I highly recommend this girth. They hold up to ANYTHING and are super easy to clean. They also hold their value pretty well. I would recommend a 50" and a girth extender for more horses.

I don't think I would go that route.. it looks like an itty bitty strap keeping the girth on... yikes.

It's better just to spend the money on a good english girth. Smart pack has one for $35, with amazing reviews. Dover has one just under $30.

I have this one. It's never made a horse sore and has held up really well.

Nothing wrong with the mohair corded girths either. Yep, they're old-school, but horses like them.

Link above doesn't work. Don't know why. Luckily I know tack sooo much better than computers.

I'll measure either my current lease (that she won't sell to me :/ ) or Copper's appendix and average something around there for the girth then. Hopefully it works, if not I'll buy bigger/smaller if necessary.

I put the 54" leathers in my cart to save, so I'll go ahead with them then. (:

Thanks, sorted out today's problem..lol.

Poor thing is going to start worrying about her weight when we start measuring

Redneck version of half chaps - wrap your lower leg with a polo, not ideal but will stop your legs from being rubbed raw by the leathers in a pinch (no pun intended).
Lonestar22 and Copperhead like this.

Haha, I've used vet wrap for it before! Normally a pair of tall, tight fitting socks does the job for me. I only ride in jeans and cowboy boots because I don't show and got my english saddle for really cheap. I just use it to mess around in, ride on the beach and jump on occasion. I just can't justify spending $100+ on breeches, boots and half chaps for just messing around in.

I DO plan on buying them, but only if they're a really good deal. And I haven't found any yet.

Ovation™ Mohair Girth | Dover Saddlery string girth might not be bad. 48"-50" is what my tack shop sells a lot of to people with QH and Paint, up to 52" or so for a large one.
Ovation Mohair String Girth English Saddle Fittings/Pads Reviews @ Horse Tack Review

Stirrup leathers: I think you should go 58" or even 60" considering your height and you'll be doing flatwork in an AP, not jumping in a close contact saddle. The $40 wrapped leathers from sstack.com didn't seem bad when I looked at them last year. National Bridle Shop used to sell their shop-made leathers for $20-$25 but they are typical hide leathers, not the calfskin covered kind.
