The dressage size of the highly acclaimed girth can be used for dressage as well as any jump saddle that uses long billets (often monoflap).

Due to the natural movement of the horse, he actually needs an additional 1-2 inches of clearance. The Shoulder Relief Girth™ is designed with a 2 inch offset to allow maximum shoulder clearance. It fixes the physics problem by utilizing the offset in the girth to redirect the billet line and prevent the saddle from being pulled forward. In addition to the offset design, there is also additional elbow clearance with the cutback feature. It is built with absolutely top notch leather, along with flawless craftsmanship and includes the following features:

  • Padded calf skin inside, with durable English hide exterior for long life.
  • Double elastic on both ends, for horse comfort.
  • Stainless steel buckles and hardware.
  • Available in black or brown

This girth is backed by Total Saddle Fit's 30 day guarantee.

Additional Considerations

What is the ideal girth length? For dressage/monoflap jump girths we recommend the girth be 4-6 inches from the bottom of the saddle flap. This will keep the buckles above the elbow, allow for greater pressure distribution, and prevent the edge of the girth from resting on the horse’s pectoral muscles.

Does every horse need the Shoulder Relief Girth? No, some horses are lucky enough to have the conformation perfectly shaped for saddle fit. However, many horses do need it, and sadly there are way more horses that feel the pain of interference from the saddle than you might imagine. And as horses are more frequently bred to be big movers, the need for shoulder freedom becomes more and more of a real issue.

What if I have a perfectly fit custom saddle? First off, congratulations! Second, if your horse exhibits any of the above conformation characteristics then you (and he) could benefit from the Shoulder Relief Girth in a big way. No matter how well a saddle fits, if it is being pulled into the shoulders by “external forces” then it could cause an issue that would benefit from the proper girth.

5/5

The quality of the leather is very good. The outer part is harness leather which is durable and attractive. The padded side is a soft leather. My horse is very fussy about being girthed and he is so happy with this solution. I also like the lack of length after the buckles as I feel I can still have a lot of contact with my horse's sides.
