Short classic girth description
The girth's ergonomic design gives the horse plenty of room to move compared to a classic riding girth. As a result, it doesn't hinder its forelegs or compromise locomotion. The anatomic shape means that the girth reduces pressure on the horse's abdomen making it more comfortable, while the offset straps ensure that the girth pressure is more evenly distributed over the thorax. It also has a D-ring with a leather flap to attach the reins.
The synthetic sheepskin lining also boosts the horse's sense of comfort and well-being. What's more, it prevents any chafing or irritation for sensitive-skinned horses when girthing. The lining has plenty of advantages as it is washable and hypoallergenic (product sold separately).
