As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Harwich Elastic Breastplate is made with eye catching SmartPak Blue elastic which also allows for greater freedom of movement for your horse while he is moving or jumping. The elastic allows the shoulder to move more freely yet still stabilizing your saddle. Includes running attachment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good breastplate This is perfect for schooling.  Because of the elastic, I can't show hunters in it, but I wish I could.  Of all the various breastplate designs I have tried, this one seems the most comfortable for my horse.  He is a medium build 16.1 and I did punch an extra hole in the strap that goes to the girth.  The straps that attach to the saddle are on the last hole or so, but this is with D-savers, which add some length.  It fit my horse just like I would expect a horse size to fit him.  I would say it would fit a broad range of sized horses.  Certainly horses much bigger, and horses somewhat smaller too.  Really like the look and the quality.  Very pleased.  Seems like it will hold up well too.  Elastic is substantial and doesn't seem like it will wear out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Nice Looking Breastplate This breastplate is really nice looking. The leather is soft, high quality, and a nice dark brown color. I'm a little concerned about how long until the elastic gets stretched out. I've used it twice now and I can already see a little stretching in it. But for now, it looks great and does a great job keeping my saddle in place. Time will tell on how long the elastic stays looking good.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs huge! One of the ladies at my barn has one of these. Her horse is a 17 hand big-bodied warm blood mare, and this was almost too big! I helped her adjust it and we had everything at the smallest hole. I ride her horse for her sometimes and use this breastplate when I do, and I can say that it does it's job and looks great doing it. I was going to buy it if she liked it, but as my horse is a little more petite, I wont be buying it. It's great, just waaaay huge!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The leather is soft right out of the bag and is good quality for the price. My 16hh Thoroughbred mare is fairly petite and I had to punch several holes in the leather to make it fit, but I was expecting that anyway. Unfortunately when I was adjusting one of the sides of the collar near the d ring, I pulled on the leather a little too hard and it cracked the leather a little, so I was annoyed that it did that the first time I used it. However I can't afford a $200+ breastcollar and you get what you pay for. The elastic is beautiful navy color and looks great on my grey horse. The running attachment is also very nice and has holes to adjust the length. Overall for the price, the leather is good, just not the best. I would probably recommend this to someone but just tell them to be careful not to pull too hard on the leather like I did.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at a great price! Soft, supple leather. Fit my 15 hand Appy perfectly! Absolutely no rub marks or chafing. Only thing that would be nice would be color options ;)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Breastplate I got this breastplate for a 16.2 dutch warmblood. I love the breastplate, the only thing is it runs big. It would be nice if they would make it a little smaller. I have it on the last holes and it's still slightly large. The good thing about it is it would be very easy to punch some holes in, or don't use the clips to the dee's and it makes it more snug too. Overall, great quality just a little large.
