    Default HDR 5 point breastplate

    Im sorry but another tack question. What are folks opinions on the Henry de RIvel breastplates, 5 point. Jeffers has them for way cheaper than anyone else. Is there a better brand in that price range? Does anyone have any expeirence with this breastplate?

    If you do a search there are a couple threads on this. I just ordered one, but horse size is backordered pretty much everywhere. When it comes in though, I will report back!

    I have it and love it. It's one of the nicer HdR products. Sizing is a little strange--the strap that goes to the girth is very long, so I put my girth through the loop rather than using the clip that it came with. I do wish it had leather padding on the shoulders because fleece is a PITA to keep clean. I've had it for over a year, use it 4-5 times a week, and it cleans up beautifully.

    I have one too and like it, but my strap to the girth is short and the straps to the billets are long. I ordered a horse size and ended up cutting the straps to make them fit better. Overall a great product for the price, even with weird sizing!

    I really like it. I actually ended up with a cob size for my TB and he is a pretty normal sized guy- definitely not petitie.
