Like a few other reviewers, I bought this girth to use with a Wintec Childs Leadline Saddle, on our miniature horses.
I called Just For Ponies before I ordered anything, and they recommended this girth in 14". We will be using the saddle and girth on 2 miniature horses, with measurements of 48" and 50".
This fits both of our mini's nicely, with plenty of adjustment left. It's actually a little nicer, and more substantial than I anticipated. Made from a perforated, neoprene-like material, nylon webbing, and roller buckles, they make it easy to get the saddle nice and tight.
Our mini's are very green, and this is the first saddle they've ever had on them, besides the gig saddles on their ground driving kit. They both seemed not to mind it at all, both have free range of motion, with nothing rubbing, or touching anywhere it shouldn't be. The girth stays in place, and it has attachments and pouches, to run the saddle billets through, so there's no billets dangling after saddling.
I don't see why, with proper cleaning and storage, this girth won't last us for many years of pony rides. I can't say anything about the longer versions, but I can definitely recommend the short version of this girth. It's a good girth for the price.
