Looking for good girths!

Hey all! :) I'm on the hunt for a good quality leather girth. I need it to be 44-46" long, with elastics on both ends - any with elastics on just one end are not an option. No fleece either...too slippery for my round little guy! I'm on a bit of a budget - would like to stay under the $100 mark, shipping inc. I tried a 44" Chetak wide belly girth and I really loved the quality of it, but it ended up being too short for my dude - who likes to puff himself up when it's time for the girth to go on! If I can't find anything else, I'll be buying one of those in a larger size, but I wanted to know if you guys had any experience with some good ones that you would recommend. :) Thank you all in advance!

Sion, I assume you talk about English one, right? Just curious why not neoprene but leather? I find leather to be more slippery when they sweat (but it's just me of course).

Yes, English. :) I prefer the look of leather girths, especially for any shows or anything around here. My coach recommended that I buy a leather one for that reason.

I've heard nice words about Ovation (Ovation™ Softy Comfort Girth | Dover Saddlery), BUT I never tried it myself (I use non-slip Pro Choice on mine).

Tory Leather girths are amazing quality for the price. Leather on these felt better than most of the more expensive girths I looked at when we were at congress last year.

TORY LEATHER Contour English Girth with Elastic - has them for $68 pretty good deal.

Kitten_Val, I need it to have elastic on both ends. Thanks for the suggestion though. :)

Ink, I like the look of that one! I'll keep that in mind for sure.

I prefer leather and require elastic at both ends, too. Some polo shops (Tackeria, Polo Gear) carry them. All TB racing shops carry them. I like the ones I can get from the shop across from Churchill Downs. They are really well made and use great leather. I picked a couple up last fall and visited last week. I try to find the name, if you're interested.

It's Luckett's on 4th.

I have an Edgewood, which I love, the stitching, etc is beautiful on it, you can tell it is a well made product!

I also have a very old Whitman, which is so very old and worn in that it's the only girth I can use on my sensitive-skinned girl. My only complaint is that my breast girth leaves little notches in it where it I loop it around my girth :(

If I had the money for an Edgewood girth I'd be all over it! Unfortunately I'm on a high school student's budget - paying for this on my own.

Bumping to see if anyone else has anything to offer! :)
