    Default Very Short short girth needed for monoflap

    So I just bought my first real eventing saddle (a Velocity by Borne Saddlery). I am riding a mare who is 14.3 and not very large in the girth. I have a black girth that fits her dressage saddle (18") but I would love a brown leather girth, with or without a belly guard for her. I didn't see any out there in the 16 to 18" range, even on Just for Ponies.

    Ideas?

    Delfina has an anatomical one in brown. 18" is their smallest size.

    If you can go to 20", Nunn Finer has a few options.

    If it doesn't have to be brown leather, you can get mohair in any length you want - Moss Rock has a really nice one. http://www.mossrockendurance.com/vie...=9&prod_ID=353

    They have SEVERAL at 14" at Just For Ponies, though they are black. I have the

    Wintec makes girths that small.

    I love my wintec girth!! It's easy to clean, doesn't rub, and is just easy

    Ovation airform chafeless dressage girths come in an 18, and Delfina makes an 18 as well but they come in black.

    No cheap, but nice quality. Smallest is a 16in.

    I think I need a 16 and prefer brown. I own a black 18" and it is just a tad big. Thanks!

    I got a 20" in the Ovation, they're affordable and durable. Not sure how small they go. I'm pretty sure there are smaller ones on Just for Ponies too!
