This is a super soft sheepskin girth, meant for sensitive bellies. It is made from two components: the first is genuine sheepskin and the second is sturdy nylon. Velcro secures the two parts together firmly but allows the sheepskin to easily be removed for washing and also allows for the position of the girth buckles to be slightly varied. The sheepskin lining is slightly wider than the girth, which helps distribute pressure and avoid chaffing.
The sheepskin acts as an anti-allergen and minimises fungal attacks which can often be found in the delicate girthing area. This girth is ideal for sensitive skin and delicate girth areas as the fur can absorb movement and therefore helps prevent bruising, chaffing and pressure sores. It is fully breathable and the sheepskin helps to wick away sweat and regulate humidity, especially in summer.
The nylon part has elasticated, tear proof straps on the one side to allow the horse to breathe easily.
• easy to care for due to removable sheepskin

Since sheepskin is a natural product, small variances in colour and length of the fur can happen in these girths. Please do not dry them in direct sunshine and please wash them with special detergents for wool. Lay flat after washing to dry.
