I like the fleece lined girths, the stay cooler, seem to be more comfortable, but show dirt a lot more.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

I don't think the wool looks thick enough to aid in cooling but, since it is a natural product, it may help prevent the skin irritation that some nylons or other synthetics can produce.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Eh, I am not a huge fan of the "fleece-built-in" kind of girths. Just kind of a pita to keep clean...I prefer to buy a fleece girth-cover that I can just toss in the wash with my clothes and can swap between girths when I need to. Plus, cheaper to replace. I guess its a personal preference though

I like those girths, because my TB is very girthy and goes well with the fleece girth cover I own.

I use a fleece girth cover, but the only pain in the patooie about it - is that it does not stay in place and bulks or wrinkles up, causing pinching.

I want one of those fleece built in girths myself, but they don't make them in back *not the fleece, but the girth itself* and I ride in only black tack.

You can find them much cheaper than that, there are people who sell them used quite often. Keep looking.

Ah, I haven't had any problems with bunching or shifting, I but I don't event either! That's good to know. For w/t/c flatwork, haven't had an issue.
