    I saw this on FB, it was at the San Angelo rodeo. My worst nightmare. If running barrels doesn't work out there might be a couple of stock contractors interested lol

    I guess that's what happens when Horses don't wear a breast collar!

    This is why I refuse to do any work past an easy, slow workout without a breast collar. I prefer a back cinch as well, but don't need it.

    Now when someone calls my blingy breast collar “unnecessary equipment” I have somewhere to point them, I suppose. :D

    “It’s there ‘just in case.’” :p

    On an English saddle, by wimpy little D Rings, no. Attached to the cinch rings on a Western saddle, the saddle is not sliding back.

    well it will if you have the situation like the OP.......that ripped right outta the saddle.....

    Plus many western saddles have Drings attached, which would be just as wimpy as on an english saddle ;)
