Horse Breastplate

There are many different ways to make a paracord breast plate.  Here is my version using beads for a bit of interest (see free youtube instructions below).  I used trilobite and divided fishtail pattern for the sides, and cobra weave for the girth strap.  You can make an adjustable  strap for the wither strap and the side straps if you like, using micro paracord and a buckle.  See links below for items you may need.
