Padded Breeching 744

This breeching is perfect for your packhorse or mule. It helps keep the saddle in place on downhill stretches without hindering your animal's gait.

It's adjustable and has a padded butt strap for comfort. Conway buckle adjustments on four over-hip straps and at-top saddle connector straps ensure a proper fit.

Breechings are almost always part of a pack-saddle rigging. If you're going to use the breeching on a riding saddle, you need to have two crupper/breeching dee rings on your saddle. A saddle breeching will not work with a single crupper dee.


The breeching lays behind the animal's thighs and attaches to the saddle with two straps to the back of the saddle as well as two straps to the rigging. To properly fit the breeching...

  • Attach the breeching to the two dee rings behind the seat of your saddle, adjusting the length so that the hop pad of the breeching lays halfway between the croup and the base of the tail.

  • Adjust the four straps coming off the hip pad so that the breeching is about 4" below the rear-most point of the rump.

  • Adjust the angle of the breeching to match the natural angle of the animal's haunches - this will ensure that the breeching is laying flat against the animal's leg and won't rub at the top of the breeching.

  • Adjust the straps that attach to your saddle's rigging so that you can slide 4 fingers between the breeching and your animal's haunches.

Incredibly streamlined and easy. I am absolutely blown away by the service horse saddle shop provided me. I am naturally a very indecisive person and incredibly picky when it comes to my gear, so after months of shopping and reading my boyfriend suggested here. He also had a positive experience. I browsed their wide selection of used saddles and there it was, MY saddle. The chat staff was incredibly helpful and my saddle was here 4 days later even with free shipping! The saddle was accurately represented in the photos is far from "used". I'm thrilled, to say the least. Thank you!

After so much searching and being nervous about ordering a saddle online. I picked up the phone and called the Horse Saddle Shop to ask a few questions about a used saddle that was on their website. They were so nice and helpful. I ordered my very lightly used Circle Y saddle and a new saddle pad. It arrived very quickly. Only a few days. I LOVE my new saddle. In great condition and rides great! I would highly recommend using them for your tack needs. I know I will be in the future!

I am so happy with the saddle I just bought as a surprise gift for my partner. He was so happy and loves it. I love the customer service and deals you offer if you wait for them. Thank you Horse Saddle Shop we have 2 saddles from you now and couldn't be happier. I have also bought boots here too and they did not fit, HSS was great with the return.
