In order to obtain the correct Girth Size for your horse, there is one essential measurement you need to take in CENTIMETRES:
  • Girth Length - This may seem simple, but when purchasing a girth, especially an expensive one, you will want to make sure the it still fits your horse through certain weight changes over summer and winter. Therefore you need to enlist some help and measure from the middle hole on the saddle straps, under the horses stomach and up to the middle hole of the saddle strap the other side. This will give you a few holes either side for seasonal adjustments. Always ensure that the girth buckles are clear from the horses shoulder when choosing a short girth.
if you are in between sizes, and are unsure, simply measure out the nearest girth size and see where this sits on the saddle strap holes, ensuring there is still a good level of adjustment. If this is not workable and you definitely require a different size, please contact us via our contact form and we will advise you personally. Girths are available in 5cm increments.
