Glaze & Gordon Hunting Breastplate - Heavyweight
*Black available to pre-order for delivery early November 2020.
The chunkier version of our classic G&G hunting breastplate, ideal for bigger framed horses from Cobs to Irish Draughts.
Like is lighter weight brother, this is a super smart, and exceptional quality adjustable leather breastplate from our very own Glaze & Gordon branded range and is created from the best leather available and finished with solid BRASS hardware. It is handcrafted using leather from one of the most prestigious tanneries in the USA - Wickett & Craig. If a full martingale/breastplate option is required, combine this with our G&G martingale attachment.
We have worked closely with our leather maker to include all the details you need in a breastplate, from the clips that attach to the saddle d-rings to the adjustable fork straps and the easy to remove girth loop. Whether it's to help keep your saddle in place, or because you prefer the look of a breastplate with a martingale attachment over a martingale; this breastplate is brilliantly stylish and functional. G & G are confident you will not be able to match the quality and craftsmanship for a comparative price.
This breastplate is available at a lower price when purchased as part of a full bridle through our Build Your Own Bridle service in the bridle section of the website. Running martingale attachment is available to match.
After searching far and wide for leather we think brings the 'lux' to 'deluxe' we finally found it across the pond at family-run leather makers in the United States and Argentina. Our artisans have been working with all sorts of leather wear for over 40 years and use the best leather from their respective countries. Their vast experience gives Glaze & Gordon huge amounts of scope to add to our leatherwork range. We can also take bespoke orders; so do email us if you have specific requirements email@example.com
We have always prided ourselves on buying quality, however one day one of our leather pieces snapped at the buckle on a reputable branded item – its turns out the fitting wasn't even solid, and was filled with sand. This sent us on a search for new leather, but we never found exactly what we were looking for so decided to get our own made! We had the heavyweight version made to suit our strong, big chested Irish hunter, Zag
These breastplates are most definitely smart enough to be worn for best but without the price tag, so whether you are happy hacking or on the road to HOYS this breastplate is suited to you.
