Sheepskin girths for sensitive horses

Horsedream Quality Sheepskin Girths - Manufactured by Christ Lammfelle


Sensitive Girth area, Girth rubbing, Girth galls? Is Your Horse sensitive when the girth is tightened up?

This can be just simply that your horse is very sensitive in his girth area and the cold girth can be a bit of a shock when first done up, causing him to become wary of the girth being tightened.
Girth sensitivity can also be caused by the girth pinching when being tightened, or it is possible that your girth is rubbing and creating a sore spot or 'girth gall' when the horse is moving.

Girth sores and galls are extremely painful for your horse and it is essential that you stop riding altogether until the area has completely healed.

Sheepskin/Lambskin girths offer a very good solution to all these problems. Sheepskin girths are warm at first touch and will eliminate sensitivity issues almost immediately. Likewise, a sheepskin girth will not pinch when tightened. It may take a couple of times before your horse is sure he will not be pinched, but once he realises that this is no longer a painful procedure, he will quickly forget his last experiences.

Sheepskin girths provide ideal pressure distribution, eliminating friction and shear forces, thus providing maximum comfort for your horse. Naturally the highest breath-ability/ventilation of any material used against a horses' skin; the fleece creates a natural air cushion between the fibres, allowing air flow, which helps to balance temperature and reduce sweat in this area. Sheepskin girths can also absorb up to three times their own weight in moisture. Sheepskin girths are highly shock absorbing and prevent rubbing and bruising, chafing, pressure sores and girth galls. They are also light in weight and extremely hard-wearing.

Horsedream Sheepskin girths are very easy to care for; Wait until dry and just brush off any mud, sweat or dirt. This cuts down on the frequency of washing. Sheepskin has natural anti-bacterial properties and your girth will not smell of sweat in between washes. When the girth does require a wash, it can be machine washed and tumble dried at low temperatures (maximum 30 degrees)
