MATTES ATHLETICO S/L SHT GIRTH Mattes Athletico Slim-Line Short Girth

Mattes Athletico Slim-Line Short Girth

The E.A. Mattes Athletico Slim-Line Short Girth with Detachable Cover was developed to solve the problem of saddles sliding back due to horse conformation issues. This Mattes girth is shaped to help the girth stay in the correct girth position rather than sliding back to be where the horse's topline dictates. The girth doesn't slide so the saddle doesn't slide.

Designed to solve conformation issues that affect saddle fit, the E.A. Mattes Athletico Slim-Line Short Girth with Detachable Cover assists in preventing your saddle from sliding back. The Athletico is contoured to help the girth stay in the correct girth position and not slide back to be where the horse's topline dictates. Because the girth doesn’t slide, the saddle can’t slide. This girth is made of the highest quality Mattes sheepskin with a detachable, low profile leather cover rather than the traditional quilt. Designed for easy care, it’s machine washable and dries easily because of the detachable cover. Mattes sheepskin is renowned for disseminating heat and providing maximum comfort to the horse. Due to the curved shaped of this girth, order one size larger.

Made in Europe.
