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'!).

Why We Love This

The Harwich Elastic Breastplate is built to last for everyday schooling!  Made with eye catching SmartPak Blue elastic which allows for greater freedom of movement while your horse is moving or jumping. The elastic inserts minimize the restriction on your horses shoulders yet still making sure your saddle is stabilized properly.

Favorite Features

  • Made from vegetable tanned North American leather
  • Dark blue stretch inserts for added comfort on the horse
  • Running martingale attachment included

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leather cracked! This breastplate runs pretty big; I got it primarily because I can't find a running martingale that fits my short-necked horse and needed the adjustable running attachment. Good job I didn't need a breastplate, because the horse size is too big to really function as such on my TB/Percheron mare. I tried to oil the snot out of the leather bits, and it didn't accept it very well. Then the parts that attach to the saddle cracked! If you need a lower price point or have a broad-shouldered horse, this may work for you.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality but big I bought this a month ago for my 3 yr old OTTB. He is still skinny and my saddle slips back. The breastplate is a little big but if I take off the clips to attach to the saddle it seems to fit quite well. The quality of the materials is good and the leather is soft.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Breastplate! I bought this about two months ago for my skinny Thoroughbred and it fits perfectly!!! I love that this product comes with the clips for the saddle attachment as most I found you have to loop the leather strap through. The blue looks so good against my bay horse! I would definitely recommend this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit great! Fit my stocky 14.3h paint well. He is usually in-between a cob and a horse size so i was worried about the fit. But I just took the clips off the ends and now it fits fine. Seems durable and softened up when I oiled it. Not the best quality leather, but waaaay better than what I was expecting for the price. It looks exactly like the picture shows.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super breastplate Awesome awesome AWESOME breastplate for the price!!! Keeps my saddle in place on my jumper, who has a scopy, hard jump. I found the leather loop that attaches to my girth to be a bit long, but I just punched another hole and isn't a problem. Love the navy and white! I have not used the running attachment but the leather seems to be of the same good quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Breastplate! This breastplate is very attractive and catches the eye. It is nice and supple, and overall the quality is great! My only complaint is that I had to take off the clips and double wrap in order to make it fit my bulky 16.2 gelding. Other than that, it is perfect! Very attractive and durable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Very glad I purchased this breastplate. My 17.3 Holsteiner was getting rubbed from the saddle slipping and this helps a ton. With how large he is, I still had to take off the clips and have it on the tightest holes so for smaller horses this may cause an issue. Definitely good for the price! Can't comment on durability due to me using it only a couple weeks.

    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...
