The Professional's Choice SMx Girth is an advanced synthetic dressage girth featuring four-way stretch neoprene as a shock absorber. Elastic with roller buckles on both ends makes for even tightening. The neoprene is more comfortable than traditional leather for sensitive horses as it doesn't have to be over-tightened. Non-chafing and flexible, this dressage girth stays in place. The neoprene is detachable allowing this girth to be washed.
