The new Safetik® System on CWD’s girths is a magnetized leather snap hook guard. It’s safer, limiting the risk of the horse catching its shoes or studs in the snap hook. Its thermoformed leather casing also keeps the reins away from the horse’s feet. It’s practical, snapping into place instantaneously, and provides permanent protection against dirt. And it’s esthetically pleasing, protecting against premature wear and tear of the leather by maintaining the snap hook permanently in place. Finally, unlike velcro, magnetic attraction does not decrease over time.
