2008 Sportsman 800 drive belt problems

My drive belt keeps blowing up about once a year. I’ve had it for 4 years and it has been consistently around 10-12 months after I change the belt that it just basically blows up and chunks of it are all over in the cover and the string wraps all around the clutch. I’m finally getting sick of having to buy a new belt and replace it so often and I want to get to the bottom of this issue. I thought it was the way I drive it but I’ve been using low gear a lot more when I should and it still goes bad so could something be wrong with the clutch and if so how would I go about fixing it?
