Frequently asked questions about Breastplates
Why do you use Breastplates while riding?
A Breastplate ensures that your saddle remains stable while jumping. You can also attach a martingale fork to the breast harness, which gives you not only a stable position of your saddle but also extra control during jumping.
How do you use a breastplate?
A breastplate attaches to your saddle and is at the bottom of the girth. This can be done on the front of the saddle where there are special rings, but some breast harnesses can also be attached to the side, then you attach the breast harness to the girth legs.
How do you clean a Breastplate?
Before polishing, clean the harness with a slightly damp cloth. If the breastplate is dirty, you can clean it with lukewarm water and a soft sponge before polishing. If necessary, use some saddle soap. Where possible, take the harness apart, so it can be cleaned and treated properly.
