Okay, so I have a problem with my saddle that keeps sliding back. I have tried every possible technique to stop it from sliding except a breastplate or a magical saddle/pad...
So I was wondering what you thought was the best breastplate for my dollar and a fairly narrow built TB?
I was looking for one of these breastplates So if you have any comments, pricing and locations of any of these it would be greatly appreciated as well as any other breastplate that would work, along with their prices and general location please!
Have you tried a Barnsby grip pad? They have a grippy material on the underside that keeps the pad in place, and built in gel pads that also keep the saddle in place. I have 2 and love them. Smartpak carries them.
I just seem to have work through the same issue with my horse. I had to switch to jumping breastplate, like the link you posted, from a hunting-style, which did not help at all with sliding, and making sure my girth was tight enough. I found nunn-finer one with wither strap on consignment at my local tack shop!
VTO Saddlery is having a sale on their Nunn Finer breastplates- jumpers, hunters, 5-ways, you name it. You might want to check it out
Still way more expensive than ordering it direct from Bartville Harness Shop, which makes practically all of the Nunn Finer breast plates except for the 5-way.
To Maya01: If I were dealing with a backward slippage problem, I'd want whichever breastplate was least likely to "give", and that would mean no elastic. Have you considered just a basic leather strap version, like the one you linked to but no elastic? If it fits the horse correctly, it shouldn't interfere unnecessarily with movement or create rubs.
