 I like the elastic ones for jumping personally. I also prefer the ones with the strap across their wither, although you can get the V shaped ones.

I have a leather one and one which is leather and elastic, personally I like them both.  My part elastic one was made for me by a master saddler and is dark green with a gold border down each side and matches one of my saddle cloths - it is for Sammy, it was made along with his wide cavesson bridle.  The leather one I like for dressage, I can take the martingale part off and just have it as a breast plate and it helps keep my dressage saddle secure, because it is plain leather it is nicer for dressage.

Re: Leather/Elastic Breastplates?! Which one?

both of mine have the Kincade leather/elastic one, elastic is good for jumping as when the horse stretches to jump it has enough lee-way but not too much that the saddle slips. they are a good price too, roughly around £30
