Ok have used a stubben string girth for years but have recently swapped to a different breastplate so am after a decent leather girth to go with my stubben seigfried jump saddle. Not that I'm fussy ;) but I need a nice soft leather one on the horse side as my boy is a sensitive ginger, and would rather not have any elastic in the girth. Not worried about cost. Cheers

Albion long girths are lovely and soft, not sure if they have elastic or not

If money not important then I'd probs go for a fairfax

In all honesty it's difficult to say, you are the only one who can really answer whether they are worth it for you.

I would say that the quality of them is good, they are innovative, the leather soft, comfortable padding, there is nothing else on the market in long girth form that comes close, the copies tend to be nowhere near as soft or in fact as well shaped. I have been hanging my nose over them for a while but can't justify buying one just yet for my 4 yo. Dressage girths there other makes with as equally nice quality
