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 SmartPak Classic Hunter Girth is designed for the show ring but is made so well that it will stand up to years of use as a schooling girth.

Handcrafted in premium leather with your choice of plain overlay or fancy stitching. Double-ply elastic at both ends to allow for even pressure distribution. Stainless steel roller buckles. Brown.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! I had been looking around for a girth to fit my huge mare and this one fit perfectly! The double elastic really helped the fit, and it looks nice enough to show in. I got the plain stitching because a girl at my barn had the fancy one and it stood out too much. The leather is really nice and it cleans up really well. I am planning on getting a second one for a schooling girth.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty nice This girth is pretty much as advertised. It's a nice girth for a decent price. I needed a girth quickly and in hindsight didn't really want the fancy stitching, but it not worth sending it back to exchange for another one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, soft girth! I absolutely love this girth. It's super stylish and comfortable for my horse to wear. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for a new girth!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Girth I really loved this girth, its decent quality for a great price! Personally, I don’t mind that the leather isn’t super high end because it doesn’t seem to make much of a difference in a girth. The only thing is that if you have a grey I wouldn’t recommend getting it. After using it for about 3 months, it started leaving stains on my grey that I couldn’t get out! Considering I have to jog for my classes it was quite embarrassing! If you have a darker colored horse I would highly recommend. But I would stay clear if your horse is grey.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one drawback.. A beautiful girth! I love the fancy stitching. The only thing I can complain about is the elastic. It was completely stretched out after a few months, so I only use it at shows now and I receive alot of compliments on it! Overall, its a great girth, especially for this price point!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I bought this girth almost a year ago after struggling to find a girth that would fit my giant horse. I had tried several different girths from smartpak and thanks to their awesome exchange policy, I had no problem with returning and exchanging.This is a beautiful leather girth and I am so happy that I found it. The 56" fits great on my big guy with my AP saddle with high billets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone tells me how beautiful it is! I ordered this girth after trying the Toulouse sheepskin lined girth. I was unable to find a Toulouse girth that fit my mare correctly so I decided to give the SmartPak Classic Hunter Girth a try after reading the reviews. They say that the third time is the charm and this was my experience. It fit my mare perfectly and I have received a lot of compliments of about the appearance and quality of the girth. The girth runs true to size. There lining of the girth does wrinkle slightly but does not seem to bother my mare at all. The elastic is heavy and good quality and is the perfect length. I have found some companies use longer elastic to decrease the amount of leather they have to use. Not in this case - the leather end of the girth comes up to the edge of the saddle flap so that minimal elastic is evident. This is a fantastic value and I would order this girth again if I need another size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AA Circuit Style without the AA Circuit price I stumbled upon this girth while looking at pricier leather show girths for the hunter ring. The fancy stitching was some of the nicest i had seen, and seeing the price i decided to take a chance and order it. When it showed up i was blown away by the quality. I was prepared to shell out $300+ for an antares or CWD girth- NEVER AGAIN! The stitching on the smartpak girth is eye catching- and the color is beautiful. After a quick condition the leather really did feel like the butter- the only downside and why i am giving it a 4* in the quality is, while the inside leather is soft, it tends to wrinkle ever so slightly but my sensitive skinned TB has had 0 problems with it! I had a girth plate added and the fancy stitching compliments it beautifully. I've had so many compliments from strangers and friends over this girth at AA horse shows- they usually assume it's a very expensive girth and are always baffled at the price! I know many people who went out and bought this girth upon my recommendation and they all love it just as much as i do! Thanks smartpak for bringing AA show ring style without the AA show ring price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Girth at a Great Price I needed a leather girth for clinics and shows and this was just what I hoped it would be! I will only use girths with double ended elastic but I didnt' have $400 to shell out so I tried this one and am so very satisfied! I wish it didn't wrinkle so much on the inside but it doesn't seem to bother my horse. Great buy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hunter Girth Girth fits well but the ends are stretching after 2 weeks of use. Nice design and leather for the price of a show girth.
