    Default What size girth for a mini?

    I am wondering about what size dressage girth a mini pony would use. We have a 10 hand pony and just ordered a leadline saddle that uses a dressage girth. Does anyone even make them small enough?

    You likely will have not much trouble. Leadline saddles have very short flaps and the billets are quite high on the pony's belly. Plus, it likely has a nice round belly
    I actually ended up using a 22" or 24" girth on my daughter's 11h 2" pony with a leadline saddle. I did purchase an 18" one specially for the purpose, but it turns out I do not need it. I think I have a 14-16" one somewhere around as well.

    Just see what you need when your saddle arrives.

    Let me know if you want to get rid of your shorter ones.
