Tapestry English AP Comfort Girth
Imagine putting on a tight leather belt…..now try running and jumping with your tight leather belt on – good luck! The horse is absolutely no different and traditional girths do not offer the ability to move, flex and breathe. Designed with the elastic over the ribcage so that it expands as the horse breathes, the patented Tapestry Comfort Girth is the most advanced design on the market today.
Traditional leather or fleece girths incorporate the elastic at each end of the girth where it does not benefit the horse. A horse breathes and extends from the sternum up the ribcage, not from the spine down. As well, horses take a breath every time they take a canter stride, the gait most important in competition horses.
The Tapestry English AP Comfort Girth has a 6″ sternum pad with non-slip material that helps keep the saddle in place and elastic that breathes with the horse relieving pressure behind the elbows. Quality stitching details with stainless steel buckles and center D-rings for martingale or breastplate attachment. Havana brown matches a wide variety of saddles.
