I use that one as well, except in the felt rather than neoprene. I've had a few horses get rubbed from neoprene.

Yeah, the felt are nice too. I just find that they collect and hold sweat and that causes the girth to rub worse than the neoprene.. I really like this series of girth though, especially that I can just strip it off, wash it, it wears nice on all of my horses.. I also ride with a loose saddle so it helps "grip" if that makes sense.

I still like good old mohair. Or the new alpaca cinches.

As for the latigos and off billets, I used to like nylon because it would slide over itself and tighten easier. But a neighbor got me into using leather, and you know, I use leather on both of my saddles now! I got used to the extra "stick" when it slides over itself (and to make it less sticky, avoid saddle soap on your latigo). Now I think nylon looks kind of cheap.

I use the Professional Choice VenTech and love them. They are my favorite so far.


Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
