High-quality belly guard made of a single piece of leather without a disturbing central seam. The belly guard is equipped with stainless steel buckles. The curving allows sufficient freedom of the elbow and the buckle ends can be spread to an extent that rules out warping even in case of widest possible girthing. The complete underside is padded with soft cushion leather and thus offers highest wearing comfort and protection for the horse. The whole girth is pre-shaped, so creasing on the inside is ruled out. Elastic ends on both sides and the curving around the elbow guarantee an optimal fit, without disturbing the movement of the horse over the fence.
