The Empathy MK4 Contour Breastplate is a careful blend of ancient and proven harness systems, with new lightweight materials that combine strength, with low maintenance and maximum comfort.
Research into the ideal breastplate shape has been meticulously researched right back to the days of the charioteers of ancient Greece. Studies of load bearing areas and the horse's skeletal and muscular anatomy have all been taken into consideration. the result is a breastplate that combines the load bearing and efficiency of a full breastplate with lightness and a more versatile and adjustable fitting.
The MK4 Empathy works with the horse's conformation by allowing greater freedom of movement through the shoulder, enabling the horse to pull a load with minimum restriction to limb movement or pressure on the shoulder joint.
The trace buckle now features a pivoting ring which allows a more comfortable fit across the shoulder, regardless of the line of draft. This allows the collar to rotate with the movement of the horse's shoulders, and allows greater freedom of movement.
The new and improved design allows the empathy collar to be used for single or pair simply be changing the quick release trace fitting.
