    Default Favorite padded biothane breastplate?

    My thin skinned sensitive TBx needs a new breastplate for trail riding. We ride on rough terrain, so I need something strong and comfortable. She has been wearing one that is fleece lined, but it is wearing thin and I would like to switch to padded biothane for ease of cleaning and less bulk. I need one with lots of adjustments, as I also ride different horses.
    Which brand is your favorite?

    Love the Zilco one that we use. Lots of adjustments and easy to clean.

    Another vote for Zilco. Comes in great colors, super comfy for my OTTB girl, and just throw in the washing machine to come out like new. I have a purple one for my chestnut girl and she looks fabulous!
