Wither Strap Function

In barrel racing some people like to use wither straps. Wither straps keep the breast collar of a horse from restricting the horse’s movement and inhibiting the horse’s stride. In a world where hundredths of a second come between winning and losing this is extremely important. The wither strap is a simple strap that can even be made out of a bungee cord with snaps on the two ends. Simply cut the cord to the correct length, where the strap picks the breast collar up to where it follows the shoulder and is no longer across the shoulder, apply snaps and you are ready to use your wither strap. You can also buy wither straps in varying colors from vendors as well.   photo (27)
