    Prestige Anatomic Dressage Girth is rated 4.6364 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from top notch quality and fit My horse has some girth irritation in the summer when his coat is super fine. Because of its width and softness of the leather, this girth has minimized any rubbing and bunching. It has also improved my saddle fit and in my opinion is a bit wider and softer than other similar anatomic style girths. Very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horses love this girth Your video helped me make my mind up on this product, thank you!My trainer noticed an immediate difference from what we were using, all three of my horses love this girth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice girth The leather is very nice and I love the anatomic shape. It keeps my saddle securely in place and my horse seems more comfortable without any elastic ends like my former girth which was allowing the saddle to move around. I can't speak to durability yet as I have had it only a few weeks, but otherwise I would highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Girth I Have Ever Used I am SO glad I bought this girth. I have been wanting an anatomic girth for a while, and always got stuck trying to figure out which one. The one I was using was okay, so I was plugging along with it. At my new barn, one of the gals recommended this one. They aren't cheap, but I do a lot with my mare, and her comfort is important. So I bought it, and am very impressed with it. I thought she would like a thicker girth, and wasn't expecting to feel it myself. The first time we rode, she was better. My previous girth wasn't bad, it is a very commonly used one in dressage. But the difference the Prestige made was amazing. She used her back better, and was noticeably better all around. I am so glad I got it, I highly recommend it. There is nothing about it that is off or that I don't like. It is very well made, and the elastic really lets it move with her, which I think makes a huge difference. It's worth every cent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Our saddle was moving forward and pinching with a straight girth. This girth really keeps the saddle in the right place on our long backed warmblood and gives him room to move. Nice quality too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super girth! This is a fantastic girth, well worth the price. I got my first 5-6 years ago for a hard to fit horse whose saddle tended to slide. The styling helps secure the saddle position in a comfortable way for the horse. Materials are excellent, durable and easy to clean. I now own three, and recommend them for anyone looking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it , well padded and nicely shaped Nice girth, well padded. A bit expensive, but appears as if it should last. Gave a 4 for value because it is costly, and 4 for durability because I have only used it about a month. Appears durable though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best girth I have ever purchased I have every pad & product sold as "Non slip". Nothing has worked, as advertised. This girth works great. My saddle does not slip at all. My mare is no longer having to work with me up on her withers! I recommend this girth to anyone with this problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE!!!!! I purchased this girth after using my trainers. I had a problem with my saddle slipping on my Friesian. I've been using a breast collar forever, but finally I found a girth that keeps my saddle in place. It's made very well and worth every penny!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this girth! Have been using this girth for 3 weeks now. It appears to be very well made and the leather is good quality. It fits my horse great and I think there is a definite difference in his way of going now. Much freer at the shoulder and no making faces when tightening girth up. He seems very comfortable wearing it. It does not slip and the shaping is good allowing lots of room for his elbows. This is the first anatomical girth I have used and while I didn't think it would make a lot of difference I find it has actually gone beyond what I imagined it would do. Very happy with this girth. I only have it 3 weeks so cannot really comment on durability, but it is well made and the keepers for the ends of the billets are in the right place, no flappy bits.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So pretty, wish it came in one size smaller You will not be disappointed with the quality of this girth. I bought it for a small-ish Arab and was not able to get a size small enough for him. The length at the buckles was fine but there is quite a bit of protective leather above the buckles that would have caused pinching between the top of the girth and bottom of the saddle's flap (just standing, the distance between was about 1/2").

