Okay currently I have my horse in a plain, cheap, Kincade Chafeless girth ($30Au)
But recently he has been showing signs of annoyance when I do up the girth, when previously he could'nt have cared less. Having spoken to a girl at my local tack store, I was informed that the kincade girths are no good (she did explain why, I just can't be bothered typing it).
SO.... I'm on the lookout for a new girth and need opinions.
I like the Wintec:
Wintec Pro Chafeless Dressage Girth
For it's shape and the fact that it's elastic right through, instead of at the ends (which, I am told by the girl at the tack store, spreads the pressure more evenly instead of focusing it all in the centre on their sternum, which is the effect the elastic ends give (correct? I'm just going by what I was told).
I've also seen these:
Equinenz Wool Lined Elasticated Long Girth *NEW* - eBay Saddle Parts, Accessories, Equipment, Horse Riding, Sport. (end time 28-Feb-09 08:41:02 AEDST)
But i'm unsure about them for the reasons I stated above.
So any info on the above girths, or advice as to better ones would be muchly apreciated!!! Thanks!
