Do I need clips to attach the Breastplate to the Saddle?


The idea is is to always leave your breastplate ATTACHED to the saddle. That way, you never forget it when you go riding. To remove the breastplate, you simply first, unsnap the keeper holding the bottom of the breastplate to the girth, then unbuckle the single buckle on the near side down strap, then the breastplate is free of the saddle. THEN you uncinch. Then you simply toss the breastplate on top of the saddle along with the cinch, and put it in the tack room. You actually NEVER remove a breastplate from a saddle as you want to do with the clips. This way, you will NEVER forget the breastplate, because it will be attached to your saddle. Tacking up, first thing you do is cinch the saddle. Next thing you do is buckle the near side buckle on the breastplate, third thing you do is snap the breastplate strap that goes back thru the legs to the rings in the girth. Untacking, the first thing you do is unbuckle the near side down strap on the breastplate. then unbuckle the girth. If you unbuckle the girth first, and leave the breastplate attached, a horse is anxious to go the paddock, and be free, could pull back, get loose, and run off with the saddle still attached VIA THE BREASTPLATE. That is most certainly the potential of a major wreck, not to mention what it will do to your equipment. One more thing in that area of clipping breastplates , brass clips on the brass breastplate attachments to the saddle always dig into the leather of the saddle, and cause damage. Also, metal on metal wears, Leather on metal does not wear.
