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.
