Re: [RC] leather vs neoprene cruppers - heidi larson

I use a neoprene one I purchased from Moss Rock and love it.  Have not had any problems with it whatsoever and my horse doesn't mind wearing it.  And we've done some really steep ups and downs.

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 -
