Sport Dressage Girth Size Chart

Most dressage saddles require a shorter girth as they are made with longer billet straps preferred by dressage riders as a shorter girth keeps the area around the thighs and knees more free, allowing for better communication with the horse.

Our dressage girth size chart shows you how to measure dressage girth and will help you find the right size dressage girth for your horse. Once you have the correct measurements using the guide below, choose the corresponding size from our wide range of dressage girths.

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.
