Girth Sores, HELP!!

Posted on May 4, 2009 at 6:23am 2 Comments

Does anyone have advice on how to prevent or minimize girth sores? I'm using a mohair girth on my mare, with LOTS of baby powder. I stretch her legs after I tack her up, so her skin is smooth under the girth. I've tried tightening the girth, or riding with it loose. Seems to make NO difference, I ride over an hour and she comes home with rubs behind her elbow. One side does seem to be worse than the other.... Does anyone have any advice?? Thanks in advance.....

Welcome to endurance riders, Amber. You live in a very cold climate. Please share, with all of us, how you stay warm, precautions you take to insure your horses are acclimated well to the region, etc!

Hello, My family has a decent amount of farm land and woods (in Dodge County) so I just go riding around home. I'm working on making some trails through the woods. I would like to ride some of the state trails.
