Fairfax Girths | Throstlenest Saddlery
The Fairfax girth is the only one of its kind to have been tested and developed in partnership with the British Equestrian Federation’s (BEF) World Class Programme. Designed and handmade in the UK, the high-quality Fairfax was developed using cutting-edge research into how a horse’s performance can be improved. The result is a girth that reduces pressure by up to 82%, while increasing the range of movement and making sure gait is correctly aligned.
One of the key features of the Fairfax dressage girth is a cushioned buffer zone that guides the muscle bulk underneath rather than blocking it. Furthermore, its unique shape avoids pressure points on the horse’s body, reducing the risk of soreness and irritation. In fact, it is the only girth to have been tested using pressure mapping and gait analysis, and details of its success published in The Veterinary Journal. Thanks to its high performance, members of Team GBR chose this brand when they competed in the London 2012 Olympics.
We are proud to stock a range of Fairfax girths suitable for dressage, jumping and general riding to give your horse the best in comfort.
