Breast Collars Throughout History
Viewing a thread - Pulling Breastcollar VS Regular Breastcollar
The term breastplate is occasionally used, though western riders generally use breast collar to refer to both designs. Breast collars can attach to the saddle rigging or dee rings on the front of the saddle. In either case, an additional strap usually runs between the front legs and attaches to the cinch. Some western breast collars also have a wither strap. The pulling breast collar harness is popular among Western riders, particularly ranchers and ropers. The pulling style breast collar sits just above the line of a horse's shoulders and buckles around the pommel of the saddle. Ranchers, ropers, and others that prefer this style of breast collar, say that pulling breast collars allow the horse more freedom of shoulder movement and better leverage when pulling.
Do You Wish You Had a Pulling Collar?
Correct breast collar placement for a mule or donkey? The problem is that mules are v-shaped in their shoulders. Why does that matter? If you choose to use a horse breast collar which attaches to the rings on the saddle or a pulling collar which is the worst that attaches to the pommel, it is going to pull the saddle forward.
