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'!).

Why We Love This

The Equi-Soft girth is a revolutionary answer to girthing discomfort.  While everyone has spent significant time perfecting saddle design, little has been done to improve the girth over the centuries.  The root cause of discomfort is the constriction caused by girthing which reduces circulation and decreases the range of motion of underlying musculature.

The Equi-Soft girth, when properly adjusted, effectively deals with the constriction by giving in all directions and markedly reducing the tension.  This frees the underlying musculature, allows better circulation, and decreases the restriction of motion of the gut.  As respiration is enhanced and the horse experiences less discomfort, pulse rate has been shown to be reduced during exercise.  Since the muscles are less restricted, lateral flexibility is enhanced as well as the horse’s ability to employ the external obliques, serratus and other abdominal muscles necessary to support the topline.  This is manifested in greater extension of the foreleg and more active employment of the hind quarters.

*This girth is NOT to be used with shoe studs*

Colors:
Black: black leather girth w/ black leather bottom
Ebony: brown leather girth w/ brown leather bottom
Anthracite-Black: black leather girth w/ grey lambskin bottom
Beige-Brown: brown leather girth w/ beige lambskin bottom


*Note: To ensure proper use, the center of the girth must be positioned symmetrically on the horse's center. Never adjust only one side. The tension needs to by equal on both sides.

    Stubben Equi-Soft Dressage Girth is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny Splurged on the girth when I bought my Stubbben 1894 from Smartpak. I liked the concept, and I have a horse that hates all girths (yes, I have tried them all), and is routinely fussy while tacking up (don't worry, he has a vet for a daddy and an on-call chiropractor AND body-worker AND saddle-fitter. He's very spoiled and he knows it). Well, if I didn't see the change myself, I wouldn't have believed it. From the very first moment the girth touched him, all of the drama disappeared. He LOVES this girth, and doesn't even flick an ear now when being saddled. Also, just to note, the saddle and pad(s) stay completely put with this girth. So no worries about it being too shifty or unstable. It is really remarkable...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediately felt a difference! The concept and design of this girth is excellent- I was hesitant at the price, but went ahead and purchased bc I have a custom saddle that unfortunately gets pulled forward and causes my horses left shoulder to be sore - and I do believe that this type of girth innovation is spot on in terms of allowing the horse more freedom. How would you like to do an entire workout with a super tight inflexible belt across your sternum? The girth did not keep my saddle from slipping forward - BUT I felt the difference immediately at the walk and basically all three gaits - what I also noted was I felt the difference in the bottom of my feet as well - like we were more stable as a unit. Unfortunately I did send it back as much as I hated to because of the slipping issue - which has nothing to do with the quality and performance of this girth. Also something to note: the black girth does not come with sheepskin- but is the same price. I found that to be slightly annoying, BUT again - the thinking around the comfort of the horse and girth technology is right on. Can't speak on the durability, but it seemed to be a high quality product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Bought this girth a month ago during one of the SmartPak sales. I had the opportunity to try one out first, otherwise the cost and look would not have interested me. I could not ignore the immediate difference in the way my horses moved. It gives them such freedom and comfort. Also the way it is designed it keeps the saddle in place with even pull on both sides. After trying the one I purchased other riders have purchased one as well and love it just as much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from innovative girth! I got this girth with my new Stubben saddle - I love it. What a smart girth. My horse seems to be happier and he moves more freely.
