Fairfax Performance Short Girth
The Fairfax Performance Short Girth was the best kept weapon of the 2012 Olympics Games. The Performance girth is so revolutionary that British team managers asked for it to be kept secret until after the games. During the training of the British Squad Team the Fairfax Performance Girth was tested and developed with the help of Centuar Biomechanics who studied gait analysis to test the effect of the girth on the horses performance. The results were astonishing -
'We recorded up to 33% improvement in forelimb protraction and general range of motion of every elite horse tested' * results were compared to the horses own girth.
The Fairfax Performance Short Girth has been designed using Pliance. Pliance is pressure mapping technology which is used to identify exact locations of high pressure zones under the girth. The readings gathered have been used to design the Fairfax Performance girth, proven to reduce pressures by as much as 82%.
The other main design detail to take note of is the lining of the Performance Girth - lined with Prolite which is known for its ability to distribute pressure, absorb impact and prevent rubbing. The Prolite edge allows the horse's muscles to move underneath rather than bang against the girth.
So what does all this technology mean to you and your horse? The Fairfax Performance Girth is proven to dramatically reduce pressure points allowing your horse to move in comfort. Both front leg extension and hock flexion is increased.Improve your horse's symmetery and freedom of movement, improves neatness over fences and increases power over fences.
