Breast-collar types and proper fit.
Whether you enjoy the trails or stay in the show pen, a well-made leather breast collar, like the Working Tack Contoured Breast Collar pictured here ($89.09; ride thebrand.com), will let you enjoy your ride without the worry of your saddle slipping backward. Pay attention to fit when you use a breast collar. If adjusted too low or too tight, it’ll limit your horse’s ability to move and stay comfortable.
