Question Would this look alright?

I am thinking about getting a new girth. Mine is really old and stretched out. So i saw this girth on Horse.com...

Pro-Craft™ Air Formed Girth
This shaped girth is made from lightweight material with an air formed waffle weave. Double strength elastic with roller buckles at both ends.

The only problem is that it comes in black. So i was wondering if this girth would look alright with my saddle. Here is a picture of my saddle.


I have a white horse. What do you think?

I don't see why not. Your saddle is a very dark brown so there won't be that big of a difference. I use a black cinch on my brown saddle (I ride western though, I don't know if that matters).

It looks fine to me. Your saddle is dark enough to mesh with the black.

I'm not a fan of mixing colors or mixing materials but that might just be me. Is there a particular reason that you like this girth over others?

I like the fact that it has double elastic at both ends. The price is good for me.
I found the same girth..different brand,..in brown..would this one look better than the black one? I found it on dover.

I have similar girth (although little more expensive and it came in brown color :) ) and like it. Your saddle looks pretty dark on picture, so I don't see any problem with matching personally.

I think either girth would be fine with your saddle.
