Wink Best Girths??

I'm looking for a good girth that I could use when I show. I show in Hunters(: Are there any girths that are made for jumping??

I don't know if they're made for jumping, but I use two different girths. Leather looks nicer when I show, but it also pinches. So make sure you stretch your horse's legs after you tighten the girth. I can't think of the namebrand for mine, but make sure it has double elastics. None, or only on one side is easier to find, but SO annoying because it doesn't stretch much, which I find restricts my horse's movement over jumps. (Yeah, I'm insane, I know :) ) When I school or at winter schooling shows, I use fleece. I way prefer fleece because it never pinches. I believe mine is a Coolmax... Anyway, I think the type and namebrand is a complete personal preference, but that's just my opinion. :)

*Edit: Sorry, I don't really think I answered your question at all...

Hello no there is not girths meant for jumping and for showing yes you want a elastic , strechy , BREATHABLE one so make sure you get a good reputation brand yes it is alot more money but save it for showing and keep it nice and in good condition I find leather the best with elastics on both sides other than that I mean also you can get nylon but not as nice as leather
Henri De Rivel Advantage Overlay Girth - Statelinetack.com okay so there is a good idea of a girth for showing once the girth is right and ready andd you are just about to mount take the horses legs and pull them forward a little and be careful okay then mount up and that is good okay have fun shopping oh and use statelinetack there is fast shipping and guranteed satisfaction

I like this one. I use it for schooling, trails, show, and it's super easy to clean--just wipe it down with a sponge.

Fuadteagan, I suggest you do your research before posting because there are most certainly jumping girths. Many have belly guards and the like, and are shaped differently.

See I knew that there are jumping girths cause the ones that the grand prix use are very wide around the belly

Mine are all in stud girths which are the one that's are wide around the belly they prevent the horse hurting itself when tucking in for the fence mainly when you are jumping on grass with studs in I use them they are brilliant and its great to see the wear in the girths so you no its working

My one tb is super sensitive so I use an smx for schooling and a le tixerant for shows bc he will hit his chest with his feet and he gets edemas from any leather girth, even double ended elastic, and even belly guard nice girths. *sigh* that's sky...

I have to say though the le tixerant girth is amazing
