  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Ahoy! I've seen a TON of opinions on cinching, ranging from snug to loose etc. As far as I know, the general rule is to tighten enough for it to not slip when mounting. "Don't cut your horse in half!" I am still "learning" aka, I can easily walk, trot, but after recently getting bucked off...

    Hay y'all! Alright, so I know you've heard probably a million times that a girthy horse "isn't my fault" but in this case, I know it is! Ive got a 13 year old Quarter horse, paint gelding who is just the most sweet, precious boy. He tolerates just about anything and spooks at nothing. However...

    Quick question, which side do you first stand on (from the horses view) when taking off the girth? I know you start on the right side when putting it on but not sure the right way for untacking, please help!

    I have had my mare since August 1 of last year. After about 6 weeks during a very hot part of the summer, I noticed that she was starting to lose hair on both sides under the girth after I removed it. The area was almost on her belly, about a quarter sized area on each side. Not bleeding or raw...

    I have a 15.1HH Draft cross and was sizing her for a girth to go with my saddle. If I buckle the girth in the very top billet holes on the saddle (it's a 7 billet saddle.) I would need a 36in girth. If i did it in the very bottom billets it would be 29in. So what size should I get?

    What do you prefer your girth to be made out of, and why? I was looking into buying a Professional Choice girth, but I've heard so many people say that you shouldn't put neoprene on your horse. I'm not sure why. I currently use a fleece girth. I don't like how bulky it is, and I worry that I'm...

    I am looking for some new tack but am not sure how to measure the current sizes I have. For stirrup leathers, are they measured from buckle to the very end, buckle to the first hole, etc.? For girths, are they measured just buckle to buckle? For bit, is it ring to ring when laying flat, or...

    I have an absolutely wonderful, barely used anatomical girth that was custom made for a horse I no longer have. It was made by DK Saddlery of Alberta, Canada. Not well known in the U.S., but they make incredible tack -- saddles starting at $5,000 and go up from there. This girth cost $300, but I...

    Hi All! I'm currently girth shopping and cannot choose between two :-P One is Neoprene against the belly and one is fleece. Which is more comfortable for the horse? Is there another material that is more comfortable than these two options? Thanks ahead of time for your input! :-)
