English Leather Girths

Barnstable Riding’s English Girths are made from the finest top grain leather and crafted with triple-layered elastic on one or both ends. An extra thick water-resistant felt padding is used to maintain the shape of the girth. Double needle stitching with heavy nylon thread in center of girth prevents leather from puckering and provides optimum comfort to horse. Barnstable’s customized stainless steel buckles are smooth and rounded to reduce wear to billet straps. Nylon webbing stitched between the buckle and leather adds strength, durability and keeps leather end from stretching.

Options available on our girths are stainless steel roller buckles for easier girth adjustment (see A & C), genuine thick sheepskin padding and imported English elastic in Brown or Black.
