Yay for going on Horse Forum when I'm supposed to be

In English class. I have nothing better to do.

I was wondering though... What are people's opinions about Mohair girths? I want to get one, but do they stretch or anything like that?

Thanks guys, for curing my bordem.

Bad girl for missing (or not paying attention in English) but at least your grammar and sentence structure is good.

100% Mohair ... yes (not a blend) it does stretch but only for the first few times you use it. As for the purpose, it is one of the best materials that I've used and will continue to use it. I've used the Professional's Choice and other neoprene girths for years before going to mohair. I find that the mohair breaths and I prefer natural materials against my horse, although I don't like the cotton girths. The one I use is the Weaver Smart Cinch due to the buckle system. I use the roper style - a little more expensive then others but since they last for at least a few years, it averages out.

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.

Go back to English! I have never used one of those girths, so I wouldn't know. But from what I have heard that the 100% (not blended as iridehorses said) do stretch for the first few goes of use. But after that you should be alright.

Overal I've heard they are a good girth and I haven't heard a complaint about them yet. But I will let you know if I do :P

Sir Success. Eventer.

Well, this one from Dover is the one I bought: Ovation Mohair Girth - Dover Saddlery.

It just seems like it'd be a lot more comfortable for him than the girth I am using now (nylon with neoprene lining). He just gets so sweaty and all that. =/

And cut me a break, guys. I finished my essay, so I had nothing to do.
