Subject: RC: sore girth
First, I ride in an OF Express Lite with a Toklat dressage
girth on Arabs.
At the first day of the Bryce XP my chestnut gelding
got very sore in the
girth area after the ride (50 miles). I thougt
that perhaps I had him
cinched too tight and the third day switched to a
neoprene dressage girth
rode with loose girth and had no problems.
Well, I just did the LD ride
on a young horse at the Man Against
Horse. It is a fairly difficult ride
with significant mountain
trails. Weather was good, not hot or cold at
both rides. I rode
with the OF, Toklat girth again, and again my horse
was very sore after the
ride in the girth area. There was some hair gone
but a lot of heat
and tenderness which made him walk short because he did
not want to move
his front legs. I wash my girth after every ride with
water, no soap or chemicals. Why is this girth causing
soreness? I just can not see any way that there is anything that
cause rubbing or chaffing, so is it heat build up, saddle sitting to
forward, or what? Thanks for any comments or
