Mattes ingenuity comes through in the SLIM-LINE Girths. Available in all four styles of Mattes girths: Asymmetric, Athletico, Contoured, and Crescent in both long and short, the SLIM-LINE girths feature a detachable sheepskin cover with leather closures and a leather base rather than the traditional quilt fabric, for a sleek, low profile appearance. Leather is available in BLACK, BROWN, and CHAMPAGNE. Sheepskin covers are available in all the Mattes Couture Sheepskin colors. The base is a washable leather instead of the quilt fabric. Washable leather color options: Brown (03), Black (02), Champagne (11). There is more to saddle fitting than assessing the horse’s topline. The saddle position in relation to the natural girth position, length of withers, and the alignment of withers, shoulder, and elbows all have an effect on the saddle. E.A. Mattes has revolutionary girth shapes that address and correct the various issues that arise from certain conformation types.
