More and more tack — 2 Comments

  1. Hi! I just found your blog and am catching up.

    Tip for dressage girths without dee rings (I, too, refuse to spend 3x the money on a girth just because it has an attached dee ring; plus I have a nice fleecy one that won't chafe that I absolutely love, and it has no ring): get a girth loop.

    Here's a biothane one by Zilco: http://www.equestriancollections.com/product.asp?ic=TO00069R&utm_medium=Channel&utm_source=GoogleShopping&utm_campaign=TO00069R&gclid=CODyrqzIk7kCFZOk4Aod9CUAGQ

    But you can find them super cheap at most tack shops online (except Smartpak, they don't carry any) and on eBay. Even the leather ones are usually less than $10.

  2. Funny thing about that.. I bought a nylon girth loop at Horse Expo this year. I'm hoping there's a size difference, because it adds 2-3 inches to the length of the breastplate, and that's length I can't subtract from the breastplate side.

    But I think you're right, and I think I need to buy one even if she does fix it, because heaven forbid the stupid thing breaks again halfway through something with worse hills. One tack order, coming right up!

    Also: welcome, and hooray!
