What Lauren says - These girths are made of full leather and are elasticated at both ends, they are very good hand made option and are produced in the UK at the heart of the saddlery world being Walsall. Unlike many girthing options these girths are produced in 4 Pony sizes all the way upto full horse size. We favour girths that are elasticated at both ends for increased grip and flexibility with respect to saddle fit.
What the Manufacturer says - The Anatomical Forward Girth has been available from The Saddle Company for the last ten years. It is available in Black or Brown and in a large range of sizes.
The underside padding is made from a soft, smooth, and flexible calfskin.
The outer side is sturdy leather with The Saddle Company Logo engrained.
The roller buckles feature strong doubled elastic on both sides.
The girth is shaped so that it has an anatomical arc which contours forward and around the horse’s elbows, while allowing the girth straps to sit farther back.
The girth’s contoured shape allows the saddle to be properly positioned behind the horse’s shoulder blades, whilst keeping the girth at 90 degrees to the floor.
