Does your horse have an athletic wedge-shaped body and does the saddle have a tendency to slip back pulling the girth forward at the same time? Mattes Athletico girths have specifically adapted to suit this type of horse or pony, one where the lines of the wedge-shaped body, back, ribcage and sternum to belly, all taper towards the rear.
Instead of opening to the rear, the Athletico girth has been designed to open to the front (to a degree!). The way the belt is shaped prevents the saddle from slipping backwards, which can be an issue for this type of build and is very popular with jumpers and eventing horses. The Athletico girth is supplied with an attached directional label to make sure the girth is fitted correctly.
We have a range of Athletico girths for horses and ponies, Athletico long girths, short girths, Athletico dressage girths, and even Athletico western cinches.
The 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.
