English Breastplates & English Martingales

An English martingale or breastplate is an important piece of tack for training, schooling and even competition in disciplines where head carriage is a large component. Martingales apply pressure when the horse tries to raise its head above a certain height while breastplates prevent the saddle from sliding backward as you ride or jump. In addition to achieving proper head carriage, the martingale can protect a rider from injury should a horse lift his head too high. Schneider’s is the place to find top quality English breastplates, standing martingales and running martingales for sale.

Here, you’ll find martingales and breastplates from Premier, Pinnacle, Joseph Sterling® and other English horse tack leaders. We carry English standing martingales that run from the girth to the noseband and have fixed action to prevent horses from snatching the reins. For more freedom and added safety during a fall, choose a running martingale that attaches directly to the reins. A training breast collar for English riding is an option for saddle retention that allows full equine shoulder movement. If you need both devices, you can get a handcrafted breastplate with running martingale attachment that has added padding to make the horse more comfortable.

We offer training devices in several sizes, styles and colors so you can find the right product for your needs. Pick out a classic havana English breastplate, a dark brown breastplate with raised braiding, a fancy stitching standing martingale or another one of our premium options. These breastplates and martingales are made of quality leather with brass or stainless steel hardware that is durable and stylish. Whether you need tack for entry-level training or a professional horse show, you can find the best English martingales and breastplates at Schneiders. We have free shipping on qualifying orders with industry-leading customer service to make sure you get the right order the first time.
