    I second Taylored Tack, and also like Hought. Both will do custom sizing at no additional charge.

    PS - I don't recommend sizing up unless you're really between sizes. As the owner of a (maybe) 14hh Arab who wears an 18", I speak from personal experience, and a lot of wasted money on girths that...

    Appsolute - Renegades have a cut-back option, where they'll take off the extra length to better fit a round hoof. You really can't tighten down the extra length.
