All About Western Breast Collars

The western breast collar is an essential piece of riding equipment for riders who have experienced saddle slippage. The traditional purpose of western breast collars is to prevent the saddle from slipping back, but today many use the breast collar for decorative purposes. Various styles are available with intricate leather designs and blingy metal detailing to impress the judge when you enter the show ring. Here are some frequently asked questions about western breast collars to help you determine if you should buy one for your horse.

Frequently Asked Questions About Western Breast Collars

What do western breast collars do?

Western breast collars prevent the saddle from slipping back while you ride. The breast collar does this by attaching to the saddle, going around the horse’s neck, and often between their legs to attach to the girth.

Do you need a breast collar with a western saddle?

A western breast collar is not always needed with a western saddle. In fact, many horses will go perfectly fine and without slippage with no breast collar. If you experience saddle slippage, you may want to consider adding one to your tack set.

How should a western breast collar fit?

A western breast collar should fit snug, but it should not restrict your horse’s shoulders or put pressure on his windpipe. A fist should fit between the horse’s chest and the breast collar, and there should be a hand width between the wither strap and the withers. In addition, there should not be a gap in the leather that goes between the horse’s legs. In all other areas, you should be able to comfortably slide your hand under the breastplate to ensure it is not too tight.
