At the time they didn't have long girths and I ended up getting one from horze.com. I sent it back immediately. The top leather was so stiff it would have cut into him. Lo and behold just as I sent the other one back the long girths came out at shoulder relief! I've been riding in it for over a month. It's fantastic! The elastic is thick brown. It won't show stains and isn't going to wear out. The girth is plenty wide and the part next to the horse is soft calfskin. I love it and Dickie does too! We've been in the wet outdoor and it still looks brand new.
If you don't like the girth they offer a 110% guarantee. If you are itching to try an anatomic girth but can't cough up $250 bucks you will be more than happy with this girth. Heck even if you could afford the spendy one you will be happy with this girth. They even offer a discount on two girths. You can get two for the price of a brand name girth!
