A Bridle Is...

A bridle is a piece of equipment put on a horse's head to communicate with it while it is being ridden. A bridle is made up of two basic parts:

It's not uncommon to hear a headstall, by itself, referred to as a bridle. Technically, of course, this isn't correct but it's sometimes done when horse people - including the ones that know the difference - are speaking casually.

A Breast Collar Is...

A breast collar is a piece of equipment added to a saddle that helps to keep the saddle in the proper place. A breast collar attaches to one side of the saddle, then goes across the front of the horse (aka the breast) and attaches to the other side of the saddle.

The primary job of a breast collar is to keep the saddle from sliding too far back, but it can also help to keep the saddle from tipping side-to-side. Breast collars are considered by many horse people in both English and Western riding disciplines to be an essential piece of equipment.
