Why You Need a Western Breast Collar

The breast collar for horses has quickly become more than a nice-to-have accessory, particularly if you're working your horse hard or putting them through their paces. A good-fitting breast collar helps secure your saddle (and you) while allowing ample saddle movement for your horse to make powerful maneuvers correctly. For example, if you're roping, barrel racing or working cow horse, you'll understand what a great asset a breast strap can be. Another advantage of a roping breast collar is that you don't have to cinch up as tightly, which is especially beneficial for young colts, which often have low withers

Choosing the Right Horse Chest Strap

Your inclination may be to err on the side of buying a too-big horse breast collar. However, if you find yourself taking multiple wraps of the tug straps on your saddle's D rings, it's a clear indication that your Western breast collar is too large. On the flip side, you don't want a breast collar that's too tight, which restricts your horse's movements and is uncomfortable for them. Make sure you buy a quality roping breast collar that's shorter between the "D" rings. That way, you can adjust the tug straps to ensure a proper fit.

The following are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we get about our Western breast collar collection. Please let us know if you have a question not posted here or check out our learning center for more information.

How Do You Saddle a Horse With a Breast Collar?

To correctly saddle a horse with a breast collar, you'll want to attach your horse breast collar to the "D" rings or saddle rigging on the front of your saddle. You'll need to run a strap between your horse's front legs that connects to the cinch. It's also recommended that you use a wither strap.

How Does a Wither Strap Work With a Horse Chest Strap?

An over-the-neck wither strap is made to go over your horse's withers to hold their chest strap in the proper position over the shoulder. The wither strap prevents the breast strap from rubbing and causing your horse discomfort.

Where Should a Western Breast Collar Sit on a Horse?

If your horse breast collar is positioned properly, it will sit above the point of your horse's shoulders near the neck and shoulder tie-in.
