Description of the leather breastplate for mono flap saddle
The breastplate provides saddle balance and stability. It evenly distributes pressure while leaving room for the horse's shoulders. Both the bridge and the shoulder sections are easily adjustable for all types of horses. Both parts are lined and padded for maximum comfort. The chest piece has two D-rings to attach a martingale attachment.
Snap hooks on an adjustable elastic strap make it easy to attach to D-rings on the mono-flap saddle. The breastplate has an additional stainless steel snap hook to attach to the girth.
Advantage of the breastplate
