Re[2]: [RC] HRM's and loose girths - Roger Rittenhouse

Truman  Correct--- We  only use girths with double elastic ends. I
modified all my saddles to use dressage girths.. Works great, solid
connections with allowed chest expansion.

TP> The reason for a "loose girth" is to allow the natural expansion of 
TP> chest as it moves down the trail. There is more than one way to "skin 
TP> that cat." Elastic between the girth buckles and the girth. Not just 
TP> elastic on one side as seen in many English girths but elastic on both 
TP> sides. That way you can ride with the girth snug enough for the HRM to 
TP> work but the elastic will allow for the natural expansion of the chest 
TP> the hrose needs to move freely.

TP> Thare are alot of options for this type of girth out there.
