Hey just bought a wintec all purpose saddle 250 and my question is I can get any english girth? This is the one I want! Will that work for my Wintec saddle? Also how do you know what size girth to get where do you measure?

The english girth that you chose should work. For size well what I did was take a guess... I have never measured for a girth it was more just take a guess and try it on... but then again I was not buying off the internet..

What breed is your horse? how tall is he..
for example my horse is about 16 2 and 1100-1200 pounds and he wears a 50'
maybe a picture of your horse could help everyone take a guess

You meassure from one billet(around the third hole) to the other. Also, I would recomend shopping from Dover, their prices are lower!

Looking at her..(she is super cute) I would say a 48' or 50' she looks around the size girth wise as my horse and a 50' fits great on him.. It should work for her. Just to be sure check to see about there return polacy(sp?) just in case you need to get a different size. Anyway after me blabbing away I think a 50' should work for her. :)

I don't see why it wouldn't fit. I have a Wintec and i bought a Wintec Elastic girth to go with it but i haaaated it. It was stiff and pinchy and it made the saddle slip. So i use 2 non-Wintec brand girths and they both work excellently.

I don't particularly care for Wintec girths either. But you can use any girth on a Wintec saddle. I would try Ebay before Dover. Yes, dover is cheaper than other places, but Ebay is my first-and-foremost go-to place. Also try www.tackoftheday.com they usually have some great deals!

Is that a dressage saddle? It looks like it to me but maybe I am confused ... if it is then you would need a shorter girth.

Because it's the love child of a dressage saddle and a jumping saddle. :)

haha well put Stormy. An all purpose saddle is designed to have the forward seat of a jumping saddle so you can get out of it when jumping, but have a deeper seat and longer billets and stuff like that :D

To measure for a girth, the saddle with a pad should be placed on the horse. A measuring tape is then used to measure from the middle hole of the billet on one side, under the horse's belly, to the middle billet on the other side.
