    Tried the "stain" method after turning a girth belt light pink via several RIT dyes packs. The "stain" worked like a charm and is infinately easier than dye. Good call.

    i'm sorry i meant latex paint not latex stain. i saw the stain but the paint had more colors and was cheaper. i just wanted to know if anyone tried it and what the difference was.

    Latex paint is gonna be too thick, and will coat the material, rather than permiate it. It will prolly come out looking very plasticine when all's said and done. I'm personally gonna be going with the stain. Remember, you get what you pay for.

    save yourself some trouble, mate. Put your white girth up for sale in Cargo Hold. Go to horseloverz and order your girth in brown. Your white girth will sell quick. Heck, depending on size, I may buy it.

    Ahhh. I checked Marystack and doversaddlery, as well. No luck. Brown is the color you seek, though. Go check the galleryu section and look at the ESB reference pics, so you know the proper shade of brown. My advice would be to pick out the color swatch for the exact color you want... then get a a swatch 1 to 2 shades darker than that color and have your stain mixed to that darker color. the reasoning being, that once you die your girth and rinse it out... it will lighten at least one shade lighter because you are dying a white material. So, if you go a bit darker on your stain, the end result will be closer to what you want.
