Rode in the EquiFit BellyBand this morning and I absolutely love it. Decided to put it over my saddle pad, to minimize grossness. I also wasn’t sure how he’d react with something stretchy wrapped all the way around him - but he didn’t seem to mind.
Pretty easy to put on. There 2 different Velcro closures - so there is some adjustability to the band. It was bunching a little when I went to tightened the girth the first time, so I pulled it a little more snug - using the tighter “setting” and that alleviated the bunching.
Very comfortable to ride in - for myself and Baron. No bunching, slipping or sliding. The black lines are girth loops that secure with Velcro further back so they can be fully undone. There’s 2 of the girth loops on each side and snap by the withers on either side to secure it to the saddle - ensuring it’s not going anywhere.
It seems rather breathable - he only sweat where the Velcro tabs and girth were (though that will be better tested in hot weather) - it also dried off and cleaned up quickly/easily as well. I will probably wash it when I wash my saddle pads. Overall very pleased with it. Two thumbs up 👍👍
