    Default Brown Short Griths with D-Rings

    Do they just not exist? I haven't been able to find one yet. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I say short because I am looking at both Dressage Girths and Monoflap girths ( that don't cost an arm and a leg).

    But the hardest thing is trying to find one with a d-ring so I can clip my breastplate.

    Have you seen the little leather loops with the D on them? I'm not sure what they're called exactly, or if they have a name, but it's just a leather loop that you slide over your girth so you've got a D ring. That doesn't find a girth for you, but it might help with the D ring problem
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    You can order a fleece one from Toklat with D rings. Takes about two weeks.

    My brown County Logic short girth has a D-ring. Of course, I think those might be pricey new (bought my on consignment).

    Nunn Finer has a nice one but it doesn't have D rings. It is on my list of "to buys." You can also have the d rings put on, and I bet it's not that expensive. Then you can put them exactly where you want them.

    Delfina Saddlery on Ebay makes one with a center D-ring, for about $75. They're listed at around $100, butI offered $75 and it was accepted. The quality isn't bad (not as nicely padded as the Nunn Finer ones), but it was fine for what I needed. They're also contoured, like the County Logic ones.

    I have the SJ girth from Wise and like it. It isn't cheap though.....

    I really want the Nunn Finer. Most of my equipment already is Nunn Finner and I love it! But which one is the better girth or yet what is the difference between, is it their passage(?) and piaffe girths?

    Contact these people: http://www.bakerssaddlery.com/contact/

    They will ship to the US and they are custom made but inexpensive. Mine is beautiful, padded, shaped and has a dee.

    Only the Passage comes in brown. The other one is awesome and I have it for my dressage saddle. I am going to get the Passage soon to replace my very frayed brown short girth.

    I swear, I will buy NO MORE tack after this purchase.

    There is a Devoucoux on ebay. Looks pretty worn though.

    Will Nunn Finer add the D Rings or do you mean you can have them put on seperately once you buy the girth? The passage girth is beautiful but I too want the D Ring
