Measurements are from buckle to buckle, you will need to allow an extra 1" compared to your normal girth size because of the fleece liner.
We order all Mattes girths to have heavy duty elastic on the buckles.
This product you will receive a girth and a matching quilted lambskin liner. This liner is removable.
The girths are machine washable. You can then purchase additional liners to use with your girth. Often people will select a darker fleece for training and a lighter fleece for competition.
Quilt vs Slim Line (Leather)
Quilt means that the girth is produced from quilted cotton layers. These are the same colours as the saddle pads.
Slim Line refers to the leather style girth. As it's produced with a machine washable leather outer - it is stronger thus can be produced slightly narrower than quilt girths. The difference is around 2cm.
Which girth do I need for my horse?
The Pony Special Girth -
This style is similar to the crescent however does not have the wide chest piece - this means it's more suitable for narrow chested ponies.
For horses with mostly short backs and wide ribcages and/ or narrow chest. The girths slide forward. The crescent girth shape gives room for the bulk of the rib cage and belly. So the girth does not push forward.
Attention: There is a label with direction indicator. Always place the girth according to the label.
*IMPORTANT* There is a possibility of dye bleeding from dark or bright coloured skin onto light coloured quilt. A slight staining is possible from dark or bright coloured wool onto the hair of gray horses. Fading of the wools surface is also possible. This is due to the composition of the horses’ sweat, which can be different from horse to horse. The same applies to dark and bright dyes on saddle leathers.
