Anatomically Girth

The V-girth principle we use involves a short girth that is wide under the horse’s chest to facilitate breathing, narrower at the elbow to avoid friction and pinching. It guarantees better stability, less pressure and easier contact for the rider’s leg.

These girths are fitted with a protective sheath for the girth straps, two stainless steel roller buckles and two centred D-rings for fastening a breastplate or martingale and saddle bags fitted at rear of saddle, catering for all rider needs.

As with our saddle pads and numnahs, our girths are offered in three different materials are : Sympamousse, Ligne Confort and Natural Wool.

Ballast Pocket

The additional lead pocket is located near the center of gravity of the horse and does not weigh on the horse's back.

Length: from 55 cm

Weight: 1.5kg maximum

Bien sangler -Gaston Mercier

Make sure buckles on both sides of the horse are on a par, above the horse’s elbows.

It is possible and indeed common for there to be a difference of one or two holes between the two straps.
