Breastplate

Breastplate 

A breastplate is a piece of riding equipment, used to keep the saddle or harness on a horse from sliding back. It not only secures the saddle, but still allows a horse's big shoulder's to move and gives the rider something to hold onto. Sometimes horses need them specifically for a job they do.

In medieval weaponry, the breastplate is the front portion of plate armour covering the torso.
The priestly breastplate was a sacred breastplate worn by the High Priest of the Israelites, according to the Book of Exodus. In the biblical account, the breastplate is sometimes termed the breastplate of judgment, because the Urim and Thummim were placed within it.
