Measuring

  1. Prolite Girths are measured in the standard way - buckle end to buckle end.

  2. They come in two sizes – narrow gauge and standard.

Narrow gauge girths are designed specifically to fit horses (and ponies) with a narrower rib cage.

If the flat area between the horse’s elbows measures less than 20cm, your horse needs the narrow gauge. Or, if a sweat scraper won’t fit between the front legs, the horse is a narrow gauge fit. Or, if the palm of your hand lays flat between the front legs, the horse is more likely to be a standard fit.

  1. Make sure you fit the girth with the curved section facing forward (towards the forelimbs). The front of the girth is clearly marked.

  2. The aim when fitting the Prolite Girth is to get the buckles away from the pressure-sensitive area behind the elbows – so fit the longest length possible. As a general rule, fit the girth’s top edge as close to the bottom edge of the saddlecloth as possible when fully tightened. Obviously, this depends on the size of the saddlecloth, so an alternative guide on a dressage saddle is to have just two billet holes remaining on both sides of the saddle.

  3. Always girth up evenly on both sides.

  4. DO NOT use the billet keeper. DO use the buckles

Important Girth Care Information

The magic material we use in the Prolite Girth is renowned for its ability to wick away sweat, so keeping your horse dry and comfortable. Proper care is essential to ensure the best performance and, fortunately, it couldn't be more simple. Here's how to keep the magic alive: A build-up of dried sweat on the girth will interfere with the Prolite's breathability. This may eventually cause the girth to lose its flexibility and become hard. All that's needed to maintain the girth is a bucket of water, plus a cloth or soft brush. A mild detergent can be added to the water if the girth is very dirty. Simply dunk the girth in the water and use the cloth/brush to gently remove any stubborn grime or dirt. Remove as much water as possible with a towel, then allow the girth to dry completely before using again. There is no need to apply any further products.

NOTE: Failure to care for your girth correctly, and allowing sweat to build up in the fabric, will cause the material to become hard and eventually crack.
