Re: [RC] Neoprene Girth - Drin Becker

>I have had the opposite experience.  I had problems with mohair, switched to fleese which was better, and changed to neoprene when it bacame available.  I have had no problem with girth sores since (except for a professionals choice that had a foam rubber lining ).
Neoprene seems to be an all-or-nothing thing.  Many horses get by just fine with it, but those who don't will scald, period, sometimes even with very minimal riding and a reasonably loose girth.  (I have one of those scalders--and he does just fine in fleece.)
Thanks Ed and Heidi for the input , sounds like the Toklat fleece girth is the way to go for me with this mare . As I know that a tight cinch is not the problem .
