Because I like being matchy, matchy with my tack and riding equipment, I was excited to get a breastplate from Two Horse Tack in the same wine color as the mule bridle.
This actually arrived a while ago and I first tried it out on Nilla before she was off work. I only got the running martingale for Levi, but wanted to try everything on Nilla to make sure it all worked out. I love how easy the running martingale attachment is to clip on or take off. I could see this being really great for endurance riders who might need the martingale in the morning when their horse is really excited, but want to remove it for later loops when it wasn’t needed.
The breastplate has a ton of adjustability so it fits both Nilla and Levi who are 15hh and 16.2 respectively. There are holes for adjustment along both shoulders, between the legs, and on both saddle connector straps. The running martingale attachment is also adjustable.
Normally, we do quite a bit of trail riding and endurance in the summer and this is when I would use a beta biothane breastplate. However, this summer, with our horses being variously injured, we haven’t done much and I haven’t used the breastplate as much as I would like. I did use the breastplate for Levi when we went horse camping.
The breastplate held up well and rinsed off with a hose afterwards, which is really the best part of this type of tack: the ease of cleaning. Well, that and the pretty colors.
I know I’d get kicked out of the show ring for using colored tack, but it is nice for schooling since it’s so easy to clean and I can keep my nice, leather tack clean and ready for shows.

I really like that wine color on Levi
That wine color on palomino/cream-based coats is so perfect.
I know. It really makes me wish I’d gone that color for Nilla.
your matching tack game is on point, as the kids would say. and thanks for the coupon!! i really want of those buckle nose halters…
The buckle nose halter are the bomb 😀
I’ll put that on my list.
I’ve been thinking of getting one of those two.
I got the sidepull/bitless bridle (it’s convertible) for Rio, and I really like it. I got the hunter green with brown overlay cause I like matchy matchy too 🙂
Levi looks so handsome in that burgundy color.
We have that same side/pull/bitless for Shasta and really like it. Hers is just green.
Levi is looking FANCY!
I dunno about fancy, but maybe one day.
I love my 2HT breast collar 🙂 And I LOVE the wine color on yours…
It’s really made me want all the wine colored things for Levi.
I love the biothane tack – Spud’s harness is all biothane and it is so easy to clean.
The ease of cleaning is really the best part.
I love their products and have quite a few items from them. They have terrific service, too.
It’s good stuff.
Love the color, and happy to hear you still like it after using it – mine’s still hanging up.
I have a problem even matching the clothes I wear everyday so bravo to you for making your horse match!
My daily clothing is so much less organized. I’m usually one step up from hobo.
