- TWS is the longest standing retailer of Mattes western products in the UK.
- TWS is able to offer you fitting advice with your girth purchase at no extra cost. These are expensive girths, and we want to make sure you buy the correctly shaped girth for your horses conformation.
- We are very knowledgeable about which girth is required. Due to fitting them regularly during saddle fittings for years, with great results, we have a wealth of practical experience in their usage.
Short Girth - Slim Line - Contoured with detachable cover is designed to give optimum freedom of movement in the elbow area. Made with 100% genuine sheepskin and leather. Elastic buckle straps are used at both ends of the girth to secure stainless steel buckles. The centre of this girth has 'D' rings fitted for use with a martingale if required. The visible surface of this girth is made of leather.
To ensure that the centre of the girth does not twist or curl between the horses elbows, a shaped insert is located in the central pocket. Before washing, the shaped insert should be removed from the pocket and be re-inserted before use.
The base girth must be used together with its cover. The leather covering the centre piece of the girth is embossed with the Mattes logo.
If you have a pale coloured horse, please be advised to choose the lighter colour sheepskins, as on occasion the dye has run when wet. Please see the colour charts in the gallery photos, or click the links below.
Fading of the wools‘ surface is also possible. This is due to the composition of the horses’ sweat, which can be different from horse to horse. Velvet wears better than the cotton quilt.
If the size you need is not here, please contact TWS, as Mattes can make any size required.
