And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am using this girth on my very girth-y, sensitive mare and she seems to like it. No more ugly faces!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I'm usually kind of a traditionalist when it comes to tack and equipment, so I've always used a nice (and expensive) leather girth. However, in the summer when his coat is thin, my horse gets grimy dirt lines on either side of the girth from his sweat, and it takes a lot of currying to get them off. I don't think he likes that very well! I was looking for a fleece girth cover, but my girth is an anatomic shape so a straight girth cover wouldn't fit, and that's all I could find. I decided to give this girth a try because it was so cheap anyways - and I love it! Keeps my saddle in place (often it gets pulled up onto his withers) without needing to be super tight, is very soft, and no more dirt lines! Plus, he sweats way less under the girth - and the girth is dry when I pull it off, even if he was sweating. And of course, no need to clean it :) I highly recommend this girth!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this girth! Love this girth and so does my horse!!! There was an appreciable difference when I switched from neoprene to this soft fleece girth; he travels so much easier. Highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value I bought this to replace an old girth. I love it. So easy to clean, throw it in the wash and its good to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from long lasting comfort and security This is my second purchase of this girth (for a second horse). I've used the first one I purchased for three years (riding approx five days per week) and it has held up wonderfully, save for a few loose stitches. I've recommended this girth to several friends and they have also experienced satisfaction with the product. Doesn't stretch out, washes easily, dries quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and functional! The girth makes so much sense and is more comfortable for my horse than leather, especially in really warm or really cold weather. It's also easier to clean! Very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this girth I always buy these girths, ever since I had a horse who couldn't wear anything else without getting girth galls. The newer one stays drier than the older ones.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice girth; better than real fleece My horse gets rubs at the girth and I keep trying different fleece girths. The real fleece inexpensive ones fall apart but this works great and cleans up well

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great girth! Very comfortable girth, even though it's a little short (I bought the largest, a 34") for my 17.2 hand Warmblood mare. I really like the material, and the fact that you can wash it after every ride. The only down side it that the buckles are already rusting after only 3 uses!
    Date published: 2014-10-11
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable girth at a great price Great for very sensitive horses as both fluffy and stretchy with elastic both sides. Rinses and dries well after use. Buckles rust after about six months (in South Florida everything is wet and sticky all year round, so that doesn't help), but it is cheap enough to replace regularly. I have a newer one for shows, and when it doesn't look good anymore it becomes their daily one. I have not had any problems with the elastic, still looks like new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice girth! Am using this girth on my dressage saddle and have rigged with converters on my western saddle. Absolutely wonderful. Doesn't slip, wicks sweat away, my horse seems to really be comfortable with it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent girth for the price This is really a nice girth especially for the $. It is very similar to the Lettia girth only cheaper. Washes well and horses like it!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this one & so does my horse I have two SP fleece girths & decided to give this one a try. I like it a bit better--it seems to dry faster from the hot sweaty rides. I also like the billet keepers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from horse is comfortable I ordered this girth as a rush because we were leaving for a show and suddenly our girths didn't fit our growing warmblood. It came promptly and fit well and he seemed very comfortable in it. It has lots of stretch so my daughter can tighten to her hearts content and not make the horse uncomfortable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice girth Nice quality girth for a good price. I would definitely buy again. Can't rate durability yet since we just started using it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value this girth is very soft and comfortable for the horse. My only complaint would be that the elastic stretches just a little too much which can cause the billet keeper to interfere with the buckle, and you may have to tighten it a few times extra to make sure it's tight enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable for my sensitive mare! I have a "girthy" mare and this is the first girth that is comfortable for her. There's no pinching or binding. The elastic ends allow for snug fit w/o over tightening. Thank you SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth I bought this girth for my very sensitive Thoroughbred. On a recent infrared scan, the area around his girth and several inches behind the girth showed up as having extra heat. I also noticed soreness and irritation there after a longish trail ride. I was using a neoprene girth at the time and even though he has always told me that he didn't really like it, I thought it was good for him because it was very soft and anatomically shaped. After purchasing SmartPak Dri-Lex Fleece girth my horse started moving with a lot more freedom right from the first ride. And after two weeks of using it, he no longer objects to being saddled or girthed! I opted for the DriLex girth as opposed to the plain fleece girth because it is just a little bit thicker and seems to cushion the buckles a little better. I am very glad I gave this girth a try!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice girth for the price I love this girth for everyday use. It washes up well. My horses seem to prefer it over the leather girth and I think it is helping with the sensitive red head issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice girth Nice for the money! Very comfy for the horse and not too thick or bulky.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great girth This was recommended by a friend whose horse is sensitive. I like it as my horse is sensitive and I can easily clean in the washing machine. Holds up nicely

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great girth at fantastic price! I have a heavy sweater of a horse. And while I prefer a sheepskin girth, it is unrealistic to use those on him. This girth is the next best thing for him. I was gifted my first one and purchased the second because they are great! Enough elastic for the right amount of give while still staying put. And washable! I must rinse these off after every ride and they feel and look brand new. I will be ordering a few more to keep in the rotation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this for my sensitive gelding who gets grumpy if both ends of a girth aren't elastic. After a couple rides he realized the old girth was staying in the tack room and settled right in. The elastic is pretty stretchy, and although it fit my boy, some people might run into it being on the large side with all that extra 'give'.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice So far the best fleece type girth I have purchased. I have not tried to wash it yet, so not sure how it will hold up then. So far is seems sturdy and well made and comfortable for my horse. It also has all the keepers for the billets in the right places. I have had girths that just don't seem to be designed well, this one is.
    Date published: 2013-03-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY NICE GIRTH FOR PRICE!!! I just bought this girth for my mare, so don't know how durable it is or whether the elastic eventually stretches. I was concerned about the sewing seams--but my VERY SENSATIVE TB mare is not bothered by them AT ALL! She loves this girth. It is nice and wide and has elastic on both ends. She DOES sweat under it-but less that with other girths.
