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.
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.
My riding instructors found this and suggested It might work well for me. I absolutely love it! I have been riding for about 4 years and bought my first horse 2 years ago. He is a beautiful draft Q horse cross. About 15 years old. He was used as a pack/trail horse his whole life until I got him. Now he is an English gentleman. We have come a
long way together. Training in dressage and now small xrails jumps. The Correct Connect breastplate has instantly improved my riding and his response. It took me no time at all to get use to holding the toggles. They felt so comfortable and natural in my hands. It is by far the best addition to my tack. Very functional in regards to a breastplate to keep the saddle in place. Making me feel secure in trot canter transitions. Keeping my hand in a good position ( not pulling up causing my horse to get tense). The additional neck strap to grab in those ‘moments’ where you need extra security. Everything feels very comfortable and natural. The quality is outstanding!
Need patience while awaiting delivery, took longer than predicted by company (To Ireland).
The quality of the breastplate is good, nicely padded & soft around chest area.
The toggles take a bit of getting used to, having extra bulk in your hands & it makes adjusting you rein length more complicated.
However once you get comfortable the breastplate definitely helps with hand steadiness & placement while jumping.
It is expensive, especially with delivery & customs charges overseas, but worth saving for & would recommend.
This is so worth the money. In one week my trainer can already see the difference and my horse can totally feel the difference. Not only am I riding from my legs and body verses my hands I’m also riding straighter with a horse that’s not having her mouth touched so much. I will keep using on a daily basis when schooling at home. Great product!
I bought a new mare over a year ago. I’ve been struggling with her as she is very sensitive in the mouth but also very forward. My anxiety kicked in with her and I found myself constantly holding her back and being in her face, which really irritated her. The more upset she got, the tighter I held... a nasty vicious cycle that had me contemplating if I needed to sell this horse because I just couldn’t get myself to trust her enough to let go.
Ordered this breastplate. First of all the quality of the leather and workmanship is stunning. It took half a dozen rides to tweak it perfectly with length of the attachments and such (would have been faster if I had an instructor around more often to help). My mare is soooooooo much happier and I feel more confident riding. It has helped me gain confidence and probably saved my relationship with this horse. I know I won’t be able to use it forever and eventually will have to get rid of the crutch, but for now, as we develop our partnership, it’s been worth every single penny I paid for it. Can’t recommend it enough.
