    go to this website Victory Canter English Tack & Apparel - Horse Tack - Girths - Synthetic/Comfort - Non Slip Mohair Girth order one, wait about a week. 18 bucks. I bet you can't make one for much less especially if you count your time.



    oh yeah and actual length is 4 inches shorter than listed. example 38 inch belt will be 34 inches tip to tip.

    I have used them and from the time I ordered to the time I had it in hand was less than a week. They were easy to work with and the free shipping seals the deal for me. My time is valuable and I pay myself more than 15 bucks an hour, so for 18 total I know that I couldn't construct one in less than an hour.

    I got mine from them and then dyed it, and painted it until I got the color I wanted.

    any tips on dye colours for an ESB belt? I've seen some brown ones, but am thinking more of an oxblood reddish brown.
