I've needed a new breastplate forever, and since I haven't bought a single piece of tack in 6 months I am thinking about splurging and getting a fancy custom 5-point. I know that there is somewhere out there that does them in custom colors (the elastic) but I can't seem to find it by searching. Anyone have any info?
Just call Bartville Harness Shop and ask if they'll customize it. They make the Nunn Finer 5-Point Breastplate, they'll sel it to you for $120 + $17 shipping, and they do custom work. Even if they charge you a fortune to add blue elastic, you'll still be way under the price tag on these other breastplates.
For the record, I think matching on the breastplate is excessive. Once your horse sweats all over the elastic, it's going to look ucky. OTOH, the spectators would hardly be able to see it as you zipped by, so if it floats your boat go for it.

In a previous thread, someone posted a link to an Ebay seller in the UK that did these. They looked just as fantastic as the big names. I bought a Nunn Finer and love it - but it is all brown, including the elastic.
