4 Types of Breast Plates for Your Horse

*The Post Contains Affiliate Links, Read About Amazon Affiliate Links here*


1.  Racing Breast Plate

The breastplate has a hoop to go over the horse's neck and attaches to the girth straps on the saddle.  This one is different in the rest as it doesn't attach to the girth in between the legs.  

Used for everyday riding or racing.  


2.  Elastic Y Breast Plate

This is similar to the next one.  It has elastic sides that attach to the D rings on the saddle, an attachment to the girth and a martingale attached.

Used for every day riding to keep the saddle in place.


3.  3 Point Breast Plate

This one has the same attachments as the last except it has to go over the horse's neck and a piece sits at the base in the neck to keep it in place.

Used for every day riding to keep the saddle in place.



4.  5 Point Breast Plate

This one is the same as the 3 point but with the added attachments going to the girth straps.  I have faux or real lambskin on pressure points and is used for show jumping and eventing to keep the saddle in place.
