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'!).

The Amerigo Special Dressage Girth is handcrafted from sumptuous Italian leather. Anatomical design fits the contours of a horse’s girth to allow maximum freedom of movement and limit restriction of the elbows. Girth is lined with calfskin padding. Stainless steel hardware with roller buckles and elastic insert. Stainless steel buckles are slightly off-set for saddles with V-billeting systems. Made in Italy. Black or Brown. Sizes 24”-32”.

    Amerigo Special Dressage Girth is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as expected I decided to try this girth after my supposedly super comfy and contoured Nunn Finer dressage girth started rubbing behind the elbows on my admittedly tubby welsh/tb cross. He wears a 20 and I ordered the 24 (the smallest size) in the Amerigo with trepidation thinking it would be too big. It wasn't. In fact, it was too small?! The girth is tiny and fairly thin. The leather quality is good but no better than my $120 Nunn Finer girth and the "narrow" portion (my main reason for buying this girth in an attempt to give my pony some freedom behind the elbows) wasn't narrow in the right place for my guy. The elastic seems decorative rather than functional so I returned it and decided to try some other girths rather than trying this in a bigger size as I think I can get the same quality for about half the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth it for me. I bought a used Amerigo CC Pinerolo monoflap jumping saddle about 6 months ago, and the saddle fitter recommended this girth. She did not have it in stock, so I ordered it from SmartPak - so it did her no favors to push it, but she said it was a great girth. Well, it has rubbed my horse completely raw! My gelding IS a sensitive chestnut TB, but I thought for almost $300, and with Amerigo's reputation, this might not rub him.I did order the Mattes cover made specifically for this girth in brown because the girth itself is exquisite - just rubs my guy.I do have to say the leather is absolutely beautiful and the construction is most definitely high quality - not a thread has shifted. Kind of a pain to clean with regular glycerin soap and sponge because of the elastic (which doesn't actually serve a purpose as far as I can see). Pretty disappointed because of the cost, but I'm willing to bet it could just be my overly sensitive horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality This is a very high quality girth. The leather is soft, and my horse was comfortable with it right off the bat. I like having the "keepers" to tuck the billet straps in, which my previous girth didn't have. I am sure that this type of girth will last a long time, and is certainly worth the price. I have a nice saddle, and this girth is a good match for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from almost perfect My horse has been 'girthy' so the search began to find her happiness. Excellent quality of materials and workmanship. The girth has cushy comfort and is stable in position and does not rotate at the buckle and girth intersection. I had been searching for a little more elasticity but the cushion has been enough for happier girthing. I will rebuy this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent girth I really love all the Amerigo products. This is another great one. The leather is butter soft. The shape is perfect for preventing rubs. This girth gets tight very easily. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality I researched so many contoured Dressage girths, trying to find the perfect girth for my horse, who is a Connemara and very prone to rubs from even the best girths. The Amerigo Special Dressage Girth is the best we've ever had, so perfectly shaped; it has really made a huge difference. It is well fitting, freeing up his elbows, and so soft and comfortable. I find it works perfectly with the V billeting system on my saddle, putting no pressure on the buckles, etc. I highly recommend this girth!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-Made Girth This is cut in a way that it doesn't interfere w/ the horse's movement and the leather is really nice. I like it much better than similar products I have used and it is nice enough for shows.
