Girth extender

One of the horses I ride is pasture kept so his weight varies from spring to fall.I bought some english tack(saddle,girth,bridle)for him in august but I don't know if the girth will still fit him in the spring.would girth a extender work until his weight came back down,or do I need to buy another girth?(we don't ride mutch in the winter because it is verry hilly and trails get icey with packed snow)

A girth extender would work fine if it is fitted correctly and made of quality material. (We cheated and used it on one of my old lease horses lol)

They work just fine. I use one on my mare sometimes, as she gets fat easily as well, and the kids saddles' billets are higher up on her sides than the adult saddles .

I have used a girth extender for a year on my big mare because I can't afford another girth! Haha
