Does your horse suffer from a less well-defined girth, or more bulge below and a wide ribcage?
The Mattes Asymmetric girth was specifically designed for this type of horse or pony. Animals with a less prominent or awkward girth groove, especially close-coupled horses that have less pronounced ribcages, where the girth has a tendency to sit in too forward of a position will benefit from the Asymmetric girth, which has been severely cut back in the front to allow extra distance to the elbow area. The deeper recess in the elbow area allows even more clearance for the elbow, than the Anatomic girth. Remember that the curved neck always points to the front.
We have a range of asymmetric girths for horses and ponies, asymmetric long girths, short girths, western girths, as well as asymmetric dressage girths, and close contact jumping girths.
The Mattes Asymmetric girth is available in a cotton quilt, slim-line leather, and/or sheepskin for those wanting additional cushioning or who also have horses with sensitive skin.
