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.



Favorite Features

• Removable chest pad for easy cleaning
• Elastic system ensures proper distribution of pressure
• Gives in all directions to reduce tension
• Enhanced respiration proves to lower heart rate
• Allows for better circulation while decreasing the restriction of gut motion
• Allows for greater extension of the foreleg & more active hind quarters

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Stubben Equi-Soft Dressage Girth is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes! Worth every penny! I bought this girth awhile back and returned it because we actually needed a new saddle. Once the saddle issue was resolved and broken in and refitted, I went ahead and re-ordered this fabulous girth. My horse is a PRE and has a very wide chest - this girth allows him full freedom and fits his sternum area - believe me I have tried all the anatomical girths made and this girth fits the bill! No bulk at the leg and comfort for my hard working horse! His walk has dramatically improved- of course due to a great saddle and saddle fitter and my Stubben girth. Best!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, weirdly-shaped, but worth it. FINALLY, not a single flinch or restless step when the girth goes on. And let me tell you, I've tried them all -- leather, fleece, neoprene, 100% mohair, 100% elastic, ergonomic, ergonomic with an expensive custom sheepskin cover... Some girths have been awful, some have been just okay, but only this one gets no reaction from my fussy, ulcer-prone, mare, who's now happy as a clam and begging for carrots as she's tacked-up. Bonus: the saddle stays put - I was worried about sliding, but we're not having any problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Girth A bit pricey, but figured with the great return policy Smartpak has it was worth a try. My horse really moves very nicely in it, not a lot leather blocking him. Goes on easy would be interesting to see if the buclkes had rollers, but don't find it to be an issue. Worth a try for sure if you want not a lot of girth on the sides blocking your leg and something flexiable for your horse.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed Review I tried the Stübben Equi-Soft girth and found it to have both good and bad features. First, the good features. It is very stretchy and my horse was not as girthy when I tightened it. It seemed comfortable to him and he worked well in it. Bad features are that the keepers are so small that you couldn’t use them. I couldn’t get the billets thru them before I mounted. So, if you’re on your horse and wanted to tighten the girth while riding, you certainly couldn’t put them in. For the money that you pay for this girth, I would expect it to have keepers that you could use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Girth - Worth the Price! I was a little skeptical about this style of girth and the hefty price tag, but with SmartPak's great return policy I figured I'd give it a try. All it took was one ride for my horse to tell me that this is the perfect girth for him! Even on the cross-ties, he responded immediately to the nice stretch on both sides of the girth. Once I got on him, he was happy through his warmup and was much more fluid in his lateral work throughout our whole ride. I've used the Total Saddle Fit dressage girth (too much saddle slippage), the Wintec Elastic girth (again, saddle slippage), and most recently the Dressage Connection Sternum Relief girth (which he did well in). However, once I tried this Stubben girth it was clear that this is the one for my horse. This girth, coupled with the LeMieux X Grip Twin Sided Dressage Pad (Smartpak, please start carrying this excellent brand!), keep my saddle centered and allow my horse super shoulder movement. Above all, he seems happier in his work, which is the most important thing. I highly recommend this product! (PS - I can't speak to durability, but other Stubben products hold up well so I assume this will, also.)

    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.
