More than a girth, an experience… THE GIRTH THAT THE INTERNET IS RAVING ABOUT! The root cause of girthing discomfort lies in constriction, as it reduces the horses circulation and decreases the range of motion of the underlying musculature. In the Equi-Soft Girth, an ingenious and exclusive system of elastic rings offers perfect girth pressure distribution. The rings eliminate uncomfortable pressure points as well as complaints from the horse when being girthed. An innovative girth shape allows the horse to expand its chest when needed during exercise, and as the girth allows expansion, the elastic rings also expand and contract with the rib cage to maintain that uniform tension. When positioned symmetrically in the centre of the horses girth line and properly adjusted, this girth effectively deals with girth constriction by giving in all directions and markedly reducing tension. This flexibility frees the underlying musculature, allows better circulation and decreases the restriction of the motion of the gut. As respiration is enhanced and the horse experiences less discomfort, the pulse rate also reduces during exercise. In fact, in a comparative study of girths, all horses, without exception, maintained much lower heart rates when worked in the Stübben Equi-Soft girth. Because the muscles are less restricted, lateral flexibility is enhanced along with the horses ability to employ the external obliques, serratus and other abdominal muscles necessary to support the topline. Use of these muscles manifests in greater extension of the foreleg and more active employment of the hindquarters. Its ingenious and exclusive system of elastic rings offers perfect girth pressure distribution, eliminates the feeling of pressure and the complaints of the horse when being girthed. In a Comparative study of girths All horses, without exception, maintained much lower heart rates when using the Stübben/Equi-Soft® girth. Its special design allows the horse to expand its chest when needed during exercise. The elastic rings expand and contract with the rib cage, maintaining a uniform tension. The Equi-Soft webbing strap is the only fully adaptable girth on the market that adapts to the anatomy of the horse serving for all horses and ponies. Special design allows the hook/loop girth cover to be changed in seconds. IMPORTANT ADVICE: To correctly use the Equi-Soft® girth, the center of the girth must be positioned symmetrically in the center of the horses girth line. Never adjust only one side, the tension should be similar on both sides of the girth. PRODUCT FINALIST SPOGA HORSE INNOVATION AWARD 2012.
