    Default Brown Dressage Girth?

    I just bought a new event saddle with long billets... I just bought a new 50" show girth this past summer for a short billet saddle So I can either spend $180 to get the billets replaced or find a brown short girth, I'm voting girth!

    Needs to be brown(I have a black one for my dressage saddle that will work for now) and either be fuzzy or find a cover in brown/natural, since my TB is sensitive to girth sores. I would like to spend less than new billeting, preferably under $100! I have yet to try a contoured girth to see if that works for the rubby area (right behind his elbow), but they tend to be pricier.

    Suggestions and places to buy? My current short one is a 26" and works fine, so no wonky/special sizes needed!

    I have a contoured dressage girth from Devoucoux in brown that matches my brown Dressage Saddle.

    www.advancedsaddlefit.com has gorgeous brown all-leather girths. They may not be up on the website yet, but they have them in stock.

    Worry is the biggest enemy of the present... it’s like using your imagination to create things you don’t want.

    In my experience, all the brown girths tend to be the $200 plus ones- a bit high for my budget. Bit O'Britain has one for $115 and it is contoured. You might search for a used one. Whitman makes a nice girth and there are some around.

    I gave up and just bought a Professional's Choice synthetic black one and covered it with a fleece cover. *shrug* I do have an old Whitman, but it's juuuuust a little too long (26") for my guy/my saddle. I'm hoping he grows into it! LOL

    I think the last time I was in the physical Netequestrian store, I saw a brown Mattes girth, so they must have it online. County makes the Logic girth in brown, and I believe Prestige does brown as well.

    M. Toulouse makes one - think Smartpak sells it. Under 100, if I recall correctly.
    Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

    Isn't this one of the reasons they make colored girth covers? Try a brown one.

    Nunn Finer makes one - http://www.bitofbritain.com/The_Pass...irth_p/377.htm

    $115 at Bit of Britain, and you might be able to find it for a bit less if you look around...

    ETA - I just realized SandyM made the same suggestion!
