HORSE COVERS & GUARDS
A horse girth covers is an element of equestrian harness designed to secure the saddle. It is very important that the girth is made of elastic and stretchable materials. This is due to the fact that during fast movements the horse’s chest is actively expanding and in order for the saddle to be firmly fixed and not slipping, the girth must increase and contract following the animal’s chest.
It is important to keep the girth clean and dry as a dirty girth will
rub and injure the horse’s skin, which will definitely affect its behavior.
For safe riding, the saddle must be firmly fixed on the horse’s back, not slipping or fidgeting. For a secure fit, a girth cover is used – a product made of wool or leather, which is fixed under the horse’s belly to hold the saddle in one position. The girth cover are equipped with elastic bands. They are necessary so that during movement the animal can breathe without hindrance, and the clamping effect is maintained without loss of tightening strength. Additionally, products are equipped with inserts or covers that protect the skin of the animal from chafing. The girth is secured with buckles.
Using a guard will keep your horse’s nose or neck from chafing and soreness. The Nose/ neck guard serves as a cushion between the horse’s skin and the bridle or halter and makes the horse riding more comfortable for the rider and animal.
