SmartPak Breathable Girth w/ Fleece
BEST GIRTH EVER
Originally I was concerned about whether this product would not only look good, but be durable and comfortable for my horse. When I got it I was shocked at the quality of the product...the price is great and the quality is outstanding (I am repeating myself it is so great). This girth looks even better in person than online...I personally think it is one of the best looking girths there are in my barn! The first day it came in I dropped it in mud on accident and it sat like that for a week or two and surprisingly the stains and dried in mud/clay came out in the wash (which was on the "Hand Wash" cycle) and looks BRAND NEW. I would recommend this to anyone!

I really liked the breathable aspect, was not happy with the fleece. Looks very fluffy in the photo but after a few rides it compresses down. Length seems to be true to size. I have not washed it yet. most likely will end up getting a different girth

Hardware is Rusting
I really liked this girth - the fleece, the way its contoured, and the breathable factors of it. I have one major problem with it and that is that the roller buckles and the D-ring in the center have rusted after I washed it once. It's a bummer because I really like the girth, but the rusting is a major downfall.

LOVE this girth. Got it because my TB was very sensitive to my other girth without fleece and was irritable when brushing her girth area after riding. This girth fixed that problem and it stays fairly clean. Haven't washed it yet but I'm hoping it cleans up well. I'm buying another one of these for show only.

Nice everyday girth!
I needed a new everyday girth for my hunter, and like one you can wash. I have the other 'fleecy/fabric' type and this one appealed to me as it was advertised as breathable, and it looked less bulky. I have used it now for about a month, and like it a lot. I ordered it a size smaller than my other girths, as the elastic always seems to stretch--or my boy is between sizes! Anyway-it fits true to size and seems comfortable and stable.

But I could have sworn I ordered this girth because the description said the fleece was removable. Not so, I'm afraid, but I've washed it once and it came up fine. Durability is yet to be determined since I've only ridden with it a handful of times so far. I like the fit on my chubby quarter horse, though, and he seems comfortable, which is the main thing.
