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'!).

Arc De Triomphe® leather goods are made from the finest French natural leather, allowed to mature gradually during the vegetable tanning process in pits, which creates a durable product with a smooth soft finish. Each piece of leather is unique and may have slight surface markings which are inherent to a natural "full grain" top quality hide. The Imperial Breastplates have never-rust stainless steel buckles, made in Germany by Herm Sprenger. Brown. Cob, Full or O/S. Running, standing or no attachment.

    Arc de Triomphe Imperial Breastplate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nicely functional I bought this breastplate after trying 4 others to fit my 17+ hand Thoroughbred. He is so tall that most "horse" size breastplates don't seem to fit him. So, fyi I guess this one runs big as I ordered the oversize, too, and returned it. We do hunters and I didn't want/need an elastic jumper breastplate. The others that I tried were definitely prettier and higher quality leather but I had to go with this one for size reasons. That being said, this one seems well made and is perfectly functional, the side decorative stitching is pretty.. It's just that the leather is stiff and seems a little "cheap." (Disappointing to me as the price was in the high mid-range). It also has some sort of weird black sealer on the edges that leaks and gunks up a bit. I'm hoping with good leather care and breaking in it will improve over time!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! I bought this about 4 years ago, when I needed a running martingale with a breastplate. This was the only one I could find, so I bought it! I'm glad I did- it is full of quality! The leather is soft and supple and very eye-catching. The stitching is top notch with fine detail. The value was very fair, it is a high price, but for extreme quality! It wasn't very durable, though. It wore out fast and became kind of moldy, even with lots of cleaning and good care. It was a bad downfall, but I'm still quite happy with my purchase. It's got all the pluses, it just needs a bit more care. Do yourself a favor- buy this!

    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...
