    Lengths, styles and colours - you set the tone

    You can choose a length between 50 cm and 120 cm in our Configurator. The tough outer material and the highly functional lambskin are available in more than 30 different colours, with a choice of almost 50 shades for the decorative trim. Our short girth is available in anatomical, asymmetric, crescent and athletico styles. Replacement girths and lambskin are available separately.

    Anatomical: For horses with a well-defined girth groove, this girth is contoured a little at the front and back around the elbow area.

    Asymmetric: For horses whose girth groove is closer to the elbows or less well-defined, this girth is significantly contoured at front the around the elbow area.

    Crescent: If a horse has a short back, a broad ribcage or a narrow chest, the girth often slips forward - the crescent shape prevents this.

    Athletico: For horses with an athletic, wedge-shaped physique. The design of the girth prevents the saddle and girth from sliding back.

    Which is the right girth for my horse?
    Girth shapes and how to measure correctly

    There is a possibility of dye bleeding into the horses hair or other materials from dark or bright colored skin, because of the horses-sweat or use of unsuitable washing detergent.
    Strong dyed leather of saddles etc. can also leave discolorations.
