  • 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.
    Example

    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.
