With a foundation rooted in the ultra-effective Shoulder Relief Girth™, the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ brings the next level of intuition to functional girths. It is hands downs the most technologically advanced girth available. Not only does the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ provide the same shoulder freedom and elbow comfort as its predecessor, but it has a one-of-a-kind patented (US Patent No. D843,666) triangular center elastic feature for additional performance. The triangular center elastic allows the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ to expand with the 1.5 cm chest expansion that horses experience while breathing. Its design also allows it to stretch in a more anatomically friendly way to contour better to a horse's barrel and provide even contact through the sternum area.
On top of the functional and performance benefits, the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ also comes with a removable and interchangeable liner (cover). This makes washing easier and gives you many more options. Now your one girth can easily be changed from leather, to neoprene, to fleece lining.
We recently did a significant update to the dressage sizes of the girth. Now you'll see the buckles sewn completely to the outside of the girth for a smooth backside against the horse's body. Additionally, you'll see our V-Stretch D ring design, which centers the D ring to function just like a D ring on a regular girth. And lastly, the lower billet keepers are much larger and hold the billets more securely.
The StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ also features:
- Intelligent looped billet keepers which remain low profile and are virtually indestructible.
- Available in sizes 18-34" for dressage and 46-56" for jump, with 4 different liner types (jump only offered in leather liner and white fleece liner).
- English leather girth body with stainless steel hardware.
- Our one-of-a-kind patented design (US Patent No. D843,666).
- This girth is backed by our 90 day 100% money back promise.
NEXT LEVEL COMFORT & MOVEMENT
Offset from center to buckles redirects the billet line to keep the saddle off the shoulders.
A horse's chest expands 1.5 cm while breathing. Triangular center elastic allows for this expansion and reduces restriction.
Triangular center elastic contours to the horse's natural barrel shape and provides even girth contact while in work.
Peak pressure in regular girths is at the elbow. The cutback sides move girth away from horse’s elbow to alleviate this pressure.
