ALL girths have
TWO Dee's for breast collar and rear flank attachment.
The buckle shown used in photo above of the neo ENGLISH girth is not the
buckle currently used. The girth buckle used is as shown on the
contoured leather girths and the “grippy”
This black medical grade neoprene foam is the highest grade available and has a longer
life than less expensive neoprene on the market. The 1-inch buckles
(roller buckles on the English girth), and center Dees (front and back) are of high
quality stainless steel and attached with special 10,000 pound test
strength nylon webbing to ensure maximum strength. The buckles are
attached so they pull against the edges of the main strip of webbing.
This keeps the webbing from curling inside the neoprene tube, which can
create a hard spot or lump that can sore the delicate skin of the elbow,
or cut in at the sternum area. The thread used in the Neo-girth is
heavy-duty 248 series for extra strength with UV inhibitor to protect
against deterioration from sunlight. Even sizes only, starting from
sizes 18 inches up to 54.
For sizes 38 inches and add $10.00 for each 10 inches. HVF-Exclusive.
The no-slip grip neoprene girth: This all black non-slip textured medical grade neoprene girth is exactly what you need for those round horses and for saddles that slip. This girth will give you the extra grip necessary to keep you in place. Made from the highest-grade neoprene available for wet suit construction. The neoprene is backed with only one layer of nylon cloth for reinforcement.) The neoprene is then turned inward so that the nylon will not be against the horses’ skin which can create heat and friction that can lead to galling. This girth has a longer life than less expensive neoprene that tends to crack and fall apart, and can easily cinch sore your horse. All the hardware is of stainless steel. The 1-inch buckles (roller buckles on the English girth), and center Dees are attached so they pull against the edges of the main 4-inch strip of webbing, thus keeping the girth from cutting into the underside of the horse. The way the buckles are attached keep the webbing from curling inside the neoprene tube, thus avoiding a hard spot or lump that can sore the delicate skin of the elbow or cut in at the sternum area. The thread used in the Neo-girth is heavy-duty 248 series for extra strength with UV inhibitor to protect against deterioration from sunlight. ALL girths have TWO Dee's for breast collar and rear flank attachment. Even sizes only starting from size 18 inches up to 54. For sizes 38 inches and add $10.00 for each 10 inches. HVF-Exclusive. Western Roller Option: For an additional $3.00 charge you have the option of having a roller buckle Dee ring on one side that will allow for easier cinching. Request when ordering.
Item #G-GNE - Price $60.00 - for English
English have ROLLER
buckles and two Dee's
Contoured Leather Girth: Give your mount a soft touch with
this soft-sided girth. These girths have no stretch and are
pre-molded to a curve to fit around the horse; the girth is shaped wide
(6.5 inches) at the sternum underneath and narrow (2 3/8th) at the horse’s elbows. Excellent on
round-barreled or mutton-withered horses due to this feature of fitting
like "little saddles" under the horse, holding a saddle more securely
than any other girth. The contour behind the elbow is excellent for
those horses that have a narrow girth area, a large tricep muscle or
those that have tremendous extension, especially performance
horses. Even "cinchy" horses love this girth. These girths are
complicated to make, but they’re worth the extra effort. First leather
skirting is backed with nylon webbing and wet-molded to a curve. Next,
neoprene wet-suit foam is placed behind the webbing and folded over the
edges of the leather and sewn in place, giving your mount soft sedges
that will not dig in. Then the neoprene is covered with a thin layer of
garment leather and sewn in place. The stainless buckles (1-inch roller for
the English) and the dees are added so a breast strap and flank cinch
can be attached. Finally, beautiful top grain leather (matching your
saddle) is sewn on top just short of the finished soft edges. It’s the
ultimate! Even sizes only. Starting from size 18 inch up to 54.
For sizes 38 inches and add $10.00 for each 10 inches. Western Roller Option: For an
additional $3.00 charge you have the option of having a roller
buckle Dee ring on one side that will allow for easier cinching. Request
when ordering. HVF-Exclusive. State color
The photo to the left shows the difference between the contoured
leather and the neoprene girths How do people like this leather girth?
How do I know what size girth or cinch to purchase? You might need two girths sizes, depending upon how fat your horse gets in the off season and how much he shapes-up during riding. On western saddles, you should never be more than 6 inches away from the D ring on either side of the saddle and no closer than one inch. On English saddles your girth should be half way up the billets on either side. On both saddles, towards the end of and the beginning of the riding season, when your horse is either putting on weight or is fat from his time off, you will be on the outer edges of your billets or distance from the D ring. The opposite is true when your horse is in peak form, upper half of billets and closer to the D ring.
Girth / Cinch Ring Cover:
fabric coated on one side, neoprene cover will shield your horse against
your raw cinch ring or even from your saddles Blevins keeper or slide.

Dear Cathy, Got the tracking number and wanted to THANK YOU for you help! Really appreciate it. I need the converter for my Bob Marshall sports saddle and I bought 2 this time to have 1 pair for spare. You seem to be the only one to carry this converter. I have used it before for my other Sports saddle and it is very good and durable. BTW, I bought the first pair from Saddle Up Tack & Supplies, Inc one year ago and they say they do not carry this item anymore. And they gave me your website so I can order direct from you. Thank you and I will recommend your site to my friends. Have a great day, Vivian.
