Ensuring the saddle is kept in place when riding is an imperative safety consideration. A girth is used to secure the saddle, passing beneath the equine. It can be easily adjusted when necessary and an even spread of pressure should be observed at all times. Girths come in a variety of lengths and styles, and VioVet offers a great range to meet your needs and preferences. Measuring your horse for a girth couldn't be easier - simply place a measuring tape from the middle of the billet (the leather strap (s) attaching the girth to the saddle), beneath the barrel of the horse and to the middle of the billet on the other side.
