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 Wintec Elastic Girth is a true performance girth designed with the unique advantage of having the elastic in the center of the girth so the entire girth stretches with the horse as it works. Since the elastic is in the center of the girth, pressure is evenly transferred to the horse over the whole surface of the girth with no pressure points or ridges. Combined with soft anti galling material, the Elastic Girth is by far, one of the most comfortable girths on the market for a horse.

    Wintec Elastic Girth - Dressage is rated 4.7091 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Girth but not for my horse This is a very nicely crafted girth, but it did not lay flat against the sides of my horse so I returned it. I like my old, Smartpak synthetic girth better :-).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I have owned pricier girths and overall this is the best value. My pony is extremelycomfortable in it, there are never any girth sores, and it is easy to tighten. I haveowned three of these and will continue to use this product in the future. The best!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice girth, good value I bought this girth for my sensitive skinned pony and have been really happy with it. The saddle I fox hunt in is a jumping saddle with long billets and I've been really happy with how easy this is to clean between hunts no matter how muddy it gets. I've been using it daily for 6+ months, often on more than one horse and it still looks new when I clean it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another quality product from SmartPak The Wintec Elastic Girth is fabulous! It fits my horse well, and washes out well. Most of the time I only have to rinse it out and it dries quickly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short and comfortable We hunted high and low for a comfortable 20 inch dressage girth at an economical price for our 15+ hand Arabian. We have been well pleased with this girth. This is the second one we've bought in this size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice girth This is a very nice girth that looks great on the horse and is so easy to clean with a little wiping off. I like that it stretches with the horse's movement but doesn't slip. It does not cause girth sores. However, the synthetic outer material cracked after about 18 months of use 5 days a week. I wish it lasted longer. However, because of the price and other good qualities, I did replace it with another one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't have too many One for each saddle and a spare for each horse. Love these girths! Easy to clean and never a rub even on the most sensitive horse

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth! I needed a new girth that didn't cost very much. My horse (a National Show Horse) seems to really like it. It has nice elasticity and is also really easy to clean. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great girth at a low price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great girth I was disappointed with more expensive girths so thought instead of dropping a lot of cash I would try the Wintec for an option until I found a new girth I liked. Well, look no further, this is an awesome girth for little money. Definitely recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Girth I purchased this because a girthy mare at the barn disliked the Cottage Craft elastic girth I had used previously. Most horses I've ridden like the Cottage Craft girths, but this particular mare was very "vocal" about her likes and dislikes. She definitely prefered the Wintec. It has no corners or edges to pinch behind the elbow, and does not seem to rub in any way. Like all Wintec products, it's extremely easy to clean. It's a bit harder to adjust because the elastic is in the center, and there is no "give" on the ends. I do not overtighten girths as a rule, but a little elastic on the ends makes girthing up a smoother process for both horse and rider IMO.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Girth I love these Wintec girths. They last a long time, do not rub the horse, and are easy to keep clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase. This is the 2nd Wintec girth I have purchased. The first one I have been using for many years and it is still in great shape. I have a new horse and had to purchase a different size so I went with this same girth again since the other one has been so durable. Love that you can just hose them off too!! Added bonus!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Girth for the price This is my second Wintec dressage girth, and the only reason that I don't have the first is that I sold it with my old saddle. This girth looks great, is easy to clean, dosn't hold moisture and has space inside for the billet straps. Definatly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3rd girth to try - best fit yet! When I splurged on a new saddle I also wanted to get a good girth with it.I tried the Prestige Anatomical first but the curves didn't line up right for my draught cross mare.Luckily Smartpak accepted the $200 girth back.Then I purchased a Frank Baines from my Saddle Fitter for $100 with humane ends.That girth just didn't keep the saddle stable.In desperation I tried this relatively cheap girth and voila. it fits fantastically well and the horse is happy. The saddle has point billets and the plain straight girth ends up just in the right spot without any curves or cut outs.I love spending money on girths. But I think I will just have to settle for this one because I just haven't found a better fitting one yet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from highly recommended The elasticity of this girth offers the comfort I want for my horse. It is easily cleaned and is very durable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! This is my second one of these girth in different sizes and I have been very happy with them. Horse seems to find them comfortable as well!
    Date published: 2012-05-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2nd one My saddle fitter originally suggested I purchase this girth because it squishes if it gets too close to your horse's elbow. My horse was getting rub sores from all my other girths, but not once with this one. I decided to get another for my other horse because he needed a smaller girth and the price is right!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best synthetic girth This is the best fitting synthetic girth. My mare used to get rubbed raw by her old leather girth. I have had no such problem with this girth. It also cleans quite nicely and looks great on the trail or the rail!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great girth for sensitive horse I have tried several girths for my sensitive skinned TBx, and this is by far the best. She tends to get rubs easily from most materials, and girths without enough stretch cause her swelling. This girth works very well for her, no swelling or irritation after a long ride. I like that I can hose it off and it will be fully dry for a ride the next day, unlike her old fleece girth that trapped dirt and moisture and would irritate her skin. I only wish it had rings on the bottom to attach a breastplate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth for the price I have used this girth for about 6 months and it holds up well, is comfortable for my horse, and cleans up quickly. Great every day girth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from long lasting girth Everyone in our barn has a girth like this and I've had mine for 5 years and it's used 5 days a week. It holds up and doesn't have any cracks or rust. Great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value I have had this girth for about a month and really like it. My trainer recommended it to me, she has tried many kinds over the years and said the one holds up well and you can just hose it off when dirty. Mybhorse is girthy but tolerates this well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT girth I LOVE this girth. Its affordable, easy to clean and my sensitive horse really loves it. This is better than many way more expensive girths. It does not catch on long winter coats or rub skin when coats are clipped or shorter in summer. I have trail ridden in it for MILES, showed in it for many summers and a quick hose down and it looks new. Easy to do up as well because it has stretch. No slipping either even when used with my treeless saddle. Comes in lengths that even fit round my Clydesdale's belly. Buckles are strong and don't rust even with repeated hosing to clean the girth. Looks nice enough for showing but is durable enough for every day life!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice girth, decent price This is the second one of these girths I've purchased. The first was chewed on by a visiting critter. Love them and my young horse seems comfortable in it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only girths we own Wintec elastic girths are the only girths we own. They are very flexible in all weather, are a breeze to keep clean (we hose after every ride) and their elastic durability has held up for over 5 years so far. Having the elastic insert in the middle is a big plus because it eliminates the side to side slipping and different tightness of one ended elastic girths.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I purchased this girth almost 2 yrs ago because it was the only girth I could find in a 38". It has held up beautifully! It fits well, no rubbing or slipping. Wipe it down and it's good as new. As will all Wintec products I have used--highly recommend!
