    The Dream C Girth

    This is a nice quality and well made made girth. The first impression i had of it was the velcro fastenings. At last someone has come up with an easy way to tidy up the excess straps. From on board it was very easy to tighten up a hole and slot in the excess then do up the velcro. The overall picture was of a very expensive looking girth.

    It immediately moulded to the shape of my pony's belly and sat nicely. He does have a slight girth groove, so i always opt for a girth with the shaped space for shoulder movement. Due to the width of the girth it distributes any pressure, but the whole saddle seemed even more secure than the other girth i currently use. It gave me the feeling of immense security due to it being well made.

    I have a freeform saddle SB new model with swinging straps. This girth is equally going to be ideal for the saddle it is designed for.

    I rode in three paces up and down hills, including stony and rocky unlevel track. The saddle stayed in place and thankfully as borrowing the girth stayed fairly clean.

    I did some gridwork and again it gave me the impressin of stability.

    Hard to put words on what else i did, i had the shetland loose in school so he and my chap played and bombed around doing spins and sliding stops when i was on board, reining? Anyway it was fun and again saddle stayed in place and i didn't fall off:)

    I have a black one of these girths for sale. Size 30". It is a lovely quality girth, but too short for my mare unfortunately. Only used on her once and has been cleaned since. £60 inc p&p.

    Can you not exchange the girth if you have wrong size?

    I know some companies will and some won't.

    I still love mine, my spare is the roamer but that's lent out currently.
