Position the girth straps to achieve optimal saddle stability.
NOTE: On GP and dressage saddles with a point strap, DO NOT USE positions 1 & 2 together. This could cause saddle instabilty.
Always girth in the neutral position (2 & 3) when the saddle is first ridden.
If the saddle moves forwards use positions 1 & 3.
If the saddle lifts at the back use 2 & 4.
For increased stability, on a round barrelled / flat backed horse, use positions 1 & 4.
Step 1: Feed the strap through the ring with the point upwards and the top side of the strap face down against the sweat flap.
Step 2: Curl the strap round and through the webbing loop.
Step 3: Pull the strap tight ensuring the webbing loop lies flat against the top of the strap. (Reverse the above steps to remove a girth strap).
