The Mikmar Company continues to offer innovative products with the introduction of the Mikmar Comfort Girth, the girth that allows freedom of movement and breathing.
Scientific studies have proven that a tightened Girth inhibits optimum performance of a horse. Specifically, over tightening and rigid girthing affects the respiratory function and compresses the muscles, which reduces blood flow and the supply of oxygen. This can result in spasms, impaired movement, reduced power, uneven gaits, defense reactions and refusals. The solution is the Mikmar Comfort Girth. A Girth designed to move with the horse for maximum performance and comfort!
Manufactured in Europe, the Mikmar Comfort Girth is a new and improved version of the Le Tixerant Girth. The Mikmar Comfort Girths incorporate a wide center Gibaud panel, a technical material made in France, with quality padded leather, attractive stitching and roller buckles. Most elastic girths, even the more ‘advanced’ girths have elastic on both ends. The problem is that they stretch in the wrong place, at the sides of the horse where pressure is already minimal. The Gibaud elasticized panel in the center allows the horse’s ribs to expand and contract without restriction. This unique elastic panel covers a much larger area of your horses belly, reducing pressure and virtually eliminate the risk of pinching. The panel is lined with a natural non-slip alveolar rubber and is positioned over the sternum to keep the saddle centralized and fully secure to prevent the saddle from slipping.
“We listened to the riders requests and re-designed the girths to specifically address the USA customers’ needs” says Dan Weyand, President of the Mikmar Company. An addition of a safety strap inner woven between the Gibaud Panel prevents riders over tightening the elastic fabric, thus improving durability, overall structure, and product longevity. The Gibaud center panel is now black in color, instead of gray, improving appearance with less visibility of the panel under the belly. High quality padded leather, attractive stitching, and roller buckles, offer a more elegant appearance and improved durability. A center section replacement service that will re-furbish an older girth if needed.
