Model: Split End Girth (View all Split End Girth reviews)

Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I purchased this girth as a set with a saddle, saddle pad, and breastplate at a local tack shop, Champion Saddlery, for $800. Champion sells the girth for $114.70 separate.

Likes: I like this girth so much because its not a stiff overlay girth that never loses it half-circle shape. Its a chafeless roller buckle girth that is beautifully made and withstands the rigors of me riding 3-4 times weekly. The 48" fits anywhere from my 14hh Appy QH cross to my 16.3hh Thoroughbred. It cleans easily, and the reddish colored "havanna" although its not really "havanna" does not darken or stain with water or liquid saddle soap. Mud, dirt, sand, and hair all come of easily and readily.

Dislikes: At the ends of the girth, the leather is turning black, or dark brown.

Quality: Extra soft, chafeless girth to match Stubben saddles. Split end style with elastic at one end. Stainless steel roller buckles and center D-ring. Comes in ebony and havanna.

Summary: This is possibly the best girth I have every come across or owned, including expensive Barsnby girths, although I wish it had elastic on both ends.
