BROC. HAN­SON HORSES Ram­page, 9-year-old; Doc­tor, 11-year-old BREAST COL­LAR

Dy­na­mite Horse­man Sup­ply

WHY? I like the qual­ity. They un­der­stands what it takes and the de­mand we put on our gear. They use good-qual­ity leather, and if some­thing’s not right, they make it right. For me, that’s as im­por­tant as the qual­ity of the tack. I like the slim trip­ping col­lars that have just a lit­tle curve that goes up high on the shoul­ders. They’re my fa­vorite for a head horse.

BU''Y HAW.INS II HORSES Daisy, 14-year-old; X, 13-year-old BREAST COL­LAR

OXBOW Tack

WHY? They have a bead­work set that I ride on some, and a plain oil leather that I ride on some. I use just the ba­sic roper breast col­lar. As a heeler, our breast col­lars aren’t nec­es­sar­ily go­ing to be a high weight-bear­ing unit, but it keeps your sad­dle set where you put it— that’s the kicker there. I use OXBOW Tack be­cause I like the look and they’re durable and long last­ing.

HOPE THO0PSON HORSE An­dre, 6-year-old BREAST COL­LAR

T Pop Leather Shop

WHY? He de­signs ev­ery­thing how I want it. It’s all hand­made. He takes my imag­i­na­tion and brings it to life. His imag­i­na­tion is end­less. I can tell him a small idea that I want and it turns out bet­ter than I ever ex­pected. I also like T-Pop be­cause a lot of the horses that I ride are smaller and he makes them where the strap part fits right and it cen­ters up good—it just fits them.

WES­LEY THORP HORSES 13-year-old; Lex, Dennis, BREAST 14-year-old COL­LAR

Tres Rios Sil­ver

WHY? I just think that it looks good and it fits my horses well. It’s a nicely made breast col­lar—it holds up good and looks nice. Tres Rios is easy to deal with at ac­com­mo­dat­ing any needs, and their cus­tomer ser­vice is great.

RYAN 0OTES HORSE Rock­star, 15-year-old BREAST COL­LAR

Bar H Equine

WHY? I use a three­piece breast col­lar from Bar H that is a part of my line with them. I like the three piece be­cause I feel like it moves with the horse’s shoul­ders. It also kind of se­cures the sad­dle to keep it cen­tered on your horse, whereas a trip­ping col­lar flops a lit­tle more when you’re run­ning down the arena be­cause it doesn’t have all the straps.