    Date published: 2013-05-29
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, functional, good buy This girth is well-made and is quite beautiful. The stretchable ends make it easier to girth up a horse that "puffs up" when you first saddle and allows for a firm but giving saddle tightness for comfort for your horse. My gelding can be a little "cinchy", so a little give keeps him performing his best.
    Date published: 2013-05-17
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stretchy! It's really nice, especially for the price. I like to have a leather girth with elastic on both sides. This is great, except the elastic is much stretchier than I'd expected, so I'd go down a size if buying again (I also have the smartpak fleece girth which, IMO, fits more true to size). It is a bit thicker than I would like also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this girth I was looking for a new leather girth that was of nice quality but wasn't going to break my wallet. I found it!! My horse seems very comfortable in it. It also looks like it cost alot more then it did!! I'm very pleased with this purchase & have been reccommending to all of my barn friends. Also I love the smart perks discount!!
    Date published: 2013-04-20
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this This girth is not only high on style, but quality as well. I hate when a girth doesn't have elastic on both side. Finding a fancy show girth with double elastic in a large size was hard until smatpak came along. I get complements on it all the time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit for Ponies More Fit When I started getting serious about getting my New Forest Ponies to a better fitness level about a year ago, I had to resort to my 48" and 50"girths I used on my warmbloods. After a year, I found myself needing a 44" girth, which is not a common size carried by local tack shops, but found a couple of options on the SmartPak web site. This girth was priced reasonably and I love the stretchies on both sides. The leather is a little stiff, but seems to be getting more pliable with Skidmore's and use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice girth for the price This is a nice, affordable girth for every day or for show. I like the elastic and rollers on both sides for tightening. On the downside, it is a little darker in color than today's standard hunt saddles and is quite a bit more narrow than my more expensive girths.
    Date published: 2013-03-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice solid girth Great girth, although I can't comment on durability - ordered the wrong size and had to exchange. Seems to be very true to size though (I just made a mistake). Nice leather, and the fancy stitching is nice - not too much, just enough.
    Date published: 2013-03-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice girth for the money I can't speak to durability as I've only used the girth a handfull of times. However, it appears to be well made, and it looks much more expensive than what I paid for it. I purchased the girth for a schooling girth, but I may actually end up using it for shows as well. I like the double-elastic, as it makes girthing up a lot easier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Girth for a Good Price I ordered the fancy stitching. It is a wonderful accent. My 14.2" pony fits in the 44". The elastic stretched nicely the first ride. Great Product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful girth Leather is super soft, very pretty girth. Love the elastic on both ends. Can't vouch for durability, have only had it for 2 weeks.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice girth Runs true to size. It's the perfect chocolate brown color to match my saddle, although I wish the fancy stitching was a little more subtle - it's BIG, but looks good I think. I've been using it for less than a month, so I can't really comment on durability, but so far so good. My horse really seems to like the elastic on both ends - coming from a split end girth he is much less girthy now when tacking up.
    Date published: 2012-10-17
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrinkles? I actually decided not to keep this girth. The leather was nice quality and it was good looking, but I noticed that the inner leather wrinkled once the girth was ridden in once. It looked like it would cause rubs. I guess it needs more stitching to keep the leather from wrinkling when the girth is bent?
    Date published: 2012-09-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift I bought this for my friend's birthday. I have the split end version of this girth and I love how fancy it is with the stitching and how affordable it was for the quality and looks. My friend's TB is girthy so I got her the double elastic to help him be less girthy. She loves it and I would buy another one and recommend it to everyone. It's great for schooling and fancy enough for shows
    Date published: 2012-08-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent girth I bought this girth a month ago and couldn't be happier with it. Takes oil well, the stitching is beautiful, and the elastic on both sides is really convenient. I've had so many compliments on it at hunter shows to cross country schoolings. I noticed that the leather seems to be wearing a tiny bit from the saddle flaps, but nothing a little oil can't fix. Definitely recommend!
