I wouldnt ride her until all her sores have healed. Even then you may have to watch for more girth sores. If she gets sores a lot you can get lambs wool covers for girths to stop rubbing or an anti-gall girth from wintec I think

Ok I will look around for white healer. I have an anti-gall girth now, but Im selling that saddle so I will keep in mind about that. Thanks for your advice!

I have an arab who gets girth gall. If he has sores, i'm like Jazzy, I swear by white healer, or if I have none, pawpaw ointment. Once it's healed, I ALWAYS keep his girth area clipped, it stopped dirt and sweat building up which was the main culprit. While it was bad, the anti-gall girth didn't help, I had to buy a REAL sheepskin girth cover. Don't go for the synthetic ones, they make it worse! I tried! Once he healed completely, I still keep it clipped and he doesn't need the girth cover any more, and hasn't gotten any gall for a long time.

Hope he is getting better!

Ok I will keep an eye on her with the anti-gall girth and I hope that will help. It seems too be healed now and she isnt as touchy around the area. Thanks!

I hope you don't plan on riding her until all the sores are healed. Poor thing has been the victim of bad horsemanship. Keep the wounds clean (betadine) and time. Certainly some antibiotics if there is anys sign of infection (pus, redness, swelling).
I hate to see things like this!
