So I've always wondered whats up with this girth? How does it differ from regular girths and what makes it better/worse? I've seen it used on mares, geldings and stallions yet its called a stud girth, so whats up?
A lot of jumpers wear studs in their shoes for traction. When they jump, some horses bring their hooves up so high they touch their belly. In order to protect the belly from the studs, stud girths were born. You can also buy just belly protectors and put them on normal girths.
