Dressage girth

I was recommended to look into Piaffe or Passage dressage girths (The Passage Dressage Girth by Nunn Finner and The Piaffe Dressage Girth by Nunn Finer). I wonder if anyone has/had one, and can share experience.

I know for my horse, both those girths would be too thick for him. I finally settled on a Schleese 8" contoured girth and have been very happy with it.
Of those two I would prefer the piaffe girth because it can be adjusted so independently.

Good luck!

I have the 8" Schleese contoured girth as well. I've had it for 5 years and it has held up well.

Do you mean too wide? Or actual thickness of the material? And does the thickness influence something?

I'll look into Schleese girth. Thank you, ladies, for recommendation!

I looked into the pic of Schleese girth. Just curious... What is the reason it's so wide in middle? Better tension distribution or something?

Too wide in the elbow area, it will cause rubs.

The Schleese is wide in the middle to help with stabilization. I like it haha I don't know if it actually does that though :P

I see what you are saying. Thanks for explaining! I have Pro-Choice at the moment, and it looks as wide as those Piaffe/Passage ones. I also tried "anatomically shaped", and it seemed to work worth on my qh (and she didn't like it).

I have the Piaffe. It is very attractive and well made, but as Anabel mentioned, I cannot use it on my mare because it rubs her. I know a lot of people who are very happy with it, though.

I also have the Piaffe and absolutely love it. I owned the same girth when I leased a TB last year, then repurchased it in my new mares size...fit both mares well.

I did some more research on Internet and decided to give Piaffe a try. Will see if it'll rub (Pro-Choice I'm using is rather wide too). Thank you, All, for opinions!
