[RC] girth galls - kate

Dear Peggy;
I think that galls often occur because the cinch is placed too close to the elbow and everytime the horse's leg goes back it hits it. If your cinch has a rough or hard edge, or is wide there, chafing occurs. Getting a cinch that is narrower through this area or softer, or both can solve this problem.
I get a lot of calls for my mohair cinches which are thicker in the center and then narrow toward the buckle ends. Katee Owens
