Breeching is essentially part of the braking system for the harness. It is fitted around the rear end of the horse. As the horse slows, it uses the breeching to provide a means with which to prevent the vehicle from running on.
Breeching is not generally used on leader horses (in tandem or team), as this function is taken care of by the wheeler horses. Some drivers also choose not to use breeching where the vehicle is very light and/or has very efficient braking systems - particularly on modern vehicles with disk brakes.
Lightweight and supple, WebZ breeching is constructed from purpose-woven two ply polypropylene webbing and lined with easy clean PVC padding for comfort.
The breeching seat is 60mm (2 1/4") wide and has 25mm double hip straps for extra stability. All stainless steel fittings.
