The belly guard girth with removable sheepskin lining is slightly curved to match perfectly the morphology of the horse’s rib cage. The central part is made of grained leather, thus providing effective protection against damage from studs. Its natural sheepskin lining is recommended for horses with fragile skin and prone to chaffing injuries. The lateral fastening systems and central snap hook allow collars and reins to be fitted easily.
This girth features a removable snap hook cover for maximum safety and prevent the horseshoe from catching in the snap hook during jumping or other activities.
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.
