    The M. Toulouse shaped leather girth is $120. It comes in a sheepskin model for $20 more.

    I have one I don't need and would like to see go free to a good home. One other COTHer has first dibs on it, but if she doesn't need it you're welcome to it.
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    I love the shaped hunter girth I just got from Smartpak. I believe it was about $170. It runs really long and stretches a bit, so you are probably ok with 56". I like a 54" girth. I ordered a 54" which I am now dedicating to my larger horse, and have ordered another in 52".

    I got a 58" Classic Equine (I think that was the brand...from HorseLife in Alberta) that didn't look like the elastic stretched a ton, and I didn't use it much but it measures more like a 61". I got a County Logic for my guy and it's a very nice girth. I looked at the M. Toulouse but couldn't find any in Canada, and County had a dark brown 58" in stock they got to me in 3 days.

    VTO Saddlery has some Prestige girths in the clearance section, but I can't remember if they are double elastic or not...I think they have 57" and 59"?

    Tackzone has some Bobby's girths that are $99. Mine is on the way. The boy i ordered it for recently put on A LOT of weight, so I think I'll have to reorder in a 52". Oh well.

    I got a 58" Stubben dark brown leather girth for $150-ish.. absolutely love it. It's held up for over 3 years and still looks beautiful!

    I don't think the Bobby's come in a 58".

    Treadstone Chafeless Double Elastic girth is about $80 and comes in a 58. I have the 56 and really like it. The leather is smooth and soft and it cleans up well after every ride.

    Here's a link to the girth at Horseman's Outlet. I shop there all the time and they are friendly, helpful, and have a good selection.

    I have one horse that wears a 54, one that wears a 58 and one wears a 60.

    You can find the 58 but it's not easy. And the 60 are really difficult to find. What I did was buy the girth of my choice in the largest size I could get and take it to a local tack repair place and they removed the buckles (leather) and made extensions to get the length I want. It was about 15.00 You can have the elastic extended but it was cheaper to just extend the leather stitched piece.

    Try taking the largest girth you have and adding longer elastic to both ends to make the girth the correct length.
