Hi - I just switched to a felt girth because my horse was getting rubbed by neoprene. My horse loves the felt, but its driving me crazy...
It gets covered in burs, prickers, jaggers, and every other sticky weed thingee. I pick them off after each ride, but I feel like I'm tearing half the girth away.

LOL! I live in Manzanita country and boy do those puppies have sticky berries. That and the Bear Clover, Tar Weed and assorted grass seeds and stickers get my fleece girth covers really yucky so I'm picking off a lot of stuff too. The good news is that except for where the stitching is coming out (and the cover I left on my trailer fender as I pulled out from a ride), I still have and use my fleece covers after more than 10 years. Pretty? No :) But they are still serviceable.
