Re: Cruppers -Which to buy?
Sally, The Australian crupper is very good leather. It's made smooth like a
baby's skin, and triple folded, and bent to fit smooth under the tail, nice
and flat. It has a buckle close to the tail for ease of putting on, and the
adjuster strap comes out from the crupper bar. The round ones (except
OrthoFlex) are often wrinkled and rough, and stuffed with flaxseed. OF is a
good one. Both are $65. I don't do OF anymore, but I do Australian. I've
had many years experience in the mountains and only had a slight chaff one
time, from the extreme hours of downhill with a load on the back. Possibly
the dirt, or the load tightening too much. The key is clean clean clean.
