The Barefoot Sheepskin Girth is made of two components:
1. Genuine sheepskin
2. Sturdy nylon girth
Velcro firmly secures the two parts but allows for 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 with helps distribute pressure and avoids chaffing.
Sheepskin acts as an anti-allergen and minimises fungal attacks which can often be found in the girth area.
The girth is idea for sensitive skin and delicate girth areas as the fur can absorb movement and therefore helps prevent bruising, chaffing and pressure sores. Fully breathable, sheepskin helps to wick away sweat and regulate humidity especially in summer.
The nylon girth has elasticated, tearproof straps on one side to allow horse to breath easily.
