The use of a breastplates
With a breastplates or breast collar you ensure that the saddle of your shetlander or miniature horse does not shift while riding. You can attach the harness to the front of your saddle, preventing it from sliding backwards. This is especially useful when you allow your horse to climb a hill or slope during a ride.
The breastplates is also ideal for jumping. It reduces the pressure of the girth on the lower abdomen of your horse. Finally, you can also use this bridle as a basic bridle to which you attach another bridle, such as the martingale.
The breastplates of MHS Equestrian
In our webshop you will find different breastplates. You attach the breast collar to the saddle and the girth with a clip or musketon.
Chest harnesses are available in various materials, such as plastic, elastic or leather. The disadvantage of plastic or elastic is that sanding spots can occur when your shetlander or miniature horse sweats a lot. The leather breast implements in our range prevent this. By using natural leather, your horse can lose its warmth well. Leather is also a lot softer for the skin.
Our breast harnesses are more than adjustable and the front is softly padded for optimum comfort. The fits are of course extremely suitable for small horses such as Shetland.
