    Question Looking for a short brown girth

    I've tried VTO, Smartpak etc. I need a dressage girth in brown for a monoflap. I would like it under 100.00. Any suggestions?

    I have now after much searching found 3 under 100.00. I'm going to wait until I can see them in person to decide.

    I'm still open for suggestions or comments on any short girths in brown.

    I just went through this. M. Toulouse has one for like $98-99. Smartpak carries it. VTO carries one...I think it is a Nunn Finer and it is listed as a dressage girth, but it does come in brown (I believe it is the "Passage" girth). I ended up buying a County Logic on consignment from my local tack shop...good deal.

    I have a few of these synthetic dark brown, short girths. I love them. They don't rub my horse, and I can throw them in the washer. I get them from this website/seller: http://cgi.ebay.com/THOROWGOOD-DRESS...item6672bf8071
    Best part is with shipping, it comes to about $40!

    Here is one that seems nice (I like having the ring to clip a breastplate to): http://www.hilason.com/products/9398...h+HSPA265.aspx

    They are often on ebay for a bit less than that.

    These surprisingly are in the general price range: http://mattesequestrian.com/shop.asp?pid=384

    The Nunn Finer Piaffe/Passage girth comes in brown, and it's absolutely gorgeous leather. You have to buy it from Bit of Britain, though.

    This is what I have and love it, very nice girth, has held up really well to a lot of hard riding/work and is still soft and lovely. I bought it from Somerset Saddlery, so you can get it from other sources then BoB, if they carry Nunn Finer products.

    Ditto on the Wintecs. I have several. They hold up, are zero maintenance, and the ponies love them. And yes, CHEAP.

    Ok, resurrecting this thread b/c I have a monoflap arriving today, and if it works (ohpleaseohplease), I'll need a brown girth to go with it. Until then, hello black dressage girth - bet you're glad to be doing double duty!

    So I found a place on ebay that sells the brown wintecs and the thorogood ones (though the T ones are intnl vendors).

    Anyone else know of other vendors/sellers of sythetic neoprene or airflow type short brown girths? Links? My googling has turned up nil.

    Between the *nearly* always hot weather here in TX and my mare's sensitive proclivities, a soft sythetic is what I'm looking for in this case. Not cotton-y, nylon web or fleece - the kind I can hose off after each ride.

    If Classic Equine would make their soft touch dressage girth in brown, I could die happy.

    Bit of Britain has short brown wintec synthetic girths in brown. That's where I ended up ordering by girth for my chiberta. I love that I can just hose it off in the summer.

    I've ordered the Thorogood ones from the seller in the UK (see my post above). It still comes to only about $45 with shipping. I love these girths. They are contoured (unlike the Wintecs) and wash beautifully. Only downside is it takes about 3 weeks with shipping.

    Does the Throwgood one have a pocket for the billets or just the loops?

    It has pockets so you can tuck the billets out of the way. I have this girth in an 18", 22" and 24"!
