very practical, quality girth
I have several Wintec girths (dressage and all purpose) and love them for their classic looks, ease of cleaning, comfort for the horse, a bit of elastic stretch (hidden), great quality buckles.

The only girth that would work for our huge draft
This is the only dressage style girth that was long enough to fit our huge Percheron/Belgian. I use it with a wintec saddle that is an all purpose with longer billets that are exposed to the horses side. Naturally since it's not a dressage saddle the billets aren't quite as long so I had are hard time finding the correct style girth for the saddle in a longer length. A regular girth was pinching her skin. This fit the bill and worked out perfectly.

Nice girth, size runs 2inches short
If in doubt, order 2" longer. Bought this to be my mare's 'fat' girth, 2 inches longer than her usual dressage girth's length, and it is almost exactly the same length (both are Wintec's chafeless dressage design; the older one is labeled as a chafeless dressage girth). Otherwise, am pleased to find a quality, easy-to-clean, every-day dressage girth in big-horse lengths. Have used several traditional girths for their length but the unprotected buckles (all-purpose or jumping) girths tend to catch/pull winter coat hairs sometimes, no matter how careful one tries to be while girthing, and the billet straps stick out awkwardly, having nowhere to be tucked.
