The Slim-Line girth is particularly suitable for horses with a deep-set belly and a broad rib cage. With its cut-out in the elbow area, the position of the girth allows for even more freedom of movement than the anatomical girth.
The sheepskin cover can simply be removed for cleaning by means of a velcro fastener. In the centre, there is a plastic insert, which has to be removed when washing. Length specifications are measured from one buckle at one end to the other buckle at the other end. The girth is hard to stretch.
This product is made from real lambskin or has a part made of lambskin. Based on the material properties of lambskin, it is often used in the production of functional clothing or equine equipment. Lambskin is heat insultating and thermoregulating. It stores moisture and ensures ideal climatic conditons.
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. The girths are machine washable. You can then purchase additional liners to use with your girth.
*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.
