And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Antares Elastic Breastplate is rated 4.6538 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful leather, not right for me and my horse. I bought this breastplate for my delicate thoroughbred because my saddle often slips and I liked that it had the running martingale attachment included. While the breastplate alone was absolutely beautiful (nice leather, beautifully crafted), and the cob-size did technically fit, I found that the thickness/width of the leather and elastic (combined with the bold print of the elastic), was overwhelming on her small frame. She looked like she was being swallowed alive by her tack! If I had a larger, warmblood-type horse I wouldn't hesitate to buy this breastplate (it's gorgeous!) again, but on a smaller horse it looks a little ridiculous. I really can't speak to the durability of this product, but I gave it full stars because the workmanship looked like it would be long-lasting, and I know that Antares makes quality products.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice quality and style Well made, true to size. Nice stitching, but the colors were not my taste.

    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.

    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...
