Henri De Rivel
Nylon Girth
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Henri De Rivel
Model: Nylon Girth
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I bought this from Just For Ponies for around $28 plus shipping in 38", as I needed a girth for my pony. I ordered it with a lot of other things, and it was part of a birthday gift.

Likes: I like the double elastic and roller buckles. Girth comes clean easily. I also liked the synthetic fleece lining at first. The (I believe nylon) outer is durable and does not show dirt or mud badly. This girth is easy to use.

Dislikes: I didn't like the fact that the girth is black (does NOT match my tack). The synthetic fleece also compacted quickly and even after washing it, did not puff back up. It actually isn't all that soft, but at least it hasn't torn yet. I don't particularly like how sort the tongues on the buckles are. It makes me worried the girth could come undone. The girth isn't contoured, but I didn't expect it to be for the price.

Quality: This girth is constructed fairly well for the price. The elastic has not frayed, torn, or wrinkled up at all in the time I've had it. It tightens easily. The outer is durable, but the fleece is on the rough side and compacts down very quickly. It only comes in black, and my tack is a medium brown. It needs to come in more color varieties.

Summary: Good girth overall, serves its purpose for schooling and local shows.
