Adjustable girth
 
I saw these and thought it was a cool idea. This would eliminate the need to buy different girths for different horses. Has anyone had one? Do they work as advertised.

I've not seen one of these before, but there's a review at Collegiate Adjustable Girth @ Horse Tack Review.

Let us all know how you get on with it if you decide to buy one!

The review was helpful, thanks. I think the one I was looking at was not the same brand, but I think I am going to go ahead and buy it. Even if it will be a bit before I have a chance to use it.

I got one (english) for my draft cross colt as he was growing so fast and I thought the same as you, that I could use it on multiple horses. I can't remember the brand name but the problem I had with it was the adjustable outer part would slip off the under padding right under his stomach behind his front legs and then pinch him in between the two...... I never could figure out how to stop this and would have to get off several times during my ride (which is an effort when you are riding at 17.3, 4 yr. old colt!) and get everything back in place. I tried using my breast collar strap to hold the two pieces in place but it didn't work. So, I ended up getting rid of it and going with a regular fleece girth.

Green River Tack looks familiar and I looked at the picture and it looks just like the one I had. The outer part with the buckle slides off the under padding........
