Stud GirthsStud girths are used whilst jumping. They are designed to protect your horses stomach when he bends his front legs over the jump. So he does not bruise himself or even puncture himself with a stud when jumping on grass. A horse can quickly become scared of jumping if he accidently hurts himself like this when jumping. That is why it is important to play safe and buy a stud guard. They are available in all shapes and sizes in a variety of colours.
