Leather girths offer a sleek and traditional look in and out of the show ring. A girth is an essential piece of tack for securing your saddle and keeping it properly positioned.
At The Cheshire Horse, we carry leather girths for English riders from trusted equestrian brands including Total Saddle Fit, Tory Leather, and Professional's Choice. Look for a leather girth with roller buckles, which slide along the billets and make it easy to tighten your girth in every situation. Many equestrians also prefer leather girths with elastic, which stretch slightly to accommodate your horse's movements. Leather girths with double elastic ends distribute the pressure of the girth evenly across your horse's ribcage for a more comfortable riding experience.
Shaped leather girths are curved to fit your horse's anatomy. These anatomical girths allow your horse's ribcage to expand normally and give your horse's shoulders a full range of motion. The Total Saddle Fit Shoulder Relief Jump Girth and All-Purpose Girth are popular among equestrians who have their horse's comfort at the forefront of their minds.
In addition to being functional, leather girths are extremely durable and easy to care for. Simply clean your girth with a quality leather cleaner and use a leather conditioner to keep the girth soft and pliable. When cleaning the girth, pay close attention to signs of wear like cracking or loose stitching which may signify that it is time for you to purchase a replacement girth.
