Leather girths?

I am looking for a new girth for my DW and I'm wondering if I should fork out for a leather girth. At the moment we use a cotton web girth with no major issues.

They are nice for shows, but I just use a Wintec synthetic girth. They woek great for me, and arn't very expensive

Leather wears better, I find. They create a cleaner appearance as well, if you're looking to show.

For everyday schooling, I just use a synthetic girth with fleece underside. But some people really love string girths. I really only like to use leather if I am showing.

Sweet. I'll get one for show and I have always liked the Wintec girths for every day. Thanks everyone.
