Does anyone know of a girth sleeve that will fit a gp prolite girth? (48”)
Or if anyone has one, if I bought the likes of shires gp one would it fit even with its shape?😬

thanks in advance!☺️

I believe Nuumed do one?
they definitely do the short prolite covers. Le Mueix do short so probably long aswell.
Try Googling Fairfax girth sleeves

Actually Nuumed website says the Fairfax cover won’t fit a prolite. I thought they were the same (just leather and synthetic)
The le mueix said it fitted both when I bought mine so maybe try them first!

A horse I've been riding has one but I wouldn't recommend it, it always twists round and I just can't see how it's comfy for the horse. I can check tomorrow which brand it is if you want.

I got a Nuumed martingale girth sleeve without the centre cut out, so just a long sleeve velcro opening the full length. Have used it on both Prolite & Harry Dabbs ergonomic girths successfully. Doesn't quite meet over the centre widest part, but of course that's on the outside. Never moved & easy to wash.

Ah okay that’s handy to know thank you!

I just wedged a normal le mieux one on, I did this as a temporary and was going to buy the proper one but haven’t bothered as this works fine!

It's a le mieux one.

Pre ride

Post ride you can see it's not just moved a bit, but swung the whole way round so the fluffy bit is no longer between horse and girth. (I had loosened the girth just before I took the photo, but it was tight whilst I was riding and had still moved)
