"Expensive" mohair girths around these parts go for between $15 and $20,
far cheaper than the girths of other material (i.e. leather) that I buy.
I have never priced neoprene ones, but are they really cheaper than $15 or
are other people paying more for mohair than I am?

I must confess to total confusion on this. I find mohair perfectly ideal
for a number of reasons:

It holds the saddle in place well.
It is very easy to clean and care for (just throw it in the washing
mmachine or hose it off).
You can easily die it any color you want (if you want it to match your
horse...which is what is expected in the hunter/jumper and dressage rings)


They are dirt cheap, as far as I am concerned.

It would never occur to me to describe a $15 girth as expensive. What is
the cost of a neoprene one?
