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.
    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.

Description

Description

Mattes dressage short girths are one of the best girths that you can use and the Athletico dressage girth is no exception. Designed to fit dressage or mono flap saddles, made from top-quality cotton and sheepskin, the short girth is completely customizable. The Athletico girth suits a horse with an athletic wedge-shaped body, where the saddle has a tendency to slip back pulling the girth forward at the same time.

The short girth has been designed to distribute the pressure evenly over the sternum area with a system of internal straps that work against a plastic centre piece, which is covered by a polyester padded quilt fabric. The dense sheepskin cover offers maximum comfort for your horse whilst ensuring that your saddle remains securely in position.
