I have these for all my girths! Maybe not for the show ring but for every day use these are awesome. That's not even awesome for the price. I prefer this to a more expensive neoprene I got locally. There is a d-ring to attach breastplates to so there aren't any compromises. They pop right in the washer with the pads when they are dirty and come out great. I'm in the Pacific Northwest so it gets filthy on the underneath too. The elastic has held up even using regular laundry soap to wash and I've had my first one for 10 years. The only reason I bought another is I lent mine to a 9 year old and she's holding it hostage. :) It's a great schooling girth!
