The Mattes Athletico Girth is a perfect fit for Athletic, strong or wedge shaped horses. The special shape of the belt prevents in almost all cases, any saddle slippage that may result in the girth sliding backwards.

The Mattes Athletico Girth has been specially shaped to prevent saddle slippage where the girth slides backwards and spreader inserts covered with a padded quilt fabric help to distribute pressure across the girth, cushioned with only the finest Merino Lambskin and soft edge trim ensuring a snug but comfortable fit for your horse.

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 middle hole on one side, to the same point on the other side, if it is between lengths, always round it up to the next length.
    Example

    Measurement: 133cm

    Girth Length: 135cm

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

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.

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.
