, or solid black with nickel fittings. Price $169
