    Default Leather Girth vs. Fleece Girth

    I usually use a fleece girth for flatting and a leather girth for jumping/showing. What do you use?

    Leather for everything usually, I add a girth sock if the horse is extra sensitive. A good quality leather that is soft, supple and of course clean is as comfortable as fleece. Occasionally I have used neoprene and if the horse is very thin skinned then sheepskin, not fleece.
