What’s the benefit of using girth covers?

If you’ve ever seen a Kentucky girth with vegan sheepskin, you might have noticed that the sheepskin is detachable. This has multiple benefits. Are you curious to learn more, continue reading.

The benefits of Vegan sheepskin

Our vegan sheepskin is already quite popular. It’s very long-lasting and easier to maintain than real sheepskin. Just wash it at 30 degrees and hang it to dry, and the sheepskin will look brand new. On top of that is vegan sheepskin hypoallergenic, as the fabric contains no lanolin.

Benefits of the vegan sheepskin covers

Our girths are equipped with a vegan sheepskin cover. This cover is not a sleeve you put over your girth, but it is easily attached and detached by a strong hook and loop closure. Therefore, you can’t use the girths without the sheepskin. Click here if you’re looking for girth that you can use without the covers.

One of the benefits of this extra cover is that you always have a spare one when one of your covers is in the washing machine. You don’t need to wait for it to dry, and you can just keep on riding.

You can also change the color of the sheepskin. The covers are available in natural sheepskin, black or brown. So, you can adjust it to the color of your girth, saddle, or horse.

If you ride several horses a day, the sheepskin might get sweaty. To avoid rubbing, or just for improved hygiene, you can easily change the cover per horse. Also, if you have a horse with a skin infection, you won’t spread the bacteria as each horse has their own cover.
