“There isn’t another manufacturer, I have ever purchased goods from, whose items have a quality, finish and durability like that of Mattes.”

– Allen F Mattes Girth Customer.

The Mattes Athletico Slimline Ice Blue sheepskin girth
designed to fit dressage and mono flap saddles, is perfect for Athletic, strong or wedge shaped horses. The carefully constructed shape of the girth prevents any saddle slippage that may result in the girth sliding backwards.

The Athletico short girth is made from high quality padded leather, covering plastic spreader inserts that help distribute pressure along the length of the girth. The slimline leather version is 2 cm slimmer than it’s cotton quilted counterpart, giving even more room between the girth and the horse’s elbow.

All Mattes Short Sheepskin Girths are covered with 100% Merino Lambskin and soft edge trim, ensuring a snug but comfortable fit for your horse. The natural fibres of the lambskin provide a cushion between the girth and the horse.

The Ice Blue Sheepskin Girth is 65cm in length and made from Black Leather with Ice Blue sheepskin. The girth is an ex-display model, so isn’t brand new, however, it has absolutely no signs of wear and tear and is as new and available for immediate dispatch.

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.

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.
