Stillwater Mohair Contour Dressage Girth 1.5" Buckles
***Please Note: Due to the quality hand-made process through which these girths are created, some variation in material color may occur!
Our Stillwater Mohair Contour Dressage Girth is hand-made in the USA from therapeutic, all-natural, 100% Mohair to provide unbeatable comfort for your horse as well as ensure security of the saddle and rider.
Mohair, sheered from Angora goats, is one of the strongest, softest, and most manageable of fibers to create a very durable and beautiful girth. Bettering the benefits of natural wool, Mohair prevents cinch sores and sweat galling, releases heat and wicks moisture -- all while drying incredibly quickly, and maintaining its strength and appearance over many years of use.
Single layers of Mohair are twisted into 27 individual strands with minimal tie breaks and consistent tensile strength. Stillwater girths are all hand-tied to maintain the correct length during use; each girth is made individually to ensure perfect function as well as beauty. Though the corded design of Mohair does not stretch like elastic, the natural flexibility of the Mohair material itself allows you to cinch up tight without inhibiting your horse's breathing. The individual flexibility of each cord allows complete freedom of movement for your horse, all the while keeping your saddle snug and secure. The contour design of this girth provides a wider center to disperse pressure to increase comfort as well as stability for those long rides and mountain trails!
Beveled and reinforced Stainless Steel Roller Buckles and Center D-Rings are woven into the girth to provide a smooth and comfortable finish against your horse and will not rust with exposure to moisture. Roller Buckles measure 1.75" in width to accommodate large 1.5" Dressage or Australian saddle billets. Durable nylon billet keepers and a neoprene/leather buckle backing add convenient practicality to this stylish girth!
Girth sizes are measured buckle-end to buckle-end.

Comments: This girth is wonderful! I use it with my Tucker Endurance Saddle, which has thicker billet straps, so the 1.5” buckles work wonderfully. My horse has never had a problem with the mohair, and it holds up really well. My only complaint is that there is no elastic, so you definitely need to get the correct size.
