We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

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 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice purpose specific girth Essentially like a Schumacher but more tapered for the big shoulder big mover. Price however ridiculous.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from overpriced and too small runs really small - I ended up buying another girth because this was way to small and I didn't feel the price reflected a quality I would have expected for Amerigo. I think this is overpriced and their sizing is off.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Great Quality and fits well. The horse was visibly more comfortable with it!

    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.
