ThinLine Dressage Girth
Very nice girth
I purchased this girth for a sensitive young mare, in hopes it would keep her more comfortable and stabilize the saddle. It does both well. The sliding Y piece allows the girth to self adjust as your horse moves. Unlike elastic end girths, you don't have to overtighten to get a stable fit on a developing body. The Thinline material is grippy and soft. My only issue with this girth was that after a few months, it developed a tear in the material near one of the buckles. I notified Smartpak, and the manufacturer replaced the girth for free. High marks to Thinline for standing behind their product.

Nice and Sticky
This sticky girth is perfect for my Holsteiner mare. She complains when her girth is too tight. The sticky nature of this girth allows me to keep the girth a bit looser and she is more comfortable and her movement has improved as she seems less restricted. I love the way the v-shaped buckles slide when they are being tightened. Cleaning is a breeze. I highly recommend this product to everyone.

Bought this girth for my super round, beach ball of a pony. The saddle is much more stable and doesn't slide any more. Best of all, I can leave the girth a hole looser and still have great stability. I definitely recommend this product.

Great Girth for Sensitive Horses!
This girth is perfect for a horse who is 'girthy.' My horse formerly pinned his ears when I tightened up his girth. No more! And the adjustable straps allow for his large heart girth. Thank you ThinLine and SmartPak.

Top quality girth!
My horse is very sensitive, so getting a girth that fit well was very important. I love the even pressure of this girth- my horse would have let me know if it was uncomfortable! Easy to wipe down after use, came out of the box soft and not stiff. Excellent quality!

I have an Arabian gelding with no withers to speak of so everything slides off the side. This girth can be tightened sufficiently without me feeling like I’m crushing his ribs and the saddle stays in place! He also seems more comfortable in this girth than he has in others. It is on the pricey end so I am hoping it lasts long enough to be a worthwhile investment. But having a small horse with a broad back (36cm tree) limits the choices; I wish this came in a 20” as the 22” is on the second to last billet hole.
