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'!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality girth for the price. Will definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Girth I bought this girth for my daughters horse looking for a good quality, but with an affordable price. This girth is that way to go! My daughters horse can be pretty Girthy usually and was getting aired from the other Girths we were trying. When we started using this one we got no sores and she stopped acting up completely when girthed. She's also so a very sweaty horse and I have noticed it takes less time cooking her out then when using other kinds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine This girth works just fine. And it does seem to be easy to dry out.
Date published: 2016-06-16
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a dressage girth. I bought this dressage girth because I needed a dressage girth. My horse likes changing his girth size so I bought an inexpensive girth so I wouldn't feel sad when I have to buy 4 of them. I have 2 of them already. They are both definitely dressage girths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth! I wanted an economical girth that was going to be comfortable for him as well. Really impressed with it so far. Breathes great and doesn't hinder his movements. If you're looking for good value and affordable, I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth! My horse has sensitive skin and she loves this girth. I like that it is soft fleece without appearing overly fuzzy. The elastic buckles are super stretchy so order the next size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool, comfortable, practical I bought this girth a year ago and it has been terrific! Much better than a leather girth, it is cool and wicks away sweat. It washes extremely well. I just bought a second one to fit my mare's trimmer, winter figure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for a great price As with all smartpak products, am I in love with this girth! It's strong and durable, giving comfort and securit to both my horse and I while we ride!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rusting buckles after 1.5 years but overall ok I like the girth & have had it for about 1.5 years. The buckles are starting to show rust. Good value, though. I have the SP fleece girths, too. This one is a bit better for really hot weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable and inexpensive Purchased this girth. nd a contour style by Toklat. The Toklat is very nicely cushioned but the rollers on the buckles are uneven and the Velcro strips that are meant to keep the billets and fleece edges in place need to be replaced with the type of keeper loops on the Smart Pac girth.The Smart Pac girth has nice padding and smooth roller buckles; if it were a contour it would be close to perfect. My mare is happier with it because it's easily put on. Since it is allfabric I am not sure how long it will last with regular use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fit, wears well, washs well, long lasting This is the third girth like this one I have purchased. Used and washed several times per week and quite durable. This is the only type girth that does not give my 17-1 dressage horse girth sores.
Date published: 2015-12-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice I've used this girth exactly once, but I already notice the difference, and so does my sensitive 4 year old mare. No more yanking or having to overtighten to get the saddle to stay in place... I can comfortably get the girth tight (no squirming on her part!) and not have to worry. The top loops do get in the way, but not so much so that it bothers either of us. The saddle stays secure and my girl stays comfortable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for trail riding! I trail ride in my dressage saddle. Previously I used a curved neoprene girth with elastic inserts, but my horse started developing sores behind his elbows. I decided to buy the SmartPak Dri-Lex Fleece Dressage Girth. It has been great! We went trail riding in the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois for 4 days. Not a sore on him!It is a bit harder to clean than the plain neoprene (you have to pick off the little burrs from the fleece) and it seems to be a bit longer than my neoprene girth, even though I ordered the same size (the girth touches and almost overlaps with my saddle pad). My horse is a Tennessee Walker, so he doesn't have the big spring of ribs like a warmblood, so this may not be so noticeable on larger horses.Overall, I am very pleased with this girth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth at a great price A new dressage horse came to the barn with "girthy" behaviors, when being girthed. He would bite the air, bite the cross-ties, make unhappy faces, etc. even tried several different girths, including a fancy Mattes girth. He was also sensitive and quickly got girth rubs!I bought this girth because of the soft fleece and straight sides (sometimes an ergonomic contour doesn't prevent rubs) and also because of the low price. I have had the girth for 3 weeks and the new horse loves it and so do I. And miracle: He stopped all the misbehavior and air-biting at girth time! My only complaint is that the buckles do not feel "substantial" seems like cheap metal. I see from other reviews that the buckles rust. I appreciate the low price of this girth but I think SmartPak should upgrade the buckles, I'd be willing to pay a few more dollars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Girth I bought this girth about two months ago. Its very sturdy and has held up to daily rides. It hasn't rubbed my horse like a previous neoprene type girth did. The only thing I wish it had was a d-ring underneath to attach things to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for I am a big fan of smartpak but I was very disappointed in this girth. After less than a year of use the buckles are rusted and the elastic is stretched. The fleece seems to be holding up but overall I would not recommend this girl

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great girth, but buckles rust really quickly ! I have had about three of these for my very fussy youngster, and every time the buckles would rust and be hard to do the girth up within six months. I am trying the slightly more expensive Lettia one this time which looks identical but has stainless steel buckles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves a big problem at a small price. My mare is allergic to neoprene. Hard to find affordable good quality products that do not contain this material. My mare really likes this girth. As a stopgap, while I was searching for a neoprene-free girth, I had been using an ancient canvas fleece lined girth that she tolerated, but now that she has this new girth she has totally stopped flinching whenever I tighten the cinch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from wonderful affordable girth! I bought this a month ago because I am trying a dressage saddle and needed an affordable and functional girth. The wonderful smart pak team helped me choose this particular girth and I love it!!! The fleece wicks sweat and the affordable price makes it an even better find!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, comfortable girth for everyday use I bought this girth for a horse that suffers from a serious skin allergy in hopes it would feel nicer on his skin. I love this girth because of how soft it is. I use it on a horse that has zero withers and it holds the saddle in place just fine. The price point is great. Another great SmartPak product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay but not great This girth did not feel as sturdy and as well made as one I bought 4 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I'm usually kind of a traditionalist when it comes to tack and equipment, so I've always used a nice (and expensive) leather girth. However, in the summer when his coat is thin, my horse gets grimy dirt lines on either side of the girth from his sweat, and it takes a lot of currying to get them off. I don't think he likes that very well! I was looking for a fleece girth cover, but my girth is an anatomic shape so a straight girth cover wouldn't fit, and that's all I could find. I decided to give this girth a try because it was so cheap anyways - and I love it! Keeps my saddle in place (often it gets pulled up onto his withers) without needing to be super tight, is very soft, and no more dirt lines! Plus, he sweats way less under the girth - and the girth is dry when I pull it off, even if he was sweating. And of course, no need to clean it :) I highly recommend this girth!
Date published: 2015-04-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this girth! Love this girth and so does my horse!!! There was an appreciable difference when I switched from neoprene to this soft fleece girth; he travels so much easier. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value I bought this to replace an old girth. I love it. So easy to clean, throw it in the wash and its good to go.
Date published: 2015-04-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from long lasting comfort and security This is my second purchase of this girth (for a second horse). I've used the first one I purchased for three years (riding approx five days per week) and it has held up wonderfully, save for a few loose stitches. I've recommended this girth to several friends and they have also experienced satisfaction with the product. Doesn't stretch out, washes easily, dries quickly.
