Patent No: GB 2488030 B / Design reg: 001839028
Developed, designed and handmade in the UK
The first girth to be based on scientific research and proven to improve the horse’s performance by:
- Dramatically reducing pressure (up to 82%)
- Significantly increasing range of movement (up to 33% in forelimb protraction compared to the horse’s normal girth)
- Eliminating gait asymmetry
The Performance Girth is the only girth to have been tested with and developed in conjunction with the BEF World Class Programme.
Team officials were so impressed by the girth they asked us to keep it a secret and delay its launch until after the London Olympics because they thought it would give Team GBR an added advantage.
It is also the only girth to be tested using pressure mapping (by Pliance) and gait analysis (by Centuar Biomechanics).
The Veterinary Journal published a scientific paper about the test results.
