    Default Where to find fleece girth with BROWN fleece?

    I know this exists, because I own one...but I need to find one in another size. Mine is Toklat, but any decent quality brand will do. I can't find anything other than brown nylon with white or natural fleece. Help?

    Not looking for a leather girth with fleece lining, want the nylon kind.

    Try Mattes. Almost all of their products are able to be customised. I have a brown nylon double ended girth with natural fleece because I wanted that colour combination, however I have their half pads and full pads in custom colour combinations. I have seen some of their other products in custom colour combinations, so I'm sure the girth can be made in your choice of colours.

    I just happen to look at the Mattes catalog. The girths are available in every colour combination.

    Are these fleece or sheepskin? There is a big difference between the two (I'm too lazy to look at the catalog), both in price and material. The OP asked for fleece and Mattes is usually sheepskin.

    Anyway I have a brown nylon with brown fleece, I got it at Dover, although it was several years ago.

    If you can't find one,
    Buy the $20ish white girth and use 3 packages of Rit dye (pre-disolved before adding girth) in very hot water. Stir. Rinse many times. I used to do that with the white mohair girths.
