Why Choose a Mattes Short Girth?

  • Their extra-thick sheepskin makes them especially gentle on sensitive girth areas, up to 100 cm long.
  • Padded with POLY-FLEX® and super soft thanks to SOFT-EDGE.
  • Choose from countless combinations of fabric, leather and sheepskin.
  • Why not order a spare sheepskin cover at the same time? Have a home colour cover and a more subdued combination for Shows and Competing.

Mattes Short Girth SLIM LINE

Meeting the highest demands: with leather – For an extra $30!

SLIM LINE is one of Mattes latest generation girths – and it has already proven itself many times over:

The super premium quality sheepskin cover is removable and the whole girth has a flat and slimline design. This looks much more elegant and provides greater freedom of movement around the elbows. Visible areas are finished in high quality leather. The plastic inserts are easy to remove before washing and just as quick to replace once the girth is dry.

Design your SLIM LINE short girth to suit your needs and preferences:

  • The short girth is available in a range of lengths from 50 cm to 120 cm.
  • The tough leather comes in your choice of black, brown or champagne, while the functional sheepskin is available in more than 30 wide-ranging colours.
  • The short girth is available with or without elastic buckle straps.
  • Replacement girths and sheepskin are available separately.

There is a possibility of dye bleeding into the horses hair or other materials from dark or bright colored skin, because of the horses-sweat or use of unsuitable washing detergent.
Strong dyed leather of saddles etc. can also leave discolorations.
