The Fairfax Performance Long Girth (Patent: GB110213432 Design reg: 001839028) Kept secret to give a competitive advantage to Team GBR Greatly reduces pressure Increases hock flexion Increases front leg extension Improves neatness over fence Greatly reduces pressure Increases power on take-off Improves gait symmetryThe only girth to have been tested in conjunction with the BEFDuring squad training, Centaur Biomechanics gait analysis was used to test the effect of the girth on the horses’ performance. With up to 33% improvement in forelimb protraction and general range of motion of every elite horse was tested againts the results compared to the horses’ own girth Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics "The only girth to have been designed with PliancePliance pressure mapping technology was used to identify the exact location of high-pressure zones under the girth. The readings were then used to design the performance girth, which is proven to reduce peak pressures by as much as 82%"Design DetailsLined with Prolite known for its ability to distribute pressure, absorb impact and prevent rubbing New construction method allows the Prolite edge to float so the horse’s muscles can move underneath, rather than bang against Combination of the contour and the cushioning creates a buffer zone and prevents a hard edgeHorses increasingly adjust to the reduced level of restriction and discomfort, so movement continues to improve if the girth is used for schooling and competition.Use & Care All styles of girth must be used in the direction indicated on the girth i.e. with the central curved section facing forwards. Martingales, breastplates, training aids etc. must be connected to the central loop, not passed between the girth and the horse. Wipe sweat off the girth immediately after use and use leather feeder regularly to maintain the softness of the leather. When not in use, always detach the girth and lay on top of the saddle so the curvature is maintained. For best results, use during competition and schooling.
