I used the wintec elastic shaped girth back when I had a wintec 500. It was terrible - might a well have no elastic.

Dover makes a nice brown waffle weave girth with nice elastic for about $30 - can't remember exactly but mine was $20 on sale. It's so nice I bought it way after I sold my wintec and use it with my pessoa for schooling.

I would probably stick to the same brand and matching set as the wintec you already have :)

I personally like the girths that have elastic on both ends.
My current girth is fleece lined with elastic on both ends.
It doesn't really match my saddle, but I'm not showing so I don't care.

Good choice with the Wintec saddle!

I like fleece lined girths with elastic on both ends as well!
