The Slim-Line Short Asymmetric Girth with Detachable Cover is designed with an anatomically correct shape that is contoured extra deep at the elbows with a wide centerpiece to provide extra comfort for the horse.
Designed for horses who’s shoulder, elbow, and girth position line up, causing no room for the girth which frequently causes rubs and galling with a normal shaped girth. Anatomically shaped extra deep at the elbow for relief from any pressure. E.A. Mattes Sheepskin Girths provide superior protection against rubbing, galling, and overall discomfort.
The natural properties of sheepskin, including heat dissemination, breathability and the ability to reduce friction, make sheepskin the ideal girth material.
We highly recommend Mattes MELP to clean all of your sheepskin, washable leather & wool products. It is specially formulated with re-greasing agents that won’t harden leather.
Option to purchase base girths and sheepskin covers separately allow even greater flexibility for using one girth on multiple horses.
