Wintec
Chafeless Dressage Girth
English Saddle Fittings/Pads

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Wintec
Model: Chafeless Dressage Girth
Category: English Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I bought this girth at Mary's Tack and Feed in Del Mar, as I needed a girth for my new dressage saddle. I bought it for my Arab because I needed a comfortable, non chafing, breathable girth for the many miles we do as I ride endurance. It was $50, and looked nice.

Likes: I love the contouring, perforated pvc, the inner elastic and the lack of neoprene. I had both a Soft-Touch and a Mohair girth previously-the first rubbed him like mad when my saddle slipped, and the latter didn't stretch and he hated it. I really liked the Wintec girth, as even after 20 miles he was moving comfortably, and it never slipped. I've noticed many on here complain about how it's not really elastic and doesn't do anything. However, this is untrue. The elastic at the ends of most girths is so horses can take a deep breath when needed. Yet most riders just use the elastic to make it as tight as possible, with no give at all. The center elastic in the Wintec girth however, allows the horse to take that deep breath, and the person can't use the elastic to tighten the girth.

Dislikes: It's hard to keep clean, with the texturizing and holes you have to scrub it pretty hard. Also, like any synthetic material, it makes the horse sweat a lot, though it's less heat than neoprene. The center being wider makes it hard to fit girth loop for breastplates on as well.

Quality: Very good construction, high quality buckles, stitching and general materials!

Summary: I really like this product, though I wish it had a ring on it for breastplates. Even so, it is a great girth that doesn't rub (my horse is very sensitive) and stays in place!!
