Professional's Choice
SMX Synthetic Girth
English Saddle Fittings/Pads



Manufacturer: Professional's Choice
Model: SMX Synthetic Girth
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I believe I paid around $50 or $60 for this girth from State Line Tack. My horse goes through many changes throughout the seasons, going from fat to skinny to fat again. My other professional's choice girths a brown 48 which was too small and a black 52 which was too large, so I needed another girth to add to the collection.

Likes: It matches my Noce colored saddle nicely and the nylon is really easy to clean. I just brush it off with a dandy brush after each ride and about twice a month hose it off and it looks brand new. I love that it has elastic on both ends so it is easy to reach those billets even when my horse poofs out an extra 2 inches. The soft squishy neoprene underside prevents sliding and skin irritation/galls as well.

Dislikes: It is a little bit expensive and the leather on the ends of the elastic can fade and you have to be careful when washing. The elastic gets discolored too but when you ride your leg covers that anyways. Very minor problems.

Quality: Straight from the tag: Designed for the comfort of the horse and ideal for the rigors of training, performance and competition. Four-way stretch neoprene adds flexibility, secure fit and shock absorption and is slip-proof to eliminate soreness. It won't crack or absorb moisture. Nylon webbing fastens with hook and loop material. Roller buckles make girth adjustment easy and extend the life of the billets. Each component can be cleaned and maintained separately. Washable. Made in U.S.A. Brown or Black in a variety of average english girth sizes.

Summary: I won't use a leather girth ever again. I love these girths!
