    Default dressage girth with a ring?

    I am probably searching for a needle in a haystack... but I was wondering if anyone has seen a dressage girth with a ring on it (to which I can attach the clip of a breastplate). I know breastplates are not terribly common in dressage and I am having trouble finding a girth with a ring on it. Yes, I can the girth through the end of the breastplate - but I would really prefer to get a girth with a ring to use with a particular breastplate I love that has a clip on the end (and not a loop).

    Has anyone seen something like this? If not, do they make any sort of girth attachments for this purpose? (Sorry if these are silly questions!)

    Thanks!

    My Schleese has a ring! I love it, I put a clip on my vienna reins and it made them 300 x more convenient.

    You mean like a D ring in the center of the girth..where the sternum is supported? If so, I know Schleese has those..

    Awesome! Thanks so much! I just had no idea what one might be called.

    There are little things that you can slip the girth through that have a ring on them. Called a detachable girth ring and a might cheaper than a new girth. http://www.doversaddlery.com/product...&ids=635034054

    You guys are the best! Thank you so much. Once I know what search terms to use, I was able to find a black girth loop for $8 on Ebay! I just sent my PayPal payment!

    That was a heck of a lot cheaper than a new girth.

    Prestige has one. Or use a cat collar around your girth. The ring for the tag is perfect for attaching to.

    The Prestige contoured dressage girth has a ring.
