Size Guide

How to Measure your girth

  • Firstly, your horse should be measured after work, this is to ensure that you get the correct measurement and not one distorted by your horse puffing out against the girth buckling.
  • Always measure your girth length on a saddled and girthed horse, both sides of the girth must be buckled evenly.
  • Using a soft tape measure, measure from the lower edge of the saddle flap on one side, to the same point on the other side, then subtract 30cm. Always round it up to the next length.

    Measurement: 101cm

    Subtract: 30cm = 71cm

    Girth Length: 75cm

  • Make sure that if your horse is touchy around the mid section, that you secure the assistance of someone to help you.

    Mattes are the best

    Just to let you know my Mattes girth arrived today and as always, blown away by their finished article. In my humble opinion, there isn’t another manufacturer, I have ever purchased goods from, whose items have a quality, finish and durability like that of Mattes.

    I would also like to thank Pink Equine for your professional and straightforward ordering process for Mattes goods, and I will certainly use you again.
