I just received my Sea Elite horse collar and all I can say is that I am very surprised! What a well-made BC! This is made as well as my Zeagle 911 or better. The materials are first rate and so is the hardware(except for the plastic d-rings which I replaced with stainless split-rings). If you are looking for a super value for a horse collar, this is it. It is far better than the competitions horse collar bc, and the competition is charging another $80! If you are thinking of trying this one, go ahead and do it, you will not be sorry! A super value for the money.
