The Tapestry Comfort Girth
Selecting a good girth for our equine partners is often underrated. It is amazing how the right girth can make all the difference when it comes to comfort and movement. With the recent development in girth technology and design, the Tapestry Comfort Girth really stands out from the crowd! The clever design of the girth allows it to stretch with the horses movement in the ribcage and alleviates pressure around the elbows. The sternum pad is made with a neoprene lining, meaning your saddle stays perfectly in place!
Having used it on my horse Jake, I found it helped to increase the movement from his shoulders. It was great to feel a difference as he often rides quite tight from the shoulder. I also felt a big difference when jumping! He was much smoother over fences, really opening up through his shoulders and stretching over bigger fences. He is also a sensitive soul and fully clipped, this means I have to be careful with what products I use so he doesn't rub. Having used the girth frequently over a few weeks, he had no marks on him and remained comfortable.
I also tried it on another horse, Felix. Felix is very girthy when tacking up, and I found that after a few uses he started to become more settled when saddling. Both horses are built very differently, but the girth fitted both perfectly. The Tapestry Comfort Girth is easy to clean and wipe off, perfect for this muddy weather!
The design on a whole is fantastic, and I would certainly recommend if you have a sensitive horse that would benefit from a well designed, pressure relieving girth.
The Tapestry Comfort Girth is available to purchase online from The Comfy Horse Company, starting at £115, it is definitely money well spent!
