The material for the 'Stretch & Breath' Dressage Girth has been specially developed for Barefoot. It consists of many fine elasticated bands, weaved with tear-resistant nylon thread. This gives Barefoot a material that is tear-resistant but also totally stretchy. The 'Stretch & Breath' material is then wrapped in a soft neoprene cover that protects the horse's girth area.
Advantages of the 'Stretch & Breath' Girth:
- completely elastic. The horse's breathing is not restricted
- finely woven, tear-resistant material
- soft outer neoprene cover
- backed roller buckles at both ends
- central ring for attaching martingale or breastplate
- machine washable
Length: 45cm, 55cm, 65cm, 75cm, 85cm
Tip: The elastic material conforms to the horse's body, therefore the girth can stretch (adapt to your horse). Turn the girth every now and again to keep it balanced
Washing tip : Place in a pillow case to avoid buckles damaging your washing machine. Wash at 30 degrees delicate cycle (short wash).
How to measure for correct girth length:
The buckles should always lay one hand above the horse's elbow. Since the girth length is measured buckle to buckle, just place the measuring tape about one hand above the elbow, run it snug under the belly to the same spot on the other side of the horse. The d-ring should be right in the middle of the horse's chest when the girth is tightened.
