Performance Girth

Fairfax Performance Girth

(Patent: GB110213432 Design reg: 001839028)

Kept secret to give a competitive
advantage to Team GBR

The Fairfax Performance Girth is something completely new. By contrast with the all the testing and knowledge accumulated on saddles and saddle-fitting, there is really very little on girths and girthing. Until now.

Increases the horse’s performance by:

• Dramatically reducing pressure
• Significantly increasing range of movement
• Eliminating gait asymmetry

The only girth to have been tested during its development in conjunction with the BEF World Class Programme

During squad training, Centaur Biomechanics gait analysis was used to test the effect of the girth on the horses’ performance.

"We recorded up to 33% improvement in forelimb protraction and general range of motion of every elite horse we tested” *

*results were compared to the horses’ own girth

The only girth to have been designed with Pliance

Team GBR Supplier

Pliance pressure mapping technology was used to identify the exact location of high-pressure zones under the girth. The readings were then used to design the performance girth, which is proven to reduce
peak pressures by as much as 82%

New Narrow Gauge Girth range

How to measure for narrow gauge girth
Designed specifically to fit those horses (and most ponies) with a narrower rib cage.

To check whether a horse falls into the narrow gauge category, measure the flat area between the horse’s elbows.

If the measurement is less than 20cm then the narrow gauge version is needed to ensure a perfect fit between the front legs.

 
 

Design Details

Lined with Prolite® - known for its ability to distribute pressure, absorb impact and prevent rubbing

New construction method allows the Prolite® edge "to float" so the horse's muscles can move underneath rather than bang against

Combination of the contour and the cushioning creates a buffer zone and prevents a "hard" edge
