SmartPak Air+ Neoprene Girth
I LOVE THIS GRITH!!!
I love this girth. It is so much nicer than the professional neoprene girth I bought. I was concerned when Smartpak started vertically expanding and producing their own products, but my concerns were quashed when I got this girth. VERY HIGH QUALITY AND WONDERFULLY MADE. I can't say enough nice things about this girth. FRIENDS BUY ONE - YOU WILL LOVE IT. If you don't, please send it to me.

I bought the first of these girths for a new horse who has a tendency for the saddle to slip back. This helped stop the slipping (along with a saddle re-fit) and the girth does stay in place. On top of that, it was well-made, not too thick, good looking as non-leather girths go, at a very good price. The double-ended elastic is a must for me with girths, and the breathable (perforated) neoprene is very good for the hot and humid Texas Gulf Coast. The horses seem to find it comfortable (that is, as comfortable as a girth can be). I've now ended up buying 4 of them in different sizes for different horses.

This girth is fantastic! The contoured shape and neoprene fabric helps prevent saddle roll and shifting. I love how the neoprene can be easily removed for cleaning with a hose right after a ride. The elastic at both ends helps make adjusting this girth very easy and gives my horse a comfortable fit.

My Horse LOVES This Girth
I have been using this girth now for almost a year and it still looks great. I bought an expensive, all leather one but my horse has straight refused to work in it, so I switched back to this one and he was a different, happy horse. I love how light it is, is some what contoured, is so easy to clean, and the elastics break in quickly and are durable. I will be ordering another one in about 10 years after this one kicks the bucket.

A Great Product
My mare is a big girl (1400 lbs in fact) and she heats up FAST once the temperatures get warm, just like me. Her fleece girth gets soaked in less than a half hour. With this awesome girth, she and I worked a whole hour and the girth not only wasn't soaking wet, but my saddle never had to be readjusted, which is a huge deal! She's built like a torpedo and ever saddle slides back or to the side. Not with this wonderful new girth. I could NOT be happier! After taking a fall because her old girth gave out and the saddle slipped all the way to the side, this new girth makes me feel secure. I love it, and its great grip and airflow.
It does run large. My 58 fleece girth is the same size as this 56. I don't need that girth extender I thought I would! haha. Small thing, no big deal to me. I am very glad I don't have to break out the girth extender for this 56 girth.

Seems well made, but its durability really hasn't been tested as it's only been used a few times. Sizing seemed true--it matched a friend's neoprene girth of the same size but a different brand. Showed it to a friend who commented, "this is really nice!"
