girth size

I'm in need of a new dressage girth but I'm short on time. I need to get one by Saturday but the only problem is that the only tack shop in my area that has any english tack only carries one type of dressage girth and they don't have the size I think I need.

This girth will be used on a horse that I've never ridden before and her owner isn't familiar with dressage sizes. She told me she takes a 48" english girth and I was told to subtract 20" from that to get the dressage size which would be a 28.

The people at the shop told me that I can return it no questions asked so I'm considering just buying one and hope that it fits and return it if it doesn't and then just order one in time for my next lesson.

Soooo my actual question is this; would you recommend going one size up and getting a 30 or one size down and getting a 26?

Not sure how correct this chart its, but it gives you an idea.

I would ask a person at the tack shop what they think the right size would be. And if you're unsure, you could get a few sizes and return the ones that didn't fit

I'd say go down a size. That was if it's to small you can just add an extender. But if it's to big there isn't anything you can do about it.
