Re: [RC] Breastplates & Cruppers - Katrina Mosshammer

When you feel the horse's withers underneath your butt...time to get a crupper. Winking smile emoticon But seriously, I ride in a treeless so I could actually feel when my saddle was too far forward (I could literally feel her withers underneath my crotch) and I've ridden with a crupper ever since and not had anymore problems with saddle slippage. I don't think it would be as easy for me to tell if I rode in a treed saddle.

I assume that a LITTLE slipping is ok and normal, as you'd really have to have the breastplate and crupper really tight to avoid ANY slipping.  How much slipping is too much?  At what point does it indicate that you need a breastplate or crupper?  The need for a breastplate is a little more obvious (if the saddle slips back and you're sitting on their butt, lol), but the crupper seems a little less obvious to me.  Thanks!
