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

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.

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

Its a good girth, but I wouldnt pay that price for it, epspecially because of its upkeep

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.
