I would choose the last girth. The second one, (mohair) I would stay away from. They are easy on your horse in that they dont hold in heat, making your horse a little cooler, but they are all individual strands, and one can stretch out more then the next strand, making the pressure uneven on your horse, and you wouldnt have full contact of your girth on your horse..making your saddle more likely to slip. I use a smartcintch, and LOVE it! my saddle is stuck in place on my mare great. She too is very touchy, but doesnt mind it at all.
