This girth is beautifully crafted with soft mohair and the roper shape allows for plenty of elbow freedom. I've ridden with it for a week now and my very, very sensitive mare approves!
Our Mohair Girths are handmade here in California using premium 100% Mohair and stainless steel hardware. We can make any size in a variety of colors. Price changes depending on size and style. We use only natural fiber materials in our girths including a generous wool buckle backing. Dressage girths come standard with buckle backs. Jumping length girths as traditionally made, do not come with buckle backs as it would increase bulk without a purpose. All girths are custom made to your specification and may take up to 4-6 weeks to produce.

WWEC Girths and Cinches have been used in events like Tevis, 100 miles rides and multi day rides. They are our most popular item. Very successful endurance riders like Heather R, Mark M, Karen C, Dave R and Diane S use them. Many riders after using our girths and cinches report no longer having girth rubs or heat / friction issues, better saddle stabilization and happier horses. No product will fix issues for every horse. If you have a horse having girth problems please contact us for possible solutions.
Regular Style: 14 strand girth with accent colors at end and middle.
Roper Style: Double strands with a wider center and narrower top for better weight distribution and less width behind elbow.
Free N Easy: Girth especially made for FnE V Girthing systems with a different length of front and back billets. Please choose size of longer portion of girth and write in the notes on your order the shorter portion size.
Split Style: Girth is only attached in the center. Then two separate pieces come out to the buckles. Fantastic and advised for a V girthing system or a Criss Cross system. For example a specialized ultra lite or pandora work great with this girth. It increases the surface area of weight distribution and reduces bulk in the armpit to prevent rubbing. Allows the girth to follow the path of your billets. Not advised if your billets come straight down together.
Dyed mohair is not guaranteed color fast. We've tried to photograph the available mohair colors but dye lots do vary and monitors may present colors differently. Wool comes in natural and dyed black. Items are custom made for you so they may take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to ship out. Please e-mail us for a exact shipment time. To figure out sizing please measure your current girth with it on your horse girthed up or the ends pulled apart with pressure. Not sitting flat on a table and don't trust the measurement on the tag. If your current girth has elastic please go up one or two sizes. Mohair does not stretch or shrink. But it can adjust slightly over the first few rides as it gets dirty, generally not more than 1/2". We make our girths as close to size as possible but this is a art form and slight deviations are possible.
What is mohair?
Mohair is the lustrous and strong hair of the Angora goat. Often referred to as the "diamond fiber," the distinctive properties of mohair have made it a highly desired fiber for clothing and home furnishings. Prior to the development of synthetics, mohair was the fiber of choice for horse cinches. Due to the increased demand for quality products, today's saddle makers and horseman have rediscovered the benefits of mohair for cinches and girths, as well as breast collars and reins.

Excellent workmanship. I always order my girths from this store. I have 4 that I use for different horses and saddles. Recommend them anytime. 5 Stars Review!
This girth was made exactly how I asked it to be done. It was shipped in a timely manner and the quality is great. The colors are vibrant too. My horse has stopped galling after rides now with the mohair instead of neoprene that I was using. I got the split style works which woks well with my saddle that has y style billets. If I need another made, I will come back here for sure! Thanks
I loved my first ones so much that I have purchased a second one! The girth holds the saddle in place without slippage, and doesn’t pull the saddle forward/backward, the separation of the girth helps it stay in place. Also, no galling! One of the best things I have done for Mariah!
The custom mohair roper girth I ordered is PERFECT. Excellent quality and well made. Thank you very much!
Just received this in the mail and it is lovely! Looks to have beautiful workmanship. I will add to this review after I have used it on my very sensitive mule.
This mohair girth is great for my saddle, it's soft and looks well made. I've only used it 3 times so far, two short rides on the ranch where I board and a 20 mile training ride. So far it's great!
This girth is a beautiful work of art in black, red, & grey. The quality is wonderful, the yarn is thick, soft, and strong. Highly recommend!
Love the quality and colors! Thank you!
Love the quality and colors! Thank you!
My girth turned out beautiful and was sent to me very fast!!
I don't buy any others now, the best hair, colors and workmanship - I just ordered our 4th. The older ones are still soft and gorgeous!
Love it. Works perfectly for my horse.
They are pretty, perfectly functional and safe for my horse's skin, and they stand up to some serious use!
Elicia made me a beautiful girth and matching reins. The reins are so soft in my hands, I love them.
The quality on these girths is incredible. I haven't had a single girth gall since I started using them (including on a 200 mile/ 4 day) ride. They are also really durable. I accidentally put them through the washer and dryer, which is not a good idea, but they held up beautifully despite my abuse.
I've put a year of solid riding on this girth and it has held up remarkably well. No complaints from my super sensitive horse, excellent quality, and very happy with how willing Elicia was to work with me on a custom size and answer my questions about caring for the girth. Ridden in all conditions, and up to 75 miles at once, no problems. Thank you!
These girths are top notch! The workmanship is excellent and the color combinations available are endless makes owning many very easy! I have used this girth on five different horses without any issues at all. I'm looking forward to ordering another in purple for my stud muffin. Cheers, diane xoxo
Absolutely love these beautiful handmade pieces. Have put lots of miles on my girths by HnW and they hold up beautifully
