Mattes Athletico Girth is a special purpose girth. Mattes designed it to reduce your saddle slipping back, especially on horses with conformation issues. The shape helps it stay in the correct position, rather than sliding back based on the horse’s topline. For a short backed horse, this is a perfect girth. Mattes girths feature a removable sheepskin cover that can be thrown in the washer using any wool safe detergent such as MELP sheepskin cleaner. Stainless steel roller buckles with spring closures make on the fly adjustments easy and safe.
