Advice from Hrímnir

In order to avoid wounds caused by rubbing, the girth should be placed one full flat hand’s width behind the elbow of the horse. In this position, the girth closes around the sternum for full support. It is essential that the girth does not rest behind the sternum, because that is very uncomfortable for the horse and can restrict breathing.

The girth should be tightened to the degree that the saddle is stable and steady on the horse, but it must not impede natural breathing. Tightening the girth too much will cause discomfort to the horse and have a negative effect on training.
