KV Vet
Raised Breastplate Martingale
English Bridle Acc

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: KV Vet
Model: Raised Breastplate Martingale
Category: English Bridle Acc

Purchase: I paid about $30 for this when I bought it from KV Vet several years ago. I purchased it because I liked the look of a breast collar.

Likes: It comes in standing or running attachment, and the attachment is both adjustable and removable. I can use it for training, but take it off for shows. Despite daily use for several years, the leather has held up. The dye has not faded nor has it ever rubbed off when I have cleaned it. It is inexpensive and fits well on thoroughbreds. It also comes in "cob" sized.

Dislikes: The leather is a bit stiff, although that is to be expected of cheaper leather.

Quality: Almost a mid-grade leather; neither side is rough and it has held up well despite years of daily use and some neglect regarding its regular cleaning schedule. Nothing has broken and the dye hasn't come off, which is usually expected of cheaper tack. The standing attachment has held up, and it fits all tack I have tried with it. It is quite adjustable, so I can use it on everything from 15.2 hands to 17.1 hands (I haven't tried larger). I cannot use it on horses smaller than a stocky 15.1 hands, but I guess that's why it also comes in "cob." Available in a conservative havanna brown color.

Summary: A great schooling piece at a good price. The standing and running attachments cost the same, and it is fully raised so it looks good. This is a durable piece of equipment that I would recommend for anyone who just needs something that is usable, but not pricey or lavish. Only available in dark brown, so will not match all tack.
