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!
I saw an anatomic brown girth on ebay for about 90 bucks. I don't remember the brand name, but it looked nice. love the anatomic girths! There was a store that carries them on ebay. just search for anatomic brown dressage girth. good luck!
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.
Love means attention, which means looking after the things we love. We call this stable management.

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.
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.
