I’m looking for a sheepskin cover for my Prolite girth (It’s a narrow gauge one). I see LeMieux do a one for the Fairfax ones but say they don’t fit the Prolite ones. NuMed do one but only as a special order so there’s a four week wait and I think I’ll have to clip the hairy monster before then.

Is there somewhere I’m missing? Does anyone have a cover from somewhere else?

people have used the fairfax ones from both those suppliers seemingly successfully, we had the same response from nuumed.
for another shaped girth I have cut a normal nuumed sleeve in half so it covers elbow area.

Thanks. I saw some posts from a few years ago saying this about the Fairfax ones but there seemed to be some discrepancy abouttne sizing so I wouldn’t know which one to order.

I use the nuumed fairfax covers- both long and short. They fit ok for the job, but I had to go up a size to fit the curve of the girth so it didn't bunch. No complaints from the pony.

I'm another who's got the Lemieux one on a Prolite girth. I've got a dressage 22" narrow gauge and I think I ordered the smallest sleeve.

I bought a sheepskin cover by Shires for 3.40 and it stretches over the prolite!
I may get one of those while I wait for numed one... Thanks.

Mine is that exact size so I wonder if I might take the chance. Thanks.
