Tip of the Day: Positioning of loops for breast-plate.

IMG_6363A very experienced eventing friend of mine suggested this TOTD. She says that it is better to fix the top clips/straps of a breast-plate to the girth straps rather than to the Ds on the saddle or even to extra Ds looped on the stirrup bars, as having the anchoring position lower and further back keeps the saddle more stable and prevents it being pulled forward on to its points. I am giving it a go, using a pair of loops I already had (these ones), which I have fixed to the front girth strap and to the existing Ds with plaiting thread, to stop them from slipping down. So far so good, just as easy to use as the Ds on the saddle.
