Or a really small saddle! My QH isn't *that* chunky, I swear! I have to use a 56 girth for my kiddo's AP saddle, took me forever to find one.

Exactly! My 14yr old daughter just started riding English and the girth for her saddle is 54" but he saddle is a 15" English saddle. Makes her horse look even bigger when she is so tiny. My daughter is just 5' and 80lbs. So that is all the bigger seat she can handle

My paint loves, loves, loves blankets! Her turnout and the fleece I put in trailer if it's cold when I'm getting back from trail. She's all getting excited seeing one and give her bum to put it on. QH equally hates them....

Gidget, it's very hard to pick a right length girth. My A/P 48, my dressage is 24. Never know - depends on saddle. I hope yours will fit just right!

JJ's okay with his blanket and sheet, but that's because he's a thin skinned TB. Casper kills blankets, and Mack just absolutely will not tolerate one.

Heck, at night JJ would MUCH prefer to be in a stall than outside with the Arabians. When I go out to feed in the morning he's always in one of the stalls, while the Arabs are out in the field somewhere.

I never thought I'd own another 'house horse'. Conny was a house horse, too. If so much as ONE DROP of rain water touched his precious, special hide, he'd stand at the gate and scream for me to bring him in. JJ is apparently following in my dainty little diva's hoofprints!

Yep, different saddles may require different girths. Which is why I suggested that Gidget measure the horse for a girth with the saddle she was going to use.

Gidget loves blankets too! She doesn't get really fuzzy during the winter so I began to blanket her once
