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 lining to neoprene lining.

The StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ also features:

  • Intelligent looped billet keepers which remain low profile and are virtually indestructible.
  • Available in sizes 18-34 inches, in 3 colors, with 4 different liner types (see drop-down menu above).
  • English leather girth body with stainless steel hardware
  • Double center D ring with included (removable) leather strap for compatibility with any attachment.
  • Our one-of-a-kind patented design (US Patent No. D843,666).

This girth is backed by our 30 day 100% money back guaranty!

    This is absolutely the best girth ever!!! It has provided the much needed shoulder relief for my horse, the saddle does not move and my horse is comfortable for all our rides. At the barn, I was the first to use this girth — and now other riders want to know about it. Thank you for designing a girth that truly addresses a significant concern for many riders and horses. I have a happy horse with no slipping saddle and shoulders that move freely and with comfort.

    I love this girth! I have other anatomical girths that work fairly well, but the key to this one is the elastic in the middle. If you have a horse who is round or has well sprung ribs you need to get this girth. Helps tremendously with rolling and slipping. I have two Gypsy Vanners and we they are so much happier with this girth as am I as I don’t have to tighten the girth as much and my saddle no longer slips. I am ordering a second one!

    This is an amazing girth. The elastic is just right. The girth does not need to be super tight because the shape allows it to stay in place. My warm blood mare has big, sloping shoulders with a very forward girth grove. Her saddle is a mono-flap with a V billet system. With this girth the saddle is very stable and stays off her shoulders. She is so happy in this girth. Thank you!

    This girth has the most contour to any of the ones I have seen. I have used the stretchtek girth on at least 5 different horses and each has had a positive response to the give in the girth. Their reactions ranged from breathing more deeply to being almost immediately more relaxed. And in one instance it improved the stability of the saddle immensely. I have now just seen this girth comes in dark brown which was my one reservation when I bought mine. I’ll just have to save some money and get another one!

    This girth is amazing for both horse and rider! I ride using a dressage saddle especially made for a woman’s pelvis along with the flex/freedom panels. This girth not only expands but flexs as well as provides an extremely secure saddle fit. My Lusitania didn’t flinch an ear as the girth was tighten. I believe the innovative technology between the sternum placed elastic and soft hugging of the neoprene is a winner! Will be buying one for my trainer! I ordered a 28 and it fits my horse as a 28. Love how you can peel off the neoprene from the outer leather elastic girth.

  6. Jill Ellis

    I ordered this girth for my treeless saddle and hoping it would be more comfortable for my horse. I believe it is as she will now trot willing and for a longer period of time than before. I have to believe it is because the elastic allows her more freedom in her breathing and flexing of the muscles. I am really glad I ordered this one. It is more expensive but I think it was worth the additional cost.

    If you’re on the fence about this girth, just buy it!! I have a friesian cross with massive shoulders, and my saddle would slip forward onto her shoulders no matter how many non-slip girths and saddle pads I used. Saddle fit wasn’t an issue–saddle fits both her and myself wonderfully. Finally I figured out that the girth was pulling the saddle forward–she has a ridiculously far forward girth groove. This girth is the ONLY one that works!! I honestly used to have to get off every 15 minutes to move her saddle backward, this made my life so much easier, and my horse so much more comfortable! I’ve had it for nearly 2 years, and there’s absolutely zero wear on it; extremely durable and well made girth!

    I use this girth on all of my horses from youngsters to experienced eventers. I cannot thank you enough for producing something so in tune with a horse’s needs. None of my saddles slip with these births and even the girthy/sensitive horses work beautifully in it !! I can’t put into words how IN LOVE I am with its quality and design. The customer service is also outstanding and although based in England, I won’t be buying my future girths from anywhere else !!
    Thank you!
