Please note there has been a minor design change in these girths and we are currently holding stock of both versions, they all have the same benefits. We have added photos of the two versions side by side so you can see the difference in the rings/keepers. If you specifically want one version please contact us to confirm prior to ordering/shipping.
The StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ by Total Saddle Fit brings the next level of intuition to functional girths. It is hands downs the most technologically advanced girth available. Not only does the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ provide the same shoulder freedom and elbow comfort as its predecessor, but it has a one-of-a-kind patented (US Patent No. D843,666) triangular centre elastic feature for additional performance. The triangular centre elastic allows the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ to expand with the 1.5cm chest expansion that horses experience while breathing. Its design also allows it to stretch in a more anatomically friendly way to contour better to a horse’s barrel and provide even contact through the sternum area.
On top of the functional and performance benefits, the StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ also comes with a removable and interchangeable liner (cover). This makes washing easier and gives you many more options. Now your one girth can easily be changed from wool lining to leather or neoprene lining.
This girth comes with a black wool liner only (seperate liners can be ordered).
The StretchTec Shoulder Relief Girth™ also features:
- available in sizes 18-34″
- English leather girth body with stainless steel hardware
- one-of-a-kind patented design (US Patent No. D843,666).

Sceptical but now convincedBy: Sue on 19 January 2023I have always used top brand and quality girths for my horses. The pony whom I bought this girth for had, I discovered, a short sternum. Just vague feeling my usual girth/S weren’t quite right so I decided to give this a go. Interesting. He is certainly comfortable with it. It sits very nicely and because of the cut I can position it away from his elbow while accomodating his short sternum. When onboard I tightened the girth per usual and I immediately felt the front of the saddle settle better on his shoulders. So yes
