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'!).

The wither pad and the girth attachment are generously padded with soft calfskin. Decorative signature Antares stitching on the wither pad and Antares stud at the center of the neck portion.

    Antares Elastic Breastplate is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything You've Ever Wanted I received this breastplate as my one and only gift for my 15th birthday. It is extremely expensive: let's just get over that right away because it is seriously worth every penny. I've always admired them, horses just look so good in blue and white, and they are just as good as you have ever imagined. Leather is soft, doesn't oil real dark with Hydrophane but Antares oil could have different results. If I wanted it darker I might try that, but it's darkened a touch with use and it is beautiful. The elastic is super durable, just a touch of give so that the horse can use its shoulders. Holds up great, cleans up well. I bought a 2 for my 16.2 Thoroughbred, I would definitely go for a 3 for anything bigger than that.Buy it. Seriously, you will not regret it. It is effective, beautiful, and extraordinary quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product Excellent product. Superior quality. Ease of fitting. Kind of pricey, however you get what you pay for. My horse LOVES it because my saddle does not slip any longer causing him back pain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous breastplate! This is a genuinely stunning piece of equipment. It's been beautifully crafted and there was not a stitch out of place! I love the look of the blue and white elastic against the leather, and it matches my boy's Antares boots perfectly. However, like another poster, I had some very small issues with leather quality. Unfortunately the breastplate did not oil evenly all over, and there were a few patches that appeared to refuse oil. They are not large - quite small actually - and hardly visible, so it hasn't been a big concern. It's still a beautiful piece of equipment! I am really looking forward to showing with it this summer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from very disapointed in leather quality This is my second review - my first was before I actually used the breastplate & it is gorgeous out of the box. I did oil it and condition it before using it but after only one event the leather is unevenly worn, colored and dry. I have been oiling it and conditioning it every night to try to restore it but a piece at this price point should be of much better quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Breastplate I get excited every time I use this breastplate! The leather is so soft and doesn't need oiled the way it is. I love love love how every piece has an easy clip instead of buckles. Fits my horse great, looks great. The elastic allows just enough stretch to be comfortable for my horse, but not too much to let my saddle slip. I love this breastplate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful breastplate I was thrilled to get this breastplate for Christmas - it is a gorgeous piece of tack. I have the horse size for my 15.3h TB, I will need to punch a few holes to make the running martingale rings the correct length but the breastplate itself is slightly tight, which is good – a little room for the elastic to stretch as I’m sure it will as it breaks in so I’d say the sizing is pretty correct. It didn’t need much oil, the leather is very nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality! Qaulity! Quality! I couldn't be happier with the quality of this breastplate! It more than lives up to the Antares name in tack. Nicely padded in all the right areas, supple leather and a perfect fit!
