I think that not all horses like the feel of leather versus something squishier, fluffier, or synthetic, but that varies from horse to horse. Some prefer it. The girth definitely feels best when it is conditioned and supple and will last you a lifetime if you keep it well cared for.
IW, I'm sorry for the dumb question, but that mid part should be placed towards the horse's front legs, right?
I think we have County representative in my area, so I may meet with her to look at it "in person".
