Martingales & Breastplates

A martingale is a piece of equestrian tack which has been designed to control the head carriage of the horse during both riding and driving disciplines. It can be a useful training aid to help control temperamental behaviour of horses during riding, by preventing the horse from lifting its head above the angle of control. Martingales are available in different styles, including Running Martingales, Standing Martingales and Irish Martingales.

A breastplate is a piece of riding equipment which fits across the horse’s chest, and is used to prevent the horse’s saddle from slipping back. A breastplate may be particularly useful for horses with large shoulders and a flat ribcage. A breastplate is also a great safety feature, particularly in disciplines such as cross country, by providing extra security of the saddle in the event of the girth breaking or a similar hazard, allowing the rider more time to stop the horse.

Here at Unicorn Saddlery, we have a great range of martingales and breastplates in a variety of styles, suitable for various equestrian disciplines. The products within our range have all been carefully selected for their quality, and are provided by some of the leading brands on the equestrian market, including Dever and Jeffries.
