How to decide

When looking at dressage girths, firstly consider your budget. Good quality performance girths nowadays are typically priced from £180 upwards. The Bliss Soft Dressage girth priced at £160 is one of the best quality performance girths available on the market.

You should also decide whether you want a girth that is elasticated (look for girths that are elasticated both ends), or one without elastic?
