[RC] leather vs neoprene cruppers - Jennifer Adam

Hi -
I've been shopping for a crupper but I'm not sure which is better - neoprene or leather? I found this great tack shop in Carthage Missouri and they have been so helpful - but they said they felt that leather was better for the horse. The neoprene feels softer to me and seems like it would be more comfortable, but they said that some horses develop irritation with the neoprene when they get sweaty. They have a really nice neoprene crupper for $55 and a leather crupper for $35, so it doesn't seem like they would recommend leather w/o having a reason. What do you all think? How many use a leather crupper and how many use neoprene?

Thanks for your input -
Jen Adam
