This exciting new Free Space Girth from WOW™ will get your horse moving more freely! The massive success of this girth has changed the lives of many horses, allowing them to move more freely and comfortably.
This new innovative patented design has an Active Cushion Sternum Plate that has two parts. The outer is a reinforced plate that will not give under girth tension. This is spaced away from the horse by the Active Cushion which holds the Sternum Plate away from the horse’s rib cage. The Sternum Plate makes the girth straps bridge the pectoral muscles and it is this lack of pressure that is the key to allowing the horse to engage by the use of an unimpeded Rectus Abdominus and better leg retraction due to the Ascending Pectoral muscles not being squashed!
The girth is made from a synthetic leather that you will have to look hard to notice the difference. The reason we use synthetic material is because of its’ superior qualities of keeping clean and looking great even after years of use.
Girths straps can be the same or different lengths dependant on your horses and your requirements. They can be changed at any time in the future very easily.
The Free Space (Dressage) version girths has buckle ends which can be separate like our H Girth or they can be joined using a double buckle guard.
The Free Space Long Version has girth sleeves included, which have been designed to help stop pinching.
Like all WOW™ products modularity is key and these different buckle guards, straps, and girth sleeves can all be purchased separately.
Sam and her horse bear have provided us with a brilliant before and after of their first FreeSpace Girth use! Before, riding in a wow H girth, Bear is tense and shows resistance. After in the FreeSpace Girth, she is engaged and willing. The difference is visible and remarkable.
WOW Ambassador Gillian Higgins has been trying our new FreeSpace girth for a couple of weeks now, and she has kindly given us her comments about the product!
“’Tried your FreeSpace today. Horse loves the Split Elegance and moves lovely so it would have to be significantly better to order one.
Warmed up in the Elegance, went lovely. Put FreeSpace on. Yes, he went well but not massively. He was warmed up and flowing. Put him back in the Elegance. Might as well have put a W***** on him! Flat, seemingly tired. Got his mojo back after a lengthen up the long side in canter. As Louisa said. He’s not fit, he’s fed up stop starting so… So I annoyed him even more by putting FreeSpace back on. Well! Lifted his tail, lowered his pert little bottom and off he went! Bl**** hell! It was as though we needed to let him try back and forth so he could decide. And decide he did. So he’s going to have a FreeSpace with his show saddle.
I was somewhat surprised by the result I have to say.”
