Innovation, safety, and attention to detail are the keywords to describe this girth. Completely made of composite material (TPU) and eco-leather, and equipped with the new Acavallo Gel Padding System, the anatomic girth is designed with your horse's comfort in mind.
The special design of the gel panel eliminates the risk of pinching and relieves pressure on the sensitive internal organs of your horse, also allowing increased blood circulation and supply of oxygen. The arrangement of the individual gel padding elements has been developed to facilitate breathing and reduce transpiration by means of a sophisticated airflow pattern, preventing excessive heat accumulation, even under high-performance conditions.
Not a single detail was left to chance during the development and the testing stages of the girth, this applies in particular to the new and patented Acavallo® safety fastening hook, designed to eliminate the need for additional snap hooks, e.g. on the martingale, or for the strap and buckle elements on the belly plate of the girth which always imply high risks of entangling and falling of the horse when jumping. In addition to this safety concern which Acavallo had in mind when developing this special hook – i.e. creating a smooth martingale/girth connection excluding any unnecessary, potential points of engagement of the horseshoe or hoof – ease of use was another main objective implemented in the design of this sturdy and long-life hook. Martingale fastening and removal have never been so easy. You can attach and remove the martingale/breastplate strap with ease with just a simple movement, without having to loosen the saddle. The little closing tab (see illustrations), which is almost invisible and placed at the tip of the hook ensures maximum safety by preventing the martingale strap from being released accidentally.
The anatomic shape of the girth allows your horse the freedom they need to move and perform at their best.
