    SmartPak Breathable Girth w/ Fleece is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Bought this girth for my daughter for her Pony Club Rallys. Anyone familiar with pony club knows how tedious inspections are. This girth was easy for her to clean and it worked great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality! Love this girth, but the fleece is I alittle long under the buckles so it bunches when tightening.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Showed Well Bought this for my daughter to use in her first show with her young mare. It fit well and true to size, was easy to cinch up on the go and looked great. The price for the quality was a real steal. I will be buying another one soon.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed :( This might be the first SmartPak product that I don't love :(I bought this girth at the recommendation of a friend, who has two of these girths and loves them. Until this weekend, my gelding had his winter coat, and while I wasn't expecting his armpits to be totally dry wearing this girth, I didn't expect them to be wet and foamy either. Our weather has been all over the place for the past few weeks, but this girth really didn't appear that "breathable." However, I held onto it until we clipped him, to see if the increased sweat was due to his winter coat. I rode my gelding right after he was body clipped, and this girth still left his armpits pretty sweaty, even though the rest of him wasn't sweaty at all. I really wanted to love this girth because the stitching and quality of it is really great, and it may be more breathable for other people, but this girth will be returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted! Really like the way this girth fits on my red haired girl! She is a bit opinionated as to what she wears -- but seems to be very happy with this girth! The saddle stays in place.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE QUALITY I returned this the day I received it. Absolutely horrible quality. Thin fleece, does not look durable at all
    Date published: 2015-06-01
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great comfy girth. I bought this about a month ago for my sensitive TB and he is super happy, no head tossing at girthing time. It seems pretty breateable but haven't had any super hot days to really test that out. I can't speak to its durability but the elastic and stitching seem to be good quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Girth! :) I like this girth because it has comfortable fleece for my horse. It is SUPER easy to wash. We washed my first one in the washer (Though I would not wash it on a high cycle) :) I wish they had it in black too so it would match my Wintec saddle. :) Really awesome girth! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from breathable fleece perfect answer to a fluffier pad - did not want to spend much but definitely got the quality.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really nice! I really like this girth. the fleece is soft. :) My horse seemed to not mind this girth at all. :D I did have to tighten it up a lot though I may have gotten it a tad big but that's not too much of a problem. Of course my horse is a big guy so he needs a big girth. :) Overall great girth! :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth for schooling Bought this girth too big at first, of course no problem with SmartPak! Got the one that fit in no time. Seems comfy for my horse, nice material.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very affordable, easy care and my horse loves it! I love this girth! I got this girth for my mare as she likes to have the fleece instead of the plain girths. It runs true to size (she's a 48) and it was a bit small at first but it broke in after two rides. I love the padding under the fleece too. One thing I also love is the fleece extends up to the buckles so your horse does not get pinched by the straps. It looks great on my horse for schooling and showing.Care is very easy, just throw it in wash on cold and hang dry. I use Method wash and a tiny bit of bleach on the really dirty spots. To prevent rust, just wipe a bit of W2 oil on the metal after washing.At $44 I think its perfect and hold up much better then those $200 + leather girths out there.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for Schooling Personally, I wouldn't use this girth for show. It's a good girth, does its job. However, I did notice the fleece flattened after a few rides, and feels somewhat cheap. It doesn't seem all that breathable to me.Then again, I did only purchase this girth to school in. It does its job and looks nice for a decent price. Will most likely buy again for my other horse.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Diss appointed with quality I was really excited about this product and it looked great at first but the fleece material is flat and cheap and ripping.It does not seem very breathable either.
    Date published: 2014-03-26
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Girth So far, I like this girth. It doesn't get too dirty and it seems comfortable for my horse. The elastic isn't very stretched out yet, but I'm hoping that when it does it will be pretty durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle, Well Made and Comfortable My horse gets very girthy in the winter because he hates cold leather in his arm pits.  After asking for advice, I chose this girth and I'm very happy with it. It's well made and the low pile fleece is subtle against my grey horse, and with the contouring it does not scream "Fuzzy Fleece Girth!"My horse also appreciates it. He noticed a difference right away. We still do the squirming and the pawing when I first put it on, but the snapping and trying to bite that develops with cold weather is noticeably absent. (Yay!) He is fine with having it tightened which I attribute to it being double elastic whereas my leather girth had elastic only on one side. It is also much grippier than mohair. If his behavior continues to improve I may just use it year 'round.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST GIRTH EVER Originally I was concerned about whether this product would not only look good, but be durable and comfortable for my horse. When I got it I was shocked at the quality of the product...the price is great and the quality is outstanding (I am repeating myself it is so great). This girth looks even better in person than online...I personally think it is one of the best looking girths there are in my barn! The first day it came in I dropped it in mud on accident and it sat like that for a week or two and surprisingly the stains and dried in mud/clay came out in the wash (which was on the "Hand Wash" cycle) and looks BRAND NEW. I would recommend this to anyone!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from So So I really liked the breathable aspect, was not happy with the fleece. Looks very fluffy in the photo but after a few rides it compresses down. Length seems to be true to size. I have not washed it yet. most likely will end up getting a different girth
    Date published: 2013-01-11
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hardware is Rusting I really liked this girth - the fleece, the way its contoured, and the breathable factors of it. I have one major problem with it and that is that the roller buckles and the D-ring in the center have rusted after I washed it once. It's a bummer because I really like the girth, but the rusting is a major downfall.
    Date published: 2012-11-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME girth LOVE this girth. Got it because my TB was very sensitive to my other girth without fleece and was irritable when brushing her girth area after riding. This girth fixed that problem and it stays fairly clean. Haven't washed it yet but I'm hoping it cleans up well. I'm buying another one of these for show only.
    Date published: 2012-11-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice everyday girth! I needed a new everyday girth for my hunter, and like one you can wash. I have the other 'fleecy/fabric' type and this one appealed to me as it was advertised as breathable, and it looked less bulky. I have used it now for about a month, and like it a lot. I ordered it a size smaller than my other girths, as the elastic always seems to stretch--or my boy is between sizes! Anyway-it fits true to size and seems comfortable and stable.
    Date published: 2012-11-05
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Value But I could have sworn I ordered this girth because the description said the fleece was removable. Not so, I'm afraid, but I've washed it once and it came up fine. Durability is yet to be determined since I've only ridden with it a handful of times so far. I like the fit on my chubby quarter horse, though, and he seems comfortable, which is the main thing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as Described in Catalog This girth seemed very nice when I received it, but it was not as described in the catalog. The description listed it as having removable fleece. This girth does not have the removable fleece; it is very securely attached.The customer service at SmartPaks was wonderful though and exchanged the girth very promptly for another one.
    Date published: 2012-07-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice girth! I bought this for my girthy thoroughbred, and he seems to like it a lot more than the leather one I used to use! It's true to size (maybe it runs a tad large) and the fleece is very nice. The elastics are nice and stretchy and break in after a ride or two! The hardware is also good quality. Would definitely recommend this girth!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple quality Ive only used this a couple times as my show girth. Quality hardware, breathable material looks great, washes great.....what more could you possibly want.
