The Stübben Equi-Soft® Dressage Girth with Sheepskin Back is a revolutionary solution to the problem of girthing discomfort, which can greatly inhibit a horse’s performance. The root cause of girthing discomfort lies in constriction, as it reduces the horse’s circulation and decreases the range of motion of the underlying musculature. In the Equi-Soft Girth, an ingenious and exclusive system of elastic rings offers perfect girth pressure distribution. The rings eliminate uncomfortable pressure points as well as complaints from the horse when being girthed. An innovative girth shape allows the horse to expand its chest when needed during exercise, and as the girth allows expansion, the elastic rings also expand and contract with the rib cage to maintain that uniform tension. When positioned symmetrically in the center of the horse’s girth line and properly adjusted, this girth effectively deals with girth constriction by giving in all directions and markedly reducing tension. This flexibility frees the underlying musculature, allows better circulation and decreases the restriction of the motion of the gut. As respiration is enhanced and the horse experiences less discomfort, the pulse rate also reduces during exercise. In fact, in a comparative study of girths, all horses, without exception, maintained much lower heart rates when worked in the Stübben Equi-Soft girth. Because the muscles are less restricted, lateral flexibility is enhanced along with the horse’s ability to employ the external obliques, serratus and other abdominal muscles necessary to support the topline. Use of these muscles manifests in greater extension of the foreleg and more active employment of the hindquarters. The genuine sheepskin back is naturally soft and moisture-wicking against the horse's skin. A thoughtful design allows the girth cover to be changed in just seconds.
