Elastic Breastplate  keeps the saddle from slipping backwards.  Elastic straps give and take with the mothion of the horse's shoulders. Attaches to girth and fall down staples* on the front of your saddle.   Can be converted to running or standing “martingale” with the use of attachments.   Adjustable elastic side straps give with your horse’s movements.  *Breastplate straps should always be attached to a saddle’s fall down staples rather than the saddle’s dees.  Fall down staples are much stronger and are located under the front of the skirts covering the stirrup bars.

McBrideTM martingales, breastplates and training products are made of the finest English and European leathers and stainless steel hardware:


·          Full grain cowhide for durability.  The epidermis (top grain of leather) is the strongest, most abrasion resistant part of leather.

·          McBride leather is aniline finished – never pigment (painted) finished.  (Paint can cover flaws in leather and seals the surface, stopping proper penetration when you oil your tack.)  We use only first quality hides, tanned and curried to look good, accept oil and darken and mellow as you use your tack.

·          Stainless steel buckles and hardware – polished, strong and rustproof.


McBride martingales, breastplates and training products are beautifully finished - carefully hand stitched, creased, edged and hand rubbed as English bridlemakers have done for centuries.  G. McBride & Son offers this exceptional quality at a very frugal price.  Imported.
