    My horse has a girth size of 50. I have a bunch of 50’s and recently he will not let me put any of them on. he puffs out so much and it’s just impossible. i thought maybe he gained weight so i tried a 52(not my own) and it worked. but it wasn’t the right size it’s big on him. it goes up 5 holes...

    I've been leasing a horse for about 6 months now and use the owners tack. She has a shoulder relief type girth which I'm not used to using but never thought twice about the way I was putting it on. The other day I went to the barn to ride and the owner was there riding her. When we were done...

    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!

    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...

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...
