    Default 5 point breastplate? Elastic. No sheepskin. Med brown. Ideas?

    Title pretty much says it all.
    Want nice quality leather, not dark brown or black.
    Trying to avoid sheepsking disks because I think they'll be a dirty mess.
    Lower straps must not clip (girth does not have D rings), but rather buckle around the billets.
    I'm not picky, am I???
    Thanks!!

    this one just has what looks like felt instead of sheepskin. There other 5 way has sheepskin that is removable to wash.

    ...or since Bartville's already building the aforementioned Nunn Finer 5-Way with removable (or no) sheepskin and elastic side straps, just ask them to build it with their chestnut leather or medium brown instead of havana. Problem solved and it'll probably still be under $150 shipped.

    This one is relatively inexpensive and comes in London, which is the lighter brown as well as brown which is a medium brown http://www.bellbusksaddlery.co.uk/Pa...artingale.aspx

    this comes in two shades of brown: http://www.tackroominc.com/amerigo-c...te-p-7122.html

    All leather australian http://www.wagners.com.au/saddlery/p...large/bb-2.htm

    and an inexpensive, slightly alternate design http://www.hold-your-horses.com/Five-Point-Breastplate

    Passier calls theirs havana, but it is more a medium brown (much pricier than above option) http://www.passier.com/en/accessories/breastplates/

    Also, really nice but expensive http://www.antares-sellier.com/index...=19&Itemid=100

    voltaire does one http://en.voltaire-design.com/accessories.html
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    Oooh so many nice ones! I'm kinda partial to the Nunn Finer and Antares!! I have an Antares saddle, so I know those would look fab together!! That could be a nice Christmas present for myself.
