First I think your girth is fine, you just need to even it out so that it is equal on both sides.
Second, you can get a set of Mecate reins - 22' of a continuous length rein that can be horse hair or marine line (typically ~5/8" size). It should run about $25.00 or less if you get lucky.
The way they are setup is to have one end tied to a slobber strap on the bit and looped the length you want and attached to a slobber strap on the other side of the bit. The excess is just looped over the horn on your saddle and used to lead your horse. Training ~ Mecates
Beautiful horse btw! I'm glad you got her back.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
