Fabulous accessories to match your bespoke saddle, handmade in our Walsall factory from the finest leathers
Short Softie Girth
The Ryder short softie girth is a short girth to be used with both our dressage and jump saddles, this girth is shaped and contoured to allow for the freedom of the horses forelimbs and shoulders. Super soft and comfortable. The girth straps go directly into the buckles with no fiddly keeper to thread through first. This allows the rider to be able to lean down and tighten their own girth if necessary. The girth straps also tuck neatly and securely through the wide keeper below the buckles. Made from calf skin to match the saddles, with no inside seaming or stitch . Available in cognac, chestnut, chocolate & black, size 20 - 30" and in any colour thread.
The Long Softie Girth
The Long Softie girth is made from soft calf skin and is foam lined to give it a cushion soft feel for your horse. Available with or without elastic the foam finishes six inches from the top of the girth so you don't have any extra padding under your leg when you are girthed up. Super soft, contoured and beautifully made with a D ring. Available in cognac, chestnut, chocolate & black from size 34"-60" and any colour thread to match your saddle.
