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.

Which Girth Style do you need?

Anatomic Girth

This Girth shape suits horses with good confirmation where the girth sits far enough away from the horses elbow. The Girth is slightly cut back at the front and back in the elbow area. (strap is rotatable).

Asymmetric Girth

This Girth shape suits close coupled horses with less pronounced rib cages, where there is less distance from where the girth wants to sit and the elbows. This girth is severely cut back in front of the elbow area to compensate for this.

Crescent Girth

This Girth shape suits round horses with short backs and wide ribs or a narrow chest. The special shape of the girth absorbs the rib curvature so that it cannot slip forward.

Athletico Girth

This Girth shape suits horses with athletic, strong wedge shaped physique. The special shape of the girth prevents in almost all cases, any saddle slippage that may result in the girth sliding backwards.

Correct Girth Fitting

A Correctly fitted Girth will ensure the maximum comfort for your horse in both ensuring there is clearance through the elbow and ensuring your saddle stays in place. You should ensure enough clearance that the buckles do not catch on your horses elbow, additionally that the Mattes Girth Style you choose suits your horses conformation.

    Mattes Asymmetric Leather Girth

    Fabulous product. Worth the wait. Good service. Merseyside UK.

    The Girth has helped tremendously

    The girth I bought from you is a crescent girth to fit my 14.2hh Arab. I first saw a picture of different types of horses, I can’t remember where but the picture squashed looked so much like the type my pony is. Short back, big barrel, narrow chest. I had problems with my new saddle going forward and your girth has helped tremendously. I’ve noticed as time has gone on that it just gets better. As she can’t influence the saddle so much it is helping her way of going and when she gets straighter and stronger I’m sure the girth will then be absolutely perfect. This style girth was recommended also by my saddler.

    I’m hoping to add a different colour sheepskin cover in the future, I went for black to start.

    Thank you.

    Eurofit Saddle Pads and Crescent Girth

    Hi Jonathan –

    My apologies for the delay in sending pics! The weather has been super hit or miss the past few weeks and the horses haven’t been looking their best without being able to give them baths all winter.

    Once it really starts to warm up (and once we are back under saddle with the little bugger wearing the gold pad), I will send better pictures! Thanks again for all of your help!!!! Illinois, USA.

    Mattes girth is amazing

    Just a quick message to say thank you for helping me choose the right girth. The quality is superb and the sheepskin is so thick. The girth fits beautifully as you said it would.

    Very Pleased with our new girth

    Hi We are very pleased with the new girth it appears to be working well while doing flat work. We hope it will continue to do so when we start jumping later in the year. Will update you then. It is a very well-made high-quality product.

    Impressive Customer service

    Can I say how impressed I am with your customer service and the quality of the Mattes Crescent leather girth I bought.

    Initially I had to change the length size which was handled very quickly and easily and was worried I had ordered too short. Your lovely staff were reassuring and very helpful and I now have a girth that is comfortable and a perfect fit for my round bellied short backed cob!

    She’s an awkward shape and I have tried several different shapes and styles on her and honestly was worried this would be the same but it has been great and I am so pleased I took the plunge and spent that bit more, it’s definitely been worth it.

    I’m now saving up for one of the Mattes sheepskin numnahs 😁

    Mattes girth is a perfect fit

    Just to say thanks. I was struggling to find a girth to fit my horse Bobby who is short and compact and this girth fits beautifully, plus the sheepskin is so soft. He is going so much better in it. Hertfordshire, UK.
