I am wondering what is a good girth for English riding, good prices, and size that I can adjust for multi. horses as I will not have enough money left over to buy more than one.

I use Pro-Choice on my dressage saddle and CC saddle. Pro Choice SMX Dressage Girth < Synthetic Girths < Dressage Girths|Dover Saddlery .

Thanks for the opinion, if I get the horse I like which is 650 I'll need something to fit to my 14.3(he's around there) 2yr old trotter, and this boy I'm looking at is nearly 16hh TB, but if I like the other it would be closer to 17hh I believe. I am looking at saddles as well so I'm trying to find a good price range as I only have so much I'll be able to spend, counting the cost of hay for winter. So x-x i'm trying find a girth size that I can adjust but is also affordable. <-- not so bright person looking to learn dressage and hunter jump

Why not get an adjustable girth? This one ( Adjustable English Girth With Neoprene Girths and Accessories Tack English ) seems very affordable, and suitable to your needs. will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ... Explore. Dream. Discover.”

The adjustable girth is really neat, I've never seen anything like that before. Another idea would be to get girth extenders, Im on my phone so I can't bring up a link but they are petty common and inexpensive I believe.

Check out Smartpak's girths. Good price, and nice fluffy fleece that's easy to clean and comfortable on the horse. Stick with double elastics no matter what you choose. Wider range of adjustment, as well as nicer to the horses back.
