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)!

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

Curved elastic girth moves with your horse to prevent chafing and rubbing, providing maximum comfort. The Wintec Chafeless Elastic Girth comes with quality stainless steel roller buckles and surcingle loops for safety.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit...stays snug! This girth is nice enough to use in a schooling show, but is so easy to clean...just hose it off! It stays snug and doesn't pinch my horse who is very sensitive. We both love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice girth So far I am very happy with this for my Wintec AP saddle on my connemara pony. I have not noticed rubbing or any discomfort.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the shape I use this girth on both of my lipizzans. The shape fits them well. Even though I ride dressage, my Balance saddle requires a long girth. It's great for my very broad mare and my sensitive skinned gelding. I do wish the buckles were on heavy duty elastic, but then they probably wouldn't last as long. I just stand on a mounting block to do the final tightening. The first one has lasted a long time, cleans, doesn't rub, doesn't promote bacteria; I'm happy with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I have two I LOVE these girths. I bought my first one over a year ago and it still looks brand new despite almost daily use for 14 months. Easy to cinch up with the rollers and doesn't stretch too much and require re-tightening halfway through a six hour ride. It does not absorb sweat and get all nasty no matter how hot and humid our South Texas summer days are and mud and sweat rinse right off, so there's no grit or dirt trapped in there to gall or sore. My horse is damp underneath, as expected with these type of girths, but has never once had a sore, rub or gall. When I realized I needed a new, shorter girth, there was no question in my mind that I was buying another Wintec Chafeless.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would not buy another. I absolutely love my wintec all purpose english saddles. I've trail ridden and shown locally in them for years. I purchased this girth for my belgian QH mare (she's of average QH size). The girth has served us fair, but I must say that it is horrible at contouring to a horse's body. My mare doesn't complain at all about it, but the "elasticity" that wintec advertises with this girth is false. It is very hard to tighten on your horse correctly. When you try to make it snug on your horse, the girth reaches maximum tightness at the lowest part of your horses heart girth area, but it will not conform to the horse's rib cage closer to the saddle. When appropriately tightened, you can easily stick your fingers between the girth near the sides of your horse, but you can't slip your fingers between the lowest contact between the arm pits. There is uneven distribution of pressure. People have commented that my girth looks too loose when they see it on my mare (it truly appears this way), but when I insist that they check for themselves they are astonished at the illusion. In order to make the girth look "snug" all around my mare I would have to wrench it extremely tight.... which I WILL NOT do to my horse. I've given it a solid try, but at this point I'm genuinely unhappy with it. I would not buy another. It does NOT conform properly to my horse as the "elestic" feature claims it should. I'm very sad to say that it is not one of wintec's best products....... It is however, EASY to clean and it looks sharp for small scale showing. I am sad that it hasn't worked out for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Care Girth I find these girths to be awesome for the price! They are very easy to care for, just rinse and dry! I use mine all the time. My horse seems to be very comfortable as well. I can't use anything but an elastic girth for him, and he took to it right away. I think it is a great girth for everyday use.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
