How do you know what size girth to buy for a horse? Just a regular jumping girth
A general rule of thumb is if the girth reaches down to the horses fetlock while it’s on the first hole it should fit the horse. You might also want to borrow other girth’s in a variety of sizes to see which works best. Hoped this helped! :)
For me how i buy my horse a girth is: my horse came with a birth that fit him and I usually put the girth on my shoulder so when I buy girth’s I can test the, out on my shoulder
You can beat her from the lower quarter of the wholes from one side, all the way back around to the other side and how long that is should be ur girth size
