America & Australia working together

A reliable combination of quilted fabric and lambskin: the Australian wool cover is removable; the western girth itself is made of our durable fabric with the distinctive MATTES quilted pattern. The plastic insert is stitched in to guarantee the best padding and pressure distribution. The western girth is available in anatomical, asymmetric, crescent and athletico styles. Stainless steel buckles and fittings for a martingale are also provided.

MATTES® lambskin items should be washed frequently. Correct care and washing (see MATTES® special MELP detergent) is very important and will provide you with many more years of enjoyment from your product.

Product Description

SOFT EDGE for optimum pressure distribution

We always provide generous cutouts in the edges of the lambskin to allow for free movement of the legs, and SOFT EDGE ensures that there is no chafing. The western girth is available in a range of lengths from 50 cm to 130 cm. The outer material and the super-premium quality lambskin are available in more than 30 shades, and more than 50 colors are available for the edging. Replacement girths and lambskin are available separately.

Anatomical: For horses with a well-defined girth groove, this girth is contoured a little at the front and back around the elbow area.

Asymmetric: For horses whose girth groove is closer to the elbows or less well-defined, this girth is significantly contoured at the front around the elbow area.

Crescent: If a horse has a short back, a broad ribcage, or a narrow chest, the girth often slips forward – the crescent shape prevents this.

Athletico: For horses with an athletic, wedge-shaped physique. The design of the girth prevents the saddle and girth from sliding back.
