Correct Connect's™ 3-in-1 Training Breastplate


HUGE best-seller! Our 3-in-1 Training Breastplate has helped many riders worldwide of all levels and backgrounds. From learning to balance while posting the trot to helping riders establish a correct and direct connection to the horse's mouth.  This training aid helps riders and horses fix MANY issues with just one piece of equipment! 

The T-Grips attached to breastplate limit the amount the rider can pull back while connecting the hands in a straight line from the bit to the elbow.  This encourages a softer elbow and more relaxed connection. Horses tend to be more uphill in a more correct carriage when ridden in this aid. 

This product does not rely on leverage and is not a shortcut.  It does not force a horse's head into a locked position but instead helps the RIDER find the correct forward feeling of riding a horse into the contact.  

Helps fix common faults of:

-Widening and lowering the hands to pull the horses head down. 

-Hanging onto the horse's mouth for balance

-Catching the horse's mouth on the backside of a jump.  

-Pulling on the inside rein to turn. 

-Locked elbows

Correct Connect’s™ 3-in-1 breastplate combines stunning craftsmanship with the practical functionality of using it as a plain breastplate, with a neck strap, or with it's unique training attachment.  Adjustable leather and elastic breastplate attaches to the D rings for saddle stability allows for freedom of movement in the shoulder. 

 HOW TO MEASURE FOR YOUR BREASTPLATE:  Using a measuring tape, measure from D-Ring to D-Ring around the horses chest. Measurements can be a little loose as you do not want the breastplate too tight and the t-grips should not be too low.  

Pony: 40"-49" or 102cm-124.5cm

Horse 49"-62" or 102cm-158cm

OS- 58"-66"or 147cm-168cm

  • Rubber lined Leather Attachable neck strap to conform to FEI neck strap rule. 
  • Loop to attach standing or running martingale. 
  • Fully adjustable and detachable leather T grips to help riders learn hand position stability and understand the horses seeking reflex to ride forward to the bridle. Great for dressage and jumping!  
  • In black or brown
  • Consider warming your horse up before using the t-grips and make sure they are loose enough to keep from restricting your arms too much. 
  • We recommend using under the watchful eye of a qualified instructor for best results! 

Fitting Instructions:

1. Collar should fit softly around the base of the neck and attach to the D rings of the saddle 

2.  Toggles can attach to one of two rings on the collar based on horse size.  

3. To help the horse seek the contact, gently lift up against the horses neck.  

4. Most riders prefer to hold the toggle between the their middle and ring finger with their reins held normally between the ring and little finger.

They are awesome! I love using them to help steady my hands and keep connection

Love the Position Reminder!

Throw away the wooden dowels and the need for crops behind the back! The Position Reminder holds the rider’s shoulders back and chest open! I will use this on all my riders!

Used my trainers for a while before I bought one. Had helped my wiggley horse tremendously to stay straight and carry over his back in dressage. In jumping has helped our conversations stay with the body/ half halt with seat and not tutn into a hand/ mouth conversation as much

Great Training Aid

I am obsessed with this, my kids may not love it as much as I do because it makes them focus a little more in their riding but it is an absolutely amazing training aid to really help my riders ride more from their seats and not allow them to brace, use their hands to pull the horse in, or see-saw. I’ve really appreciated the improvements I’ve seen when using the correct connect.

My trainer loved it too

I bought this in hopes that it would help to block my impulse to micromanage my 5 year old warmblood gelding’s stride. We’d been jumping mini crossrails and pole courses at most with some inconsistent pacing and wiggles, but on my first day using this, my trainer had us jumping our first grid (and oxers!) with a straight, through canter. My horse felt so much happier and simpler beneath me. He’s a trier, but he “checks out” when he’s confused, so having this to remind me to keep things simple is a game changer. Just be prepared to feel it in your abs. I knew I could get picky through my hands (hence the reason I bought this), but I didn’t realize exactly how much I wasn’t using my core! This isn’t for anyone who wants the easy way out.
