Do you know why many girths for horses and ponies are now curved back from the sensitive area behind the horse or pony’s elbows? Read our girthing blog HERE. As well as increasing stride length and freedom of movement, contoured / ergonomic girths allow riders to properly position the saddle behind the horse’s shoulder. Remember, a saddle which sits too far forward can cause the points of the tree to dig in to the shoulder, making the horse extremely sore.
