Hi Lisa P -
I haven't found my neo girths to cause
any soreness on my horses, but I also use different girths on them. The best
combination I have is so far is a double elastic neo girth, covered w/ a
Toklat woolback sleeve. I also like pure mohair, and rigged up a double
elastic mohair girth, which I sometimes use w/ a woolback sleeve.
You could also try cutting a strip off
one of those "vent" pads and lining your girth with that. Keeps the girth
from direct contact w/ the horse. Maybe this will help. I've done this on
both a neo and a mohair, I made a sleeve that velcroes on, but I have to
"fine tune" it.
I think saddle fit and placement, and
tack cleanliness have more to do with girth sores than anything else. Unless
it is a conformation issue.
Just keep your tack clean, and rotate out different
ones, keeps the same pressure off the same place.
Hope This Helps : )
