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'!).

Complete adjustability and comfort for your horse. Classic blue and white elastic portion (1.5" wide) provides extra give in shoulder area.

    Antares Elastic Breastplate is rated 4.6957 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great breastplate too short martingale I bought this breastplate a couple of years ago. It has held up well and fits my large 17'2" thoroughbred gelding well. However- the martingale attachment is WAY to short and if used would function more like draw reins. I didn't buy it for that feature - so I am still pleased with the item- but for the price it would be nice to have a functional attachment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best quality; stands the test of time! I love this breastplate! It functions perfectly, easy and efficient to put on, and does its job! The leather is well padded and soft and noticeably extremely high quality. I recently purchased a second one to replace my old one. My old one was a few years old... And still worked just as perfectly as it has since day one. The color did fade a little but it has withstood grueling weather and use with no issue. The elastic stayed intact and has not stretched! It definitely does run a little big; my 17.2 warmblood is in a 2 with plenty of room to adjust! I highly recommend this breastplate; not just because it's gorgeous, but for the quality and usage you will get from it. It's second to none. It is pricey, but will hold up much longer than the cheaper versions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I bought this breastplate a couple weeks ago, and was a little doubtful after reading some reviews. Honestly though, it's a great product and I love it. Get compliments everywhere for it, and it looks great on my horse. Does run large, as I have a 16.1h Dutch WB who fits cob easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this BRILLANTLY engineered breast plate This Antares breastplate(BP) is my favorite piece of tack. The BP is masterfully designed for quick and non cumbersome tacking up. The leather is beautiful and the elastic holds up. I bought my first Antares BP about a year ago and it is holding up beautifully. Having just purchased a larger horse I did not hesitate buying a second larger Antares BP. Yes the BP is pricey but you will be so happy with the product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this!!! I love this breast collar. Unlike other breast collars it keeps it's form instead of stretching out over time, it does a great job at holding my saddle in place on a horse that (even in a saddle that fits her perfectly) cannot manage to ever have the saddle stay where I was it to be. It is also easy to clean and looks great! I am constantly getting compliments on it wherever I go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice elastic breastplate! Very lovely elastic breastplate. Pretty colors, leather was super soft out of the bag and high quality. Great idea with the clips--much easier to take on and off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great breastplate I do not write many reviews, but I had to for this. It is a lovely, lovely breastplate. The leather is so soft and such high quality, and the navy/white is really sharp on my bay horse.I originally ordered a size 2 for my light boned 16.1 TB gelding, and was surprised to find that it was too small for him, especially after reading the other reviews. For reference, he takes a ~medium tree saddle and wears 78" Rambo blankets. The 3 fits perfectly and gives me more flexibility for use on other horses.The only thing I would change is the snaps that connect the breastplate to the saddle. They are kind of dinky and seem breakable to me, and I found them hard to use. The snaps on the Hartwich Smartpak breastplate are much, much better and I have ordered some similar ones to replace the snaps provided on the Antares.In summary - expensive, but worth it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overpriced for an elastic girth Quite disappointed with the price of this breastplate! For this amount of money I could buy many other things. I know Antares is known for its amazing quality which is why I wanted to try this product out, after using it for quite some time nothing amazing stood out to me, I was not blown away with this product.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
