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.....
