Comfortable Girths (English) and Breast Collars For Trails
What kind of English style girths do you recommend for CTR and other long rides? I need something comfortable for the horse and will not cause rubs. I like the kind with the elastic on both ends and sheep skin. Something like this... Dover Saddlery | Tolkat Woolback Fleece Girth .
As far as breast collars, I have no idea. It just needs to be good quality, not too expensive, and comfortable. Gaudy color is just a bonus.
I have a few fleece-lined girths, and they held up well the first few years of their life and now they show the webbing through but are still comfortable for the horse. I found one I like, I think THIS is the one I have, never rubs and my horses seem comfortable in it.
Went to Horsetown today and bought the girth, along with a load of other stuff. I'm totally broke. I got the dressage version, since my AP saddle leans towards dressage with its excessively long flaps. I'm going to try it on my horse tomorrow to see how it works out.
