The cross-country girth with snap hook offers an anatomical bib that leaves the horse's elbows free, for saddles with long girthing. The central part is made of grained leather, giving effective protection against damage from studs. Its removable sheepskin lining is recommended for horses with fragile skin, prone to chaffing injuries. The central snap hook means collars and reins can be quickly fitted.
This girth has a removable snap hook cover for maximum safety.
The purpose of this cover is to prevent the horseshoe from catching in the snap hook during jumping or other classes.
Leather requires regular, appropriate care to avoid premature wear-and-tear and preserve its full aesthetic appeal. Here are the right things to do to ensure your leather is maintained correctly.
To ensure resilience and maximum comfort, we use different types of leather in the manufacture of our products. However, different leathers do not always respond to oils the same way, and this may affect your item’s final colour.
Our saddlemakers therefore have chosen a lighter colour for the softer leather, so that the colours match even after oiling.
After each use, clean the leather with Devoucoux Belharra soap and the sheepskin glove or a damp sponge to remove impurities. Never apply soap directly to the leather.
Massage Belharra Balm into the leather with a sheepskin glove or a dry cloth once or twice a month to nourish it.
