As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The SmartPak Breathable Dressage Girth is cushioned and contoured for comfort. The synthetic material offers a non-slip, secure hold. The PVC waffle-weave allows air-flow for your horse and convenient, easy care for you!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Feels cheap I was disappointed in the quality of this girth, though loved the price. I wanted to find a comfortable girth that would last for many years and this one didn't look like it had the padding/comfort I was looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice girth I bought this as the girth I had been borrowing for my dressage saddle was way too big. This girth is very breathable and durable. True to size, and definitely helped my saddle from slipping as that has been a huge problem with every girth I've tried on my mare!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Not bad for the price, Only had it for about 7 months now and so far so good. I have nothing negative to say about this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Breathable Dressage Grith This girth fits well in a 28", it is soft and has more then one spot to tuck the billets. This is something that I look for in a girth, to give a finished look after the girth is secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth!! I have one for both my dressage saddle and my mono flap jumping saddle.... Couldn't be happier
Date published: 2015-11-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great girth, runs a bit small. Great girth, wide to provide support, easy to clean, elastic at both ends, lots of keepers for long billets. Runs a bit small. I usually get a 30" for one of my horses, but had to return for 32". Good value!
Date published: 2015-11-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from very comfortable to my horse!! I love the girth other than it rusted the first time I rinsed it! The rollers still work, but I had only had it for a few days at that point. It has been great for my horse though! He loves the feel and does actually seem to move better!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't like this girth - cheaply made The buckles on this girth started to rust within one week of using. Also, the top loop keeping the billets will probably tear out soon as the buckles are straining against it when tightened.
Date published: 2015-10-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like to use this girth for showing and clinics. It fits my horse well and is easy to clean when riding in the mud as I did at my last horseshow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for price I just bought this less than a month ago and I've used it a bunch already- usually on like 3 horses a day at least and I really like it. It's definitely breathable and thin, yet I love how it's still got a "squishy" feel. I can rinse or sponge or wipe it off after which I love too. However like the other reviews said it does rust.... Like I've said I haven't had it a month and I've already noticed the rust on mine, which is a disappointment.And for size, I was stuck between a 24 and a 26 as a 24 would normally be extremely borderline in a normal girth, however it's got enough elastic that a 24 fit very well. It isn't too big but it definitely went up on both sides more than I was expecting it to for my big horse!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth Perfect for hot Texas weather - breathable, sweat drains right off, hose it off for cleaning, and does not run my sensitive thin-skinned mare.
Date published: 2015-07-30
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice girth for the price This is the second SP girth that I have purchased. Overall it is a great girth for the money and it fits my horse well. The only reason I had to purchase a new one is because the old one developed cracks along the sides where the buckle straps meet the girth, most likely from use during cold weather. If you are OK with this girth not being a long lasting purchase, then I would definitely recommend. If you want one that you will still be using in 10 years then spend a bit more and get a nice leather one. For those of us on a budget, this girth fits the bill.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't love it Bought this girth a few weeks ago and just felt that it was cheaply made- love smartpack but not this girth. It is thin and breathable though, and seemed super easy to clean. Had to return it and smart pack made that so easy! Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very breathable Love this girth! It's very breathable my mare loves it
Date published: 2015-07-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this girth! My mare was starting to get girthy. I was debating between synthetic mesh girths and padded girths, but this girth has both! She is very comfortable with it. All girthyness went away. An added bonus is the multiple keeper options. You can tuck away your loose billets any way you choose.
Date published: 2015-07-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite girth! I bought this girth about a month ago and absolutely love it. It really helps keep my horse cool and cleaning it is as simple as spraying it off! Also because of the material its made out of, it helps your saddle to not shift. You dont need to tighten your girth as much because of this also. The pockets that the billets tuck into are a really nice touch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent schooling girth! I've had this girth for about 2 months now and I have to say I'm impressed. I bought it just to have an extra girth to interchange with my other one. Seriously love it to the point it's become my main schooling girth! Would even consider using it at lower level shows as it's very clean and sleek looking. Also love the keeper both above and below the billets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to get one for the pony I had this girth for my OTTB's dressage saddle, and liked it a lot. It is easy-up, easy-clean. We found that it fit the pony's hunt seat saddle when his girth was wet and muddy. He liked this girth so much that we had to get him one of his own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice girth! I bought this girth for my horses about a month ago. I had bought a Smar Pak brand dressage saddle pad and it was really nice so I thought why not? It's less expensive and if it's as nice as the pad I'll be happy. I received the pad and was very pleased. It's a nice quality and has lot's of keepers. It just wipes off with a wet rag to clean it.
Date published: 2015-06-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome quality Needed a new dressage girth that was stretchy enough for ease of tacking up yet durable and easy to clean. This is a fantastic buy and a great value.
Date published: 2015-05-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny. I have a synthetic saddle and can not use a leather girth. I bought the Stubben neoprine girth and my saddle slid everywhere. The cotton web girths rub and collect filth and slip. The fleece was ok, but too hot. I was just about to spend a fortune (3x the coast of this girth) on a fancy new brand of girth to prevent slipping when I tried this. Wow! Perfect fit! No slipping saddle. Clean and tidy! Thanks Smartpak. You rock!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value! Great quality girth for the price. Very easy to clean. The girth runs a little large so I recommend ordering a size smaller.
Date published: 2015-04-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Top keepers interfere with buckle The buckles are attached for very stretchy elastic. Because of the elastic, the buckles move toward the top keepers when the girth is tightened. This prevents tightening of the girth. Also, all the keepers are a ribbon-like material that does not appear to very sturdy. I am returning the girth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice girth I ordered this girth recently and was very pleased with the quality of it. However I did have to return it because I thought I had ordered the right size, but at my mistake I ordered the wrong size. It does run a tad large so if you're normally in a 30" I would order a 28" inch. I would love that it's wide with contours behind the leg for comfort. Very Pliable and supple. Can't wait for my next correct size to come in so I can start using this! So glad I ordered from SmartPak, returns for the correct size are so simple with their free return shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth for the price! Bought this girth to go with my new monoflap dressage saddle and it is perfect! Love how soft and breathable it is and easy to clean. Also looks great and could use it in shows.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK for the price wasn't anything more than others of this type. The top keeper will does not hold the billets in place as it should

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this girth in April, '14. I always want to wait a while and use the product before I review it. I am sorry to report that the rollers on this girth do rust. I really like SmartPak products and was sorry this product did not live up to its' standards.
Date published: 2015-01-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent style and quality This girth outperforms all others I have tried on my Belgian Cross gelding. It's contoured style accommodates his movements with no rub or shift of position. Easy to keep clean and free of debris with just water. Highly recommend this product.