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works for very round horses I just purchased this girth and I am VERY happy with the quality. My young horse is round and a little down hill. My saddle would ride up onto her shoulders even with a point strap on the saddle. I tried the girth as a last resort and it worked. The saddle now stays in place.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous girth! I have found this girth to be well worth the money. It fits my huge warmblood well and keeps the saddle in place while clearly keeping him comfortable. The quality is excellent and it looks beautiful. It is very easy to clean and has held up well to almost daily use. One of the best purchases I have ever made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, beautiful, and comfort for my horse My mare has big belly, narrow heart line, and she can move. My monoflap saddle was not quite secure with a regular girth, and she was not happy. This is my first wavy girth, but it does a great job, anchoring down my saddle, with comfort for my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Young horse loves it I tried various girths on a young filly I am breaking and this is the one she accepts the best and moves the best in. It must be most comfortable for her and that means safety for me. It was an eye opener to see the difference in the movement on the lunge line with this girth.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from While this girth is fairly pricey it is a good investment. The leather cleans up well and is of very high quality. I have used this on 3 different breeds and they have fit them well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I borrowed this girth from my trainer, have been using it for about a year. I love it! It wipes down so easily, allows a great range of movement, and there is literally NO wear and tear (wish I could say the same for the rest of my tack!).I love it so much that I'm now biting the bullet and buying one of my own!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Girth I bought this girth on advice of a saddle fitter and it does the trick of keeping my saddle in place, rather than pulled forward over time. It's a beautiful leather, padded, quality girth and there's nothing I wish was different. The only reason I didn't give it high value is because I really wish the price was less. It IS priced same as other leather girths of the same type.I've used it 3 weeks and I'm very happy with it. It is very well made of quality leather and I expect it will last years and years.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I ordered this as recommended by my saddle fitter to provide better stability for my saddle. Unfortunately it did not fit as I had hoped. I had to return it, but the Customer Service is outstanding fromSmart Pak. No complicated return and very helpful CS. I would purchase anything from them because of their wonderful customer service policys

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Billet keeper design not quite right I bought this girth because my horse has a forward girth groove. I hoped that it would stablilize my saddle in the correct position. There are many things I liked about this girth: the quality of the leather, the softness, and even the shape. This girth feeds the billets through keepers at the girth ends before the roller buckles, which works well. However, the actual keeper for the ends of the billets is too far down from the roller buckles. Even with the correct size, the distance between the buckles and the keepers means that I had sloppy billet ends flapping. The keepers were just not usable, and need to be much closer to the buckles. Certainly not what I expected from a good brand name, and a very expensive girth. A barnmate has a very similar girth, the County Logic, which has a better design for the billet keepers. This one will go back to SmartPak, thanks to the excellent return policy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great The saddle fitter recommended this exact girth and it's wonderful. Great fit, great quality. The only thing is, my horse is 16.3 and somewhat beefy and I had to get the smallest size.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't Stop The Saddle From Sliding Forward This was a really attractive girth that appeared to be well made. However, despite being offset and designed for a horse with a forward girth channel, my saddle still slid forward. So, I had to return it. I subsequently got a different offset girth elsewhere that appeared to do the trick.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this girth I have trouble with dressage saddles pulling forward on my Paint. This really did the trick to help keep that from happening. Agree that you have to be careful about size, I had to go one size up to get the billets into the keepers. No issues with the girth rubbing my guy at all. He seems to like it and the cut outs give his fronts lots of room to move. Gave it a 5 for durability because I am impressed with the quality of the leather and the construction. I have not had it long enough for a real test. It does clean very easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! My mare has a forward girth groove, and this girth is exactly what she needed. I was worried that a leather girth would not be as comfortable for her as the sheepskin one I was using. But the fit is fantastic, and the is leather soft and well-padded. I have no doubt that this girth will last for many years to come, making it a worthwhile investment if you can afford it. Just be aware that the leather extends well beyond the buckles when you consider sizing. My mare wore a 32" straight girth, and the 70 cm fits her perfectly.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, but poorly placed keepers I very much liked the way this girth fit on my horse. I've been using the SmartPak Fleece Dressage Girth in 24" and would have considered buying a 22" in this girth had it been available. However, because this girth is so much thicker than the one I'm used to, it actually fit one hole looser on each side. I was concerned that the keepers above the buckles looked too far away, but that really wasn't an issue. What WAS an issue, though, was the keepers under the buckles. When tightened on the third hole, the billets didn't reach the keepers at all and just stuck out from the side. On the fourth hole, they barely reached; they'd probably fall out during riding, though. Unfortunately, that leaves the whole thing looking very unpolished. That might be OK with a cheap girth, but I don't find that acceptable on a girth at this price point, so it's going back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Girth I purchased this girth in attempt to keep my saddle from sliding forward during my ride. The anatomical shape seems to help keep it from being pulled forward. I probably still need to add non slip pad, although I believe this girth still helps! I love the leather. So soft. Very well made!
    Date published: 2012-11-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Girth My girths all tend to slide up and this one definately fixed the problem, in addition to a correct fitting saddle. It does run small as the cm to inch comparison goes so double check that it fits correctly! Smart pak was great about returning and correcting the size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs to fit well I purchased this girth for my Lusitano gelding who has a short back and a forward placed "girth groove". The measurement is from buckle to buckle, but the girth extends several inches beyond the buckles. My horse usually wears a 30 inch girth but in this style needed a 26 inch girth. In this size the buckles interferred with his elbows. I had to send the girth back. The purchase price was refunded without hesitation. Order this girth with confidence that if it does not work you can send it back.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautifully made girth. However, the keepers are quite a distance from the buckles and would not work with my Bates saddle.
