[RC] girth galls - Kathleen A. Crothers

I used to get some girth rubs and irritation with my short coupled big bellied 
arab no matter what saddle I used on him.  I mostly use a Bob Marshall sport 
saddle.  I switched to an x girth, (old OF girth) and it has two connected 
neoprene straps one that goes to the front girth ring and one to the back.  You 
can see it on the website for stablegear tack www.ciwtrailers.com  It works 
better than any girth I've used on him.  I still use desitine or A & D ointment 
on his elbows and girth area though.  I did a two day ride on him in hilly 
rough terrain last weekend and no girth rubs.  The girth also works on my thick 
withered horse to keep the saddle from slipping as bad.  Happy Trails, Kathy
