Breast Collar With Neck Strap
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Kincade
Model: Breast Collar With Neck Strap
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I bought this at Tack Room Inc for $35 because my thoroughbred gelding really needs a breastcollar but my instructor said to keep his jaw soft he shouldn't have an attached martingale. This was the only one I could find that I wouldn't have to cut the martingale off of.

Likes: It is better than I thought it would be. I was pretty hesitant about it at first, because it has elastic across the chest and it is ugly, so I thought it would slip down his chest and the elastic might rub. Quite happily, neither is true. It stays in place very well on the chest and it does not rub him at all. He actually seems to move better in it than the old breastcollar that had the martingale attached, and about the same as he does without a breastcollar, except his saddle doesn't slide back.

Dislikes: To begin with, it is hideous. The neck strap does tend to ride up his neck, which isn't uncomfortable, but it doesn't look great. The leather quality is FABULOUS for the price, but the ruined it with uneven dye! It has black spots! The dye doesn't run or rub off at all, thankfully, but it would look so much nicer up close if they'd not done such a lousy job dying it.

Quality: Quality-wise, this is really a bargain for the money. The elastic, while still elastic and not fleece, is very soft yet sturdy and gives plenty of give without allowing too much. The leather quality is amazing for the price. The holes are easy to get through even the first time, and it is easy to take apart. If you need an event or endurance breastcollar for cheap, this is the way to go!

Summary: Ugly, but worth every $1 I spent on it. The leather quality exceeded my expectations (I was expecting the same quality as you see for $35 bridles, instead it was more along the lines of a $100 bridle leather quality). The elastic is durable but not overly stiff. The entire thing is super easy to work with. It gets a four out of five because I don't like the neck strap and think that could be done a little better and because it is ugly, ugly, ugly.
