Mattes Short Athletico Girth W/ Detachable Cover is rated

Beware. This is a lovely girth - that stains.
This is a lovely girth that my mare seems comfortable in, but unfortunately, even after two washes, the sheepskin cover is staining my horse blackish purple after use. I called SmartPak customer service and they let me know that this is a known issue with sheepskin cover girths and suggested I wash the cover again and look into some sort of wash that might help the girth be more colorfast. I’m quite disappointed as this was an expensive purchase for me and I never would’ve dreamed that the dye would leach out onto my horse with normal use.
Hopefully washing the girth several more times will help.
