Girths

Tack Girths

The girth keeps your saddle securely in place. It is essential that you achieve the right fit in order to properly secure your saddle and for your horse’s comfort. Girths are fashioned from a variety of different materials and are available in many of sizes, shapes, colours and styles. Each girth offers unique benefits. The best choice for your horse will depend on how he moves, his skin sensitivity and any allergies to certain textiles.

At Wroxham Saddlery, we are pleased to bring you an exceptional range of girths chosen from the HY, Kieffer, Shires and Wintec ranges. You will discover leather and neoprene styles together with standard, dressage, stud and Atherstone girths.

Neoprene Girths

This type of girth is extremely popular as neoprene is easy to care for and can be cleaned with gentle soap and water. Neoprene girths are highly affordable and are typically wide which makes them a good choice for a horse whose saddle has slipped with a leather girth. It is important to remember that some horses are allergic to neoprene.

Leather Girths

Leather girths are often one width of leather folded over three times to prevent the cut edge of the leather from contacting the horse's skin. The exposed cut edge is therefore the outside of the girth. There could be an elastic or webbing insert inside or the girth could be made entirely of heavy leather.

Stud Girths

Stud girths are designed to protect your horse when jumping. They feature a belly plate which prevents your horse from injuring himself on fences and obstacles and they often incorporate a martingale clip.

Atherstone Girths

The Atherstone is a shaped girth and is all one piece and may have a single strap to which a thicker, shaped and padded length of leather or fabric is sewn. Atherstone girths may have elastic ends.

Choosing the Correct Size

It is crucial to choose the right size of girth and so you should measure your horse. Place your saddle and saddle pad on your horse. Ask someone to help you by holding one end of a tape measure on the middle billet hole on one side of the saddle. Pass the tape under your horse approximately four inches from the back of the elbow. Measure to the corresponding billet hole on the other side of the saddle. The number of inches indicates which girth size you need.
