    Default Short brown girths?

    Hi all!

    Can anyone recommend a good short broth girth (for long billeted saddle) that would be suitable for a girthy, sensitive mare? I was looking at the Nunn Finer Passage girth....any experience with this one?

    Thanks!

    LOVE the Nunn Finer passage too, so nicely padded

    I just bought the Passage but only got to use it once before I broke my arm. It's lovely and almost TOO padded, but gelding sure liked it. I'm sure when I'm back in the tack that I'll love it too.
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

    Another huge thumbs up...loved by brown/jump one so much I just got a black one for my dressage saddle :-) And, I have a girthy mare, too.

    I have the Piaffe ("sister girth") in black for my dressage saddle, and my fussy, sensitive Arab gives it a thumbs up!

    The Passage has elastic, the Piaffe buckles slide to equalize billet pressure. They both have the same shape and padding. The Piaffe only comes in black though.

    I love the Nunn Finer girths. I had the Toulouse short girth and I was not a huge fan. It was alright, but not exactly what I would expect at that price.
    I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.
