Baroque breastplates at Picadera
The purpose of the breastplate is to prevent the saddle from sliding backwards. Many jerky and sweeping changes of pace, such as during speed trail in working equitation, can encourage shifting. However, it is not a solution for ill-fitting saddles. The breastplate also serves as a fancy accessory. It is an eye-catcher at baroque shows and at competitions. The breastplate is attached to the rings on the left and right side of the saddle by the two shorter straps. The long strap is hooked between the front legs on the middle D-ring of the saddle girth.
At Picadera the PORTUGUES Baroque breastplate is available in light brown, brown and black cowhide. The model has gold or silver colored Cortesia buckles that match any Baroque saddle. For riders who want something more delicate, there is the narrow CORELLI breastplate in black and brown with gold and silver Cortesia buckles.
