No guns allowed in England. Its a big NO NO. However, We don't 'do' guns unless its to shoot a pheasant. On the other hand, there are a criminal fraternity from some cultures who smuggle guns into the country and we are seeing more and more gunshot victims. I work in ER in a London hospital and it breaks my heart trying to save the life of a 13 year old kid who was shot because he belonged to the 'wrong' gang. Gang culutre is new but starting to increase in the UK. One reason I am moving out of London! :(

I have a 36 inch dressage girth that is on the second to last hole on both sides and I can only use a thin saddle pad. I see girth extensions in our future!

I have a 58" girth strap for Patrick. I think Clydesdales may be somewhat rounder and if anyone tells me I have a fat horse...I'll bring him round and let him deal with you! LOL

Non dressage girth is a 60 inch for my baby. Dressage is a 36 inch. Do they make them any bigger? I sure hope so! :)

I ride an 18.1hh Belgian draft horse :). And yes... I actually am doing poles with him... I do gymkhanas with my big guy, because it is the only way my youngest daughter would do the events... her quote was "Dad, if I'm going to do it, you have to too!"
smrobs and soenjer55 like this.

PercheronMom, I have a 62" giraffe print english girth that I used with Big John initially... I now ride western :). I can't remember where I got it from, but it wasn't too expensive.

OMG! Are you saying that your baby takes a 60" western cinch??
My new Trakehner girl that everyone thinks looks drafty takes a 40" I thought that was big.

NOOOoooo! LOL! He's big, but not that big! I'm saying he took a 62" girth with my english saddle.. his western cinch is actually not particularly huge, maybe 40", but the offside billet is on it's last hole, and the latigo strap is pretty long, so that may be a function of my saddle more than anything else.
